Winemaker Notes

Blackened crimson. Lifted roast meats, spiced licorice, bitter chocolate, black fruit, chocolate pudding, crushed rock, peat, smokey teabag and gunpowder unite within this weighted and somewhat recessed example. Sexy amalgamation of richness defined by great balance, positioned acidity and lengthy tannins. The incredible mid-palate weight provides an excellent length of intensity and considerable nuance of flavour pursues.

Critical Acclaim

WS 97
Wine Spectator

Velvety and terrifically focused, this delivers a laser beam of blueberry, boysenberry and plum, with hints of allspice and pepper that mingle effortlessly as they come shooting across a bed of very fine-grained tannins. Lingers enticingly for a long, long finish. Drink now through 2020.

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Syrah Liandra Vineyard is also precocious but with a bit more complexity than the Baker's Gully.

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Glass-staining purple. Powerfully scented nose displays sexy red and dark berries along with smoky bacon, pungent herbs and incense. The smokiness carries onto the palate, which offers sweet black raspberry, cassis and candied violet flavors. Suave cola and vanilla notes arrive on the long, strikingly fresh finish. Very elegant wine, and delicious right now.

Clarendon Hills
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.

One of the most iconic regions of Italy for wine, scenery, and history...

One of the most iconic regions of Italy for wine, scenery, and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simply to complex and age-worthy, as well as in price from budget-friendly to ultra-premium, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano trailing far behind. Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines are produced in their respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Bolgheri, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, with the hillside locations hosting the best vines, as Sangiovese ripens most efficiently with maximum exposure to sunlight.

Sangiovese at its simplest, often carrying a regional designation of Chianti or just Italy, produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright red fruit and not much more, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity. In top-quality Sangiovese-based wines, expressive notes of sour cherry, balsamic vinegar, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise, tobacco smoke, and cured meat fill the glass. Brunello in particular is sensitive to vintage variation, performing best in years that are not too hot and not too cold. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, or Syrah, often grown in Tuscany’s Bolgheri region, with or without Sangiovese. These tend to be big, bold, and modern in style, often with noticeable new oak, and sold at super-premium prices.
