96Robert M. Parker Jr.

...a spectacular, classic example of Barossa Shiraz...huge bouquet of white flowers, toast, blackberry liqueur, buleberries, and creosote. Packed with intensely concentrated black fruits and a spicy complexity...antithesis of elegance.

94James Halliday

Deep, intense colour; extremely powerful and concentrated; huge black fruits, huge tannins and masses of extract; will live forever if the cork holds.

93The Wine Advocate

... revealed a deep garnet-brick color and intense aromas of mulberry and fresh fig plus plenty of cloves and Indian spices... full body, medium-high level of fine-grained tannins, crisp acid and plenty of layers of dark berry fruits...


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.
