Richly aromatic nose of violets, black plum and blueberry on this full-bodied Australian Shiraz. So juicy and smooth on the palate. Perfect for roast beef and big meat dishes.

Ahhh.... Barosa SZ. Fully aromatic with classic berries dominating along with beautiful vanilla oak. Dryer than some Aussie SZ without being too dry for SZ lovers. A touch of warmth lingers along with pure fruit and fresh cut oak kissed by smoke. A great value.
|Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Classical blackberry + pepper nose of Australian Shiraz. Fruit explosion in the mouth with a finale long because of the alcohol. Fun wine. Would be great with a good old-fashion grilled steak.
|Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This is a nice and spicy shiraz - lots of black cherry, raspberry and black pepper. Good acidity and medium-high tannin to balance it all out. Perfect for peppered steak!

Barossa is famous for the wines produced in its red clay soils. This is a great example of a quality and good value wine that the area can produce. Full bodied but elegant. Aromas of blackberry and blueberry, tobacco and spice. Medium plus tannins and acidity. Still a bit young - I would recommend aerating if drinking now or put away for a few years. The first pairing that comes to mind is a medium-well hamburger topped with some blue cheese! Tasted May 31, 2016.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Impressive nose of blackberry, cherry, plum, mint/nettle/eucalyptus and more on the palate with smoke and spice added. Grippy tannins and some serious alcohol balance out the fruit, but will probably mellow out a bit in a year or two, if you wish to put a couple of bottles aside. Drink now with big beef :)
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Lots of blueberry and black cherries on the nose, along with some leather and pepper. Long finish, soft tannin. Great with a marinated flank steak.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of black plum, black cherry, violets and leather. Flavours are black cherry and blueberry. There's medium-high acidity and a little bit of young-ish tannins, all combining to give it a nice rounded, full bodied mouth-feel.
|Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Pretty, youthful purple. Intense blueberry and tree fruit. Light floral in the background. Crisp acid great tannins. Long finish of spice and fruit. Would pair with a variety of foods or good on its own.

Aussie Shiraz is in a league of its own and the Barossa Valley Estates Shiraz is a great example of value priced high quality Shiraz you can get from this storied region. A silky smooth first impression backed with refreshing acidity and a nice supply of fine tannins make this a great choice for BBQ pairings and equally enjoyable on its own. Tasted May 2016. 89 points. Matt Steeves
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby, plummy, stewed fruit with a sweet confected note. Soft and plummy with blueberry, ripe fruit, medium bodied with good acidity and drying greenish tannins.
Try cellearing for a few years or pair with venison chops with a blueberry sauce. A little primary at this stage for my taste. 87+

Blueberry, blackberry, chocolate, black pepper, eucalyptus, tobacco, and smoke aromas. Medium full bodied, with medium tannins and medium high acidity. The alcohol is slightly hot.
