    Winemaker Notes

    Pyrenees Varietal wines represent that special combination of widely acclaimed cool climate Pyrenees district vineyard characteristics and the winemaking skill to create wines where the true varietal character is best expressed. Shiraz produces some of Australias finest dry red, especially from regions where grapes develop highly concentrated flavours. For the Blue Pyrenees Shiraz, our winemakers have selected outstanding parcels of fruit from low yielding vines of the Pyrenees to achieve a classic representation of the grape variety, and create a wine of intense flavours with fine grained tannins and an elegant structure. The wine is rich and dense in colour with garnet hues. The opulent nose shows red and black berry fruits and a touch of spice. The palate is generous and full, with excellent fruit flavours integrated with subtle oak and a firm tannin finish. This is a dry red that drinks well early, but will also reward cellaring.

    Blue Pyrenees Estate, Australia
    This "Love, study or pursuit of wisdom" is the philosophy behind the unique character of Blue Pyrenees Estate. Unique, meaning unmatched, unequalled, relates to our insistence on using only the most select Estate grown fruit. In this way we ensure that the wines will be rich in the unique flavours and character of the Estate grown grape varieties.

    A further expression of our philosophy is to be found in the diversity of our viticulture, where science and art come together to ensure the wine has rich and balanced flavours. All our Estate wines are complex and harmonious blends of a number of varieties from many different blocks within our vineyards.

    The marriage of unique terrior and skilled assemblage is really the heart and soul of Blue Pyrenees Estate wines.

    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.
