Winemaker Notes

The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Coppermine Road vineyard owned by Tony Delisio. Ross describes the grapes as "awesome" and they were picked on March 1, crushed and then fermented for 7 days. When the wine reached 1 beaume it was pressed out and put into new American Hogsheads with a medium toast and allowed to ferment to dryness. Malolactic fermentation was induced and 4 weeks later the wine was racked of gross lees and adjusted. It was racked 3 more times and blended with a bit of Shiraz from the neighboring Coriole vineyard.

The wine exudes a lively bouquet, complex yet complete, with abundant fruit richness. The palate is fruit driven showing a subtle underlay of vanillin oak and a soft fine-grained finish.

Hazyblur, McLaren Vale, Australia
Hazyblur Wines is a small boutique winery established in 1998 by Ross and Robyne Trimboli. We crush less than 100 tonnes of grapes per vintage. With each vintage Ross takes personal control of all winemaking procedures. each individual barrel recieves his attention.

Ross's winemaking background dates to watching his father, an Italian immigrant to Australia, anually make wine using a basket press and rubber boots.

Ross started experimenting, using his own winemaking techinques, making batches of wine with friends. After completing a winemaking course in 1996, Ross decided to get a bit more serious about it all.

Returning from a wine tasting trip through Coonawarra, driving in a car with not air-conditioning at the end of a long hot day, Ross noticed a mirage like haze over the vineyards. It was HAZYBLUR....

the rest as they say... Cheers Ross & Robyne

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, as are ripe, tropical-fruited Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

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.
