This was a surprise hit among a group of wines of more refined pedigree. I would recommend as a versatile house wine that won't disappoint.
We bought 17 Wines from wine.com rated 90+, have drank about 8 of them, and this is the best, and unbelievably the least costly. (Please don't raise price based on my comment) One of the best wines I have ever tasted, and my wife agrees. Will continue to buy more.
A customer of mine gave me a bottle of this fine shiraz. I was skeptical when I noticed a twist-off cap instead of a cork. However, don't let that fool you. This is a very good Shiraz. It is very smooth and, at first, i found it too sweet....but, after letting it breathe, it was just perfect. It definitely is in the category of wines that wakes up your inner cheek with a richness of almost effervescent flavor. Drink it at 68 degrees. This is totally worth the $11 it costs, trust me. Just wish it had a cork!
Not an big fan of this wine. It is very sweet.
I saw all the good reviews and ordered this one. But it's disappointing. Way too sweet and no character at all. But look at the price, I guess I can't complain.
Robust nose - earthy fruit tones jump out of the glass. On the palate, the fruit comes forward but the earth tones carry through in the background, with a hint of spice. Tart berries on the finish (which is short but fresh). Overall I find this to be a big, bold and balanced - a very nice Shiraz. I'm weeping in my glass as I write, as the vintage is no longer available - I wish I had bought more.
I saw that someone called this sweet? To me, it is anything but! It is very harsh when first opened, let it breathe for a bit. It is nice for the price, but I have had better Shiraz for a few bucks more. Having said that, I will buy another case. It works out by the pool with grilled burgers, ribs, steaks. I see this as a wine to serve for casual entertaining.
I enjoyed this wine although I can spend a couple dollars more and get some Shiraz that I like even better. The screw top makes a great wine for that trip out of town when you don't want to worry about a cork screw. Better than most $10 Shiraz but you can get better for a few more dollars.
90 WS pts. is my baseline, but this was more grapey than I'd anticipated. The Liesingham Bin 61 Shiraz /04 was MUCH better.
A very nice value Auzzie shiraz - bright, full of fruit, pepper and mineral tastes - great value and a great wine
worst in vegas
this wine is a winner....and the price can't be beat
I bought this for a friend and she raved about it's fruitiness and smoothness. "A light and wonderful experience".
Rich, full bodied, smooth, nice finish, an exceptional choice at a below $10 price point. I've ordered several cases.
I didn't enjoy this as much as the 2 Up or Yalumba Shiraz that we sampled that night.
Truly delightful shiraz. Smooth. Great tannins. Wonderful. Bought this in a trial quantity and immediately turned in an order for a case. Everyone will love this beauty.
Don't really think it is a WS90, but for $10 is a good deal. A bit of sweetness surprised me.
if you like a dollop of berry flavor then this is the best example of Aussie Shiraz for the price. great bargain wine.
Good taste, not too full. Sweeter than I anticipated but not too sweet.
ooops. The person who called this a sweet wine, was not here on wine.com I saw that when I did a google search.
What a pleasant suprise on this one. A great lighter bodied Shiraz that WS has hit right on. This is a great bargain!
My husband like this Shiraz very much as a basic wine with dinner. It's consistant flavor mixes well with many meals
nice wine, good body, spicy, strong finish
Big, smooth, bold but not rough. Well balanced with a nice nose. Just the way I like the Aussie reds. Great vineyard. What a simple pleasure.
This wine gives you more than you pay for in quality. It is not too "peppery "on the finish as some of the Aussies .
