Winemaker Notes

Full body with deep and dark purple color. Bacchanal sweet nose with dried banana chips, fruit in rum, fruitcake, pickled plums, compote of blueberries, violets, cardamom, passion fruit and chocolate muffin. Iridescent sweetness hitting the palate with a thick and dense but silky texture. Dried fruit and banana chips do the kick-off followed by sweet cherry fruit, light toffee, macadamia nuts, vanilla cream, blueberry muffin, glacé cherry and liquid milk chocolate in a sheer endless finish of multiple minutes.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Made with fruit coming from 3.5 acres of 100-year-old vines, the deep garnet-purple colored 2005 Shiraz is a 17.6% alcohol wine that spends more than 40 months in oak. The nose flaunts beautiful notes of black fruit preserves, sandalwood, mocha and dark chocolate allied with licorice, earth, toast and a subtle nuttiness. Very big, rich and concentrated, the full-bodied palate is framed by medium to firm, very fine tannins and a vibrant line of acid that gives nice lift at the end. This gorgeous wine shows a very, very long finish.

Chris Ringland Winery Image
Chris Ringland, owner and winemaker of namesake wines, Ringland Vintners, uses fruit from his own small Stone Creek Chimney Vineyard, in the Barossa Ranges of Southern Australia. The vines there are nearly 100 years old. Yields are miniscule—one ton an acre—and production is correspondingly low, 60 to 100 cases a year. Ringland is known as a maverick Shiraz producer and is also known for his former winery, Three Rivers.

Barossa Valley Wine

Barossa, Australia

View all products

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in the Barossa zone of South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds.

While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
