Winemaker Notes

The depth of color is dark. The aromas show intense blackberry fruit, pepper and spice. The palate is a big ripe sweet style of cedar and tobacco. Whilst a powerful style, shows a degree of softness and balance. Key element is the overwhelming fruity nature and the soft but strong oak tannin.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of fruit from McLaren Vale, Barossa, and Coonawarra, AusVetia’s inky/ruby/purple-tinged 2002 Shiraz offers peppery scents of blackberries and cassis as well as some blatant new oak. My instincts suggest the latter component will become better integrated with more time in the bottle. With supple tannin and a generous, broad personality, it should evolve for a decade or more.

Though Syrah originated in the Rhône Valley of France, Australia is home to the oldest Syrah (called Shiraz here) vines on the planet. Found in Australia’s Barossa Valley, where phylloxera has never threated viticulture, these ancient vines are between 140 to 175 years old!

Having brought fame and merit to the country’s wine scene since the early 1950s, namely via the debut of Penfolds Grange, today Syrah (Shiraz) claims rank as the most widely planted grape in Australia. In fact, the amount of land dedicated to Shiraz in Australia is now almost equivalent to what it is in France. Australian Shiraz has its own personality with flavors and aromas of intense blackberry, fruitcake, menthol, tobacco leaf and umami. Conveniently one can find great Australian Shiraz at a variety of price points but the very best will be dense, gloriously complex and capable of long aging.
