92James Suckling

A fruity shiraz that shows blueberry compote, eucalyptus, vanilla and resin. Full-bodied with plush fruit that lines the palate and some lithe tannins that weave through the middle.

90The Wine Advocate

...attractive blend of fruity and savory—blackberries and black olives...medium to full-bodied, supple and smooth on the palate, finishing with a silky flourish and ample length. Certified organic.

90Wine Enthusiast

...notes of bright plum and cherry, intertwined with black olive and scrubby Mediterranean herbs. Supple fruit, savory tannins and lifted acidity tie the palate together into one classic South Aussie Shiraz...


Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale

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.
