Winemaker's Notes:

Black, deep midnight purple. Liqueur coffee edge with ‘Black Kat' licorice, tobacco leaf, lifted spicey leather, sweet earthiness and Kalamata skin. Superb clarity and brightness of traditional elements expected in a classic Australian Syrah. Black fruit and savory components mingle on a weighted, meaty structure. Expressive, bright characters are counter-weighted by restraint exhibited in this elegantly positioned and lineated example.

About Clarendon Hills:

Clarendon Hills is a small family-run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. The company was founded by biochemist, Roman Bratasiuk, in 1990. The story of Clarendon Hills is one of passion, dedication and commitment to exception wine. It all began when this biochemist and wine lover decided to produce his own wine. Though he'd never trained as a winemaker, Roman let himself be guided by his refined palate and scientific knowledge. Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.
