Winemaker Notes

A dark center with a garnet rim. The nose shows lots of Barossa chocolate, dark plum and hints of violet. It is a wine with good fruit complexity which draws upon the attributes of each variety in the blend: Shiraz gives richness and fruit, Merlot adds a textural softness and the Cabernet Sauvignon with its firm tannins reins in the fruit to give a wine of flavor, balance and structure.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 89
Australian Wine Companion
The first few releases of Clancy's (many years ago) caused quite a stir, but now it fights for territory among thousands of similar wines. However, this wine doesn't lose the battle; its palate is medium-bodied, with good red and black fruits, the blend is synergistic and satisfying. The precise blend is 50% shiraz, 34% cabernet sauvignon and 16% merlot.
WS 88
Wine Spectator
Supple, silky and appealing for its dark berry and spice flavors. This picks up licorice notes on the expressive finish. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2013.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as 1860. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, purple juice.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
