  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    Saturated deep ruby. Compelling aromas of cassis, black cherry, violet, currant leaf, espresso and bitter chocolate. Spicy, sweet and dense; at once powerful and quite suave thanks to its superb balance of elements. The cassis flavor outlasts the firm but ripe tannins, with the fruit building slowly and subtly on the aftertaste.

  • 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.
