94Wine Spectator

Impressive, this is both powerful and elegant, with bittersweet chocolate, fresh blackberry and strong Earl Grey tea flavors that are spicy, aromatic and harmonious. Features fresh-cracked black pepper, a hint of spearmint oil and a touch of cigar box on the long, expressive finish, with polished, dense tannins.

93Vinous / IWC

It opens with graphite and peppery lift well matched to rich chocolate and blackberry aromas. Bold yet beautifully detailed. It offers the best of both worlds with more luscious flavors underpinned by touches of undergrowth and dried herbs before a lengthy finish.


Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley

South Australia is the nation’s most important wine region. South Australia is to Australia what California is to the U.S. About half of Australia’s wine comes from South Australia and many of the country’s most acclaimed producers are there. Wineries based in South Australia include Penfolds Grange, Torbreck, Amon Ra, Henschke and Jacob’s Creek. The prestigious Barossa Valley is located in South Australia, and is often compared to Napa Valley because it is gorgeous topography covered in grape vines. First farmed by 19th century German-speakers who immigrated from what is now Poland, the Barossa Valley is the crown jewel of the region. South Australia has widely varying climates, from very hot, dry areas to cooler, high altitude areas. There are more than 150,000 acres of vineyards in South Australia, with more being planted each month. Shiraz is king, though the region also produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mourvedre, Chardonnay and Semillon.


Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
