    Burge's top Shiraz is no longer designated |Reserve,| but is blended into the |Premium| Draycott cuvee. The rich, full-bodied, dense purple-colored 2000 Premium Shiraz Draycott emerges from a vintage that is not as highly regarded as the 2001 and 2002. The 2000 is a lavishly concentrated effort offering aromas of sweet blackberry jam intermixed with acacia flowers, pepper, and spicy new oak. Aged in equal parts French and American oak, it is opulent, full-bodied, and pure, with an impressively layered texture. Already gorgeous to drink, it should evolve for 7-8 years, possibly longer.

  • More than half of all Australian wine production takes place in the South Australia region—home to the Shiraz-specializing Barossa Valley as well as revered Riesling zones Clare Valley and Eden Valley. South Australia is too large and diverse to generalize about climate or topography, with both cooler coastal areas and warmer inland sections—but rainfall is generally low throughout and drought is a constant concern.
