  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 78

    Strongly gamy, with rich cherry and spice that doesn't quite get past the barnyard notes.
    Author: Harvey Steiman
  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

    The most backward and potentially longest lived of this trio is the 2003 Shiraz Draycott, a blend of 86% Shiraz, 10% Grenache, and 4% Mourvedre. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a classic bouquet of licorice, blackberries, plums, and vanillin. Full-bodied, dense, concentrated flavors judiciously marry the finesse school of winemaking with the exuberant, powerful, Barossa style. Boasting beautiful depth, precision, and equilibrium, it will benefit from another 1-2 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 10-15 years.

  • 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.
