Winemaker Notes

Garnet Colour. Complex aromas of blackberry, spice, plum and licorice give way to a subtle integration of smoky, vanillin oak. The palate is full of fleshy dark cherry and bramble fruit with dark chocolate nuances and savoury notes of leather and spice in the finish. The oak integrates well with the supple fruit, excellent tannin structure and balanced acidity all contribute to giving the wine great length and intensity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Ripe and open-textured, not weighty but focused and dense, with dark berry, plum and spice flavors, lingering nicely on the finish against fine tannins and a bay leaf note. Drink now through 2014
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Full-bodied and velvety in texture, this wine shows plenty of oak, but it's high-class oak, all cedar, spice and vanilla, wrapped around a core of casis. with some brighter fruit tones sneaking in as well. Drink now-2015.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
2006 Noble Baron Shiraz is made from 100% Shiraz, matured in new and older French oak for 24 months. Very deep garnet-black colored, it has pronounced aromas of macerated blackberries, mulberries, choco-mint, cassia and loam. Crisp with a medium level of very fine tannins, this is a full-bodied, well balanced Shiraz that gives a long warm berry finish. Drink it now to 2016+.

Chateau Tanunda, Barossa Valley, Barossa, Australia
Image of winery
Chateau Tanunda Estate, one of Australia's largest and oldest chateau (est. 1890), is the birthplace of the Barossan wine industry, and is the site of Barossa Valley's first vine plantings (1845) and first winery (1848). The charismatic John Geber, already a fine wine enthusiast, happened unpon the majestic chateau in 1998 on an early morning bike ride. It wasn't long before he had made it his mission to reinstate it to its former glory, becoming only the 3rd owner in the chateau's 120-year history. The Geber family is now the proud cutodian of this great icon and its heritage, and is dedicated to the art of fine winemaking.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as 1860. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, purple juice.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable aromatics, a savory palate, and an elegant texture, Syrah is capable of producing fascinatingly complex and long-lived wines with a stunning purple hue. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah’s best examples are found in Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. It is also an important component of the GSM blends of the Southern Rhône and beyond, alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre. Both varietal Syrah and GSM blends are common in Australia and California and are gaining popularity in Washington State. In Australia, Syrah is known by the synonym Shiraz, which tends to indicate a bolder, fruit-driven style of wine, and is occasionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for added depth and structure.

In the Glass

At its best, Syrah shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper, smoke, and even bacon fat. Many examples from California aim to recreate this savory style, while others focus more on concentrated fruit flavors. In Australia, under the name Shiraz, it shines as that country’s unofficial signature red grape, producing deep, dark, intense, and often jammy reds.

Perfect Pairings

Cool-climate Syrah, with its peppery spices, is a natural match with flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb dishes, where the spice is more about flavor than heat. With Australian Shiraz, grown in warmer regions, heavy meat dishes with abundant protein and fat are a necessity to match the intensity of the wine.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” this synonym for Syrah has been adopted by winemakers throughout the world. If the label says “Shiraz,” you can typically expect a plush, fruity, and potent wine made in the Australian style. New World "Syrah" will generally more closely resemble the French style.
