Winemaker Notes

The appearance is still of a very intense wine with a red/black mixture that is impenetrable to the eye.

On the bouquet that this wine shows particularly savory characters with nuts, fennel and herbal touches along with a briary, woody overlay. Not forgetting that there are some lovely fruit flavors peeping through, and these are in the red berry spectrum.

When you taste the wine the fruit flavors are far more prominent, with raspberry and red currant dominating. The alcohol is a very respectable 13.5 degrees. The wine is soft at the finish, as this is in total harmony with the fruit and the aromas.

The softness certainly makes the wine an attractive drinking proposition in its youth, although the balance of the wine will allow it to develop further in the bottle. There is every reason to believe that this particular wine will still be drinking well in 7 to 10 years.

Look towards food that will spotlight the herbal aniseed flavors. Cubes of Veal braised slowly with some fennel bulbs amongst other vegetables will certainly bring out this character.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Other than Clarendon Hills’ flagship Astralis Syrah, the only single vineyard Syrah we tasted was the 1998 Syrah Brookman Vineyard, which exhibits abundant aromas of roasted meats, blackberries, earth, and pepper as well as hints of charcoal and smoke. This full-bodied, rich Syrah is in no danger of falling apart, and will easily last another decade. The mini-vertical of Astralis covered four of the older vintages I have in my cellar. All of these wines performed fabulously well, and, as suggested by their early reviews, are wines that will take at least 10-15 years to hit their peak, and should easily last for 2-3 decades or more.

Clarendon Hills Winery Video

Clarendon Hills is a small family-run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. The company was founded by biochemist, Roman Bratasiuk, in 1990. The story of Clarendon Hills is one of passion, dedication and commitment to exception wine. It all began when this biochemist and wine lover decided to produce his own wine. Though he'd never trained as a winemaker, Roman let himself be guided by his refined palate and scientific knowledge. Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.
