Winemaker Notes

"This is a thick, ripe Aussie red in which you can stand up a fork. The bold blackberry, vanilla, black pepper and dark earth flavors are not about finesse or elegance; this is stick-to-your-ribs stuff. Best Buy."
-Wine Enthusiast

Colour: Deep red with purple hues.

Bouquet: Berry and pepper fruit aromas with spicy oak characters.

Palate: Rich berryand pepper fruit flavours typical of this classic variety. Subtle oak treatment was used to add palate complexity and length. A soft, smooth dry red.

Serving Suggestions: Best with full flavoured foods especially red meats, pizza and pasta dishes.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Tatachilla, McLaren Vale, Australia
Tatachilla Winery has grown from a background as rich and diverse as any in the history of winemaking in Australia. While the Tatachilla of today was launched in 1995, the origins of the winery and the name go back as far as the early 1900's. Tatachilla's unique blend of grape growing regions, techniques, people, cultures and history helps create a range of red, white and sparkling wines that are as distinctive as they are enjoyable. Tatachilla is a wine ready to be enjoyed with good food and good company right now. However those who would cellar it for several more years will be rewarded for their patience.

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.
