Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Shiraz Bin 128 (from Coonawarra) has a good core of pronounced black fruits, loam and tar with chargrill notes plus a hint of black pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is led by structure with a solid backbone, taut fruit and great length, going earthy/peppery on the finish.

Varietal: Syrah

There continues to be much debate surrounding the name of the Shiraz/Syrah grape varietal, with many experts still quite unsure which came first. Indeed, even the origins of this varietal are more or less unknown, despite it being most commonly associated with the Rhone Valley of France, and New World countries, most notably Australia. However, its popularity and unique characteristics have seen it planted all over the world, where it continues to impress with its powerful flavors and wonderfully spicy notes of pepper and clove. Shiraz/Syrah wines are renowned also for their versatility, and are regularly used in single variety still and sparkling wines, as well as blended and oak aged wines which demonstrate its ability to express its terroir and secondary flavors very well.

Region: Limestone Coast

The Limestone Coast is one of the most well known and highly esteemed wine regions of South Australia, situated near the border with Victoria in the south-eastern part of the country. Limestone Coast has proven over the decades to be something of an ideal region for vineyard cultivation, as it benefits enormously from beautiful climatic conditions which include plenty of year round sunshine, tempered by brisk oceanic winds. All of the vineyards in the region are situated at low altitudes, and even during the dry ripening season, the vineyards are close enough to the water table to have plenty of access to the moisture required for growing exceptional, healthy and flavorful grapes. When it comes to grape varietals, vintners have had success with a wide range of grapes. However, the Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz varietals produce the most famous red wines of the region, with Chardonnay and Viognier grapes proving to be exceptionally fine for the region's white wines.

Country: Australia

Whilst every Australian state has some level of wine production, it is in South Australia and on the island of Tasmania where the finest wines are made to the highest quantities. Here, the scorching Australian sun is a little tamer, and the heat is tempered by brisk oceanic winds, making the climate of these regions ideal for vineyard cultivation. The Tamar Valley on Tasmania has been making waves internationally in recent years, as both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varietals are thriving there and resulting in hugely flavorful wines, which are at once distinctly Australian, yet remain unique and interesting enough to surprise and impress. Elsewhere in the country, the Syrah grape (known locally as Shiraz) reigns supreme, as the long, hot summers allow these grapes to ripen fully and lend their intensely fruit-forward character to the ruby red Australian wines, which have such international appeal.
