Black Opal, Australia
Black Opal's winemaking philosophy is to make and blend wine from a number of vineyards in order to produce wine of a specific predetermined style. Black Opal's parent company, Mildara Blass, sources grapes from vineyard sites in South Australia, including Barossa, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra, and Clare. Access to a number of vineyards/regions enables consistent high quality wine of perfect balance and character to be made.

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.
