  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($55) Good medium red. Superripe aromas of red berries and game. Fat, sweet and lush, with red fruit flavors along with suggestions of dried fruits. Not quite as precise as the Clarendon grenache but spicy and sweet.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

    Firm, chewy, dense style packs a lot of dark ripe berry, cherry and tar flavors into a taut package. It's not heavy, just tightly packed. Needs time to let it all unfurl.

    The 2002 Grenache Old Vines Blewitt Springs Vineyard exhibits candied cherry, kirsch liqueur, pepper, and licorice scents along with a Chateau Rayas-like raspberry component. Full-bodied, opulent, and rich, with seamless integration of acidity, wood, and tannin, this medium to full-bodied, gorgeously elegant, intensely flavored 2002 is strikingly complex as well as showy.

  • 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.
