Wine Style Guide

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

A dry, low cropping season following a continuation of drought conditions in Southern Australia which have now entered their eighth year.

The color has bright youthful purples and dark red, with an aroma of mixed berries with peppery, spicy overtones. On the palate the wine has very sweet fruit with fine grained tannins, excellent fleshy middle palate and a long soft finish.

Critical Acclaim

"An homage to the Sydney wine shop and restaurant of Len Evans, the late, great international impresario of Australian wine, Bulletin Place is a spicy shiraz with bright blueberry flavors. It’s juicy, warm and peppery, a red to serve with grilled lamb kabobs."

Style: Light & Fruity
This is an old favourite from when I lived in Australia! A really good value quaffer ideally suited to sunny afternoons around the barbeque with friends and/or family. It slips down easily (too easily on many occassions!), has lots of fruit and a mouthful of flavour. Recommend it to anyone looking for good value red!
