($47) Full medium red. Wild aromas of red berries, leather, smoke, truffle and pepper. Sweet, lush and gamey, but with sound acids framing the concentrated candied fruit flavors. A note of cranberry adds aromatic lift. Finishes sweet and long.

About This Producer


Owner Roman Bratasiuk shows a devotion to the simple tenets that yield some of the best Shiraz fruit grown in Australia. From the flagship Astralis vineyard, he hand-harvests fruit from over 75-year-old dry-farmed vines and allows the indigenous yeasts to work their magic. The resultant wine is unctuous and viscous, yet harmonized, and expresses those elements which define the essence of great Shiraz - black fruit, bramble, super concentrated cassis and spice, undercurrents of tobacco, coffee and licorice root.

Clarendon Hills also produces wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Semillon.
