    Winemaker Notes

    The warmer 2001 vintage was ideal for McLaren Vale Shiraz, allowing the fruit to easily and steadily attain its full ripeness. The result is a Shiraz deep red in colour, displaying rich, ripe berry notes on the nose. Exhibits ripe blackberry and plum fruit flavours, a result of 18 months maturation in a combination of both American oak (predominantly) and French oak.

    Drinking very well now, full in flavour, with good structure and length and will continue to develop those wonderful fruit and oak characters over the next 6-8 years.

    Sylvan Springs, McLaren Vale, Australia
    Sylvan Springs is a boutique winery nestled in the heart of the McLaren Vale region, producing a small but premium range of wines. Their commitment is to consistently produce wines of the highest quality.

    Owned and operated by a fourth generation vigneron, David Pridmore is expanding on his family tradition in the local wine industry, which dates back to 1892. It was then that the family first established a vineyard in the heart of McLaren Vale.

    The Sylvan Springs label is the result of a formidable and enviable combination of premium quality fruit and the exceptional winemaking talents of Brian Light. Only the very best fruit from 45 hectares of premium fruit is retained for the Sylvan Springs label and Brian's extensive knowledge, experience, and success are well known in the industry. These factors, combined with the latest in winemaking techniques, are all an integral part of the foundation on which Sylvan Springs is built.

    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 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.
