Striking, with dark, compact notes of huckleberry, wild blackberry, blueberry and espresso that are fragrant, pure and generous. Velvety tannins and details of cigar box, gunpowder tea, fresh cracked black pepper and spice go on and on. The finish is epic. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre.

A mélange of comforting aromas float from the glass: chocolate, plum, cherry, baking spice, cedar and graphite. The palate is full in feel, yet chiseled, with silky fruit and a cedary spice that flows to the finish. (Editors' Choice)

Rated 93 by Vinous Media
Saturated, bright-rimmed ruby. Expressive, smoke-tinged cherry and blueberry aromas are complemented by exotic spice, floral and licorice flourishes. Sappy, penetrating and seamless in texture, offering pliant red and blue fruit, spicecake and candied violet flavors that become firmer through the mid-palate. Finishes with impressive, spicy persistence and with polished tannins adding subtle grip.

Rated 92 by James Suckling
This is a blend of 47% shiraz, 34% grenache and 17% mourvedre with a gently earthy edge to the dark plums and blackberries, as well as blueberries and spicy, dry pepper. The palate has a supple and flavorful core of red and dark fruit. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Region: Barossa

The Barossa Valley in Australia is one of the New World's most interesting wine regions, having been established in the late 19th century by German settlers. The region benefits enormously from the relatively temperate climate, which ranges from being hot on the lower parts of the valley, to quite cool as the altitude increases on the valley slopes. Barossa Valley produces mostly Shiraz wines, and has become one of the key Australian regions for this distinctive grape varietal which has gone on to be a major grape for the Australian wine industry. Despite suffering from a poor reputation in the mid 20th century, by the 1980s, plenty of unique and forward-thinking wineries set up in Barossa to take advantage of its excellent climate, and set about producing the excellent red and white wines which the region is famed for today.

Country: Australia

Whilst most of Australia consists of arid deserts and dense bushland, the oceanic coasts to the south of the country have a terrain and climate ideal for vine cultivation and wine production. It took several decades of failed attempts at the end of the 18th century in order to produce vines of a decent enough quality for making wine, but since those first false starts, the Australian wine industry has continued to grow and grow. Today, wine production makes up for a considerable part of the Australian economy, with exports in recent years reaching unprecedented levels and even overtaking France for the first time ever. Whilst the greatest successes in regards to quality have been the result of the Syrah grape varietal (known locally as Shiraz), Australia utilizes several Old World grapes, and has had fantastic results from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Riesling, Chardonnay and more. As the Australian passion for locally produced wine continues to develop, wineries have begun experimenting with a wider range of grape varietals, meaning that nowadays it isn't uncommon to find high quality Australian wines made from Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, Tempranillo and Viognier, amongst many others.
