Winemaker's Notes

The 2004 Annie's Lane Shiraz is dark, plummy red in color. Aromas of spice, pepper and dark berry fruit characterise the lifted nose. The palate has subtle integrated oak and silky tannins, creating a luscious mouthfeel to support the spicy cherry and blackberry fruit flavors.

Food pairings: Beef Wellington with glazed winter vegetables

Cellaring: Enjoy now or cellar for 5 to 7 years.

"This is an outstanding value."
-International Wine Cellar

"...this bargain-priced beauty is more about displaying the Clare Valley terroir than simple fruit or oak, unusual in this price range..."
-Wine Enthusiast

"For smoky, grilled meats, pizzas and veggies, I love the spicy richness of the Annie's Lane McLaren Vale Shiraz from Australia—it's perfect for a barbecue crowd."
-Decanter

"What I like best about it is that it's not overripe, so it maintains enough acidity to make it a good food wine in a category where many similar wines are not."
-San Francisco Chronicle

Price to value makes this a excellent choice. Smooth and no harsh overtones. Nice choice for those that like Shiraz.

For its price, this wine has tremendous body, bouquet, and flavor that will rival those costing much more. It paired very well with Italian and Chinese. I hope I can find this year in stock but I been having a difficult time finding it in the NYC area. If you are lucky to have the wine in your area, buy a case. Drink one now and save the rest for a few more years as its taste will reward you, now and even more later.

Smooth taste and robust flavor - very easy to enjoy, with no bitterness. Rated four because not as fullbodied as I like, but very good wine. Thanks.

This was very drinkable and affordable but had a more fruity flavor than I expected from a Shiraz.

This wine was pretty inexpensive for a good Shiraz. Never tried it before, but would definitely buy it again. Very enjoyable.

As the review title says. A good slugger wine for evenings after work. Priced right to open every night without breaking the bank. Not to over the top jammyness like some Shiraz. Best after about an hour of opening.

One evening, Annie's horse and cart got bogged in a lane adjacent to one of the valley's best vineyards. Thus, Annie's Lane was born. Annie' s Lane is now one of the finest wineries...
