    Winemaker Notes

    The wine presents beautiful light amber hues. The nose id powerful and ripe, marked by black fruits and a touch of dark chocolate. The toasty vanilla notes obtained from the barrels are elegant and fine, offering a perfect balance with the fruit of the wine. The mouth is rich, concentrated, warm and mellow finishing on gentle tannins.

    Quinta do Carmo, , Portugal
    Quinta do Carmo
    Almost 200 km east of Lisbon and less than 40 km from Spain, Quinta do Carmo is situated in the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, in the beautiful Portuguese region of Alentejo. This ancient estate had belonged to the Portuguese royal family and greatly benefited from the help of King Don Joao IV, who made substantial improvements more than 200 years ago. For many generations the Bastos family has owned the Quinta and has contributed a great deal to its expansion.

    Today, Julio Bastos continues its fine tradition of winemaking and is further developing the quality of its wines. That is why, with the same idea in mind, the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) have decided to actively participate in this enterprise by acquiring 50% of this wine-growing property in 1992. If the wines of Quinta do Carmo are already extremely well-known in their country of origin, the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) have paved the way for them to reach an international market.

    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. Some of the oldest vines in Australia can be found here—in the cooler, wetter Eden Valley sub-region, the Hill of Grace vineyard is home to 140+ year old Shiraz vines.

    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 where they may benefit from cool breezes, particularly in the Eden Valley.

    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.
