Winemaker Notes

Pour this wine into a big glass and let the white pepper and spice swirl on the nose. With time you'll get flowers, fresh earth, fennel leaf and bright red fruit. A very pretty start. The palate is bright and fresh too, red licorice mixes with more spice and pepper dusted mulberries. The tannins are fine and talc-like, laced with minerals and nice length. This wine is all about fragrance, balance and elegance.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 95
Australian Wine Companion
From the Blewitt Springs subregion, the 18-year-old vines youngsters, but already providing high quality grapes. This is the coolest of the subregions, endowing the wine with a fragrant bouquet of dark fruits merging with the red on the palate; that has a fine structure built on classy tannins, the end result a wine with effortless power and drive.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black in color, the 2010 The Bamboo Scrub Single Vineyard Shiraz has heady notes of chargrilled meat, tar, anise and violets that overlay an aromatic fruit core of black plums and cassis. Medium-bodied and packed with earthy and meaty black fruit flavors, it is supported with a medium to firm level of grainy tannins, crisp acidity and a long finish. Drink it from 2014 to 2023+.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Dense and plush, with ripe raspberry and blackberry fruit playing against smoky, savory notes. Comes together on the refined finish. The tannins show some bite, but the flavors emerge easily enough.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This is a meaty, dark-fruited Shiraz. Seductive notes of caramelized beef and brown sugar dominate, while the wine's texture is a bit coarse, turning astringent on the finish.

d'Arenberg, McLaren Vale, Australia
Image of winery
One of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and Rhone varietals, d'Arenberg has managed to turn individuality into an art form by doing a whole lot of little things differently. The original vineyards were established by Joseph Osborn in 1912 in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. A century on, the estate has grown to 345 acres, and the mantle now rests with fourth-generation winemaker, Chester Osborn. By maintaining a focus on traditional winemaking and nurturing their old-vine material, the Osborn clan has successfully established themselves as one of the country's leading producers of concentrated wines that are full of character.

McLaren Vale

View all wine

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône blends with Grenache and Mourvèdre, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract and alcohol with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style. Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah accounts for a good deal of some of the most intense, powerful and age-worthy reds in the world. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah still achieves some of its maximum potential here, especially from Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie.

Syrah also plays an important component in the canonical Southern Rhône blends based on Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, adding color, depth, complexity and structure to the mix. Today these blends have become well-appreciated from key appellations of the New World, namely Australia, California and increasingly, with praise, from Washington.

In the Glass

Syrah typically shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper and even bacon, smoke or black olive. In Australia, where it goes under the name Shiraz, it produces deep, dark, intense and often, jammy reds. While Northern Rhône examples are typically less fruity and more earthy, California appears increasingly capable of either style.

Perfect Pairings

Flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb, grilled meats, spareribs and hard, aged cheeses are perfect with Syrah. Blue cheeses are perfect with a dense and fruit-driven Australian Shiraz.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” winemakers throughout the world have adopted this synonym for Syrah when they have produced a plush and fruit forward wine made in the Australian style. As an aside, Australians are also fond of tempering their fruit-forward Shiraz by blending with Cabernet Sauvignon, which adds depth and structure.
