  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($70) Saturated dark red. Sweet black raspberry and spicy white pepper aromas with a hint of dark chocolate. Juicy, round and very sweet, with concentrated raspberry and kirsch flavors. The very long finish displays fine, dusty tannins.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Fine, generous, brimming with cherry, blackberry and toasty spice flavors that keep swirling on the firm, seamless frame, lingering effortlessly as they fill the mouth without excess weight.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    The dark ruby-colored 2003 Grenache Old Vines Clarendon Hills exhibits a big, sweet nose of kirsch liqueur, raspberries, dusty soil, pepper, and herbs. Consume this full-bodied, corpulent Grenache over the next 5-6 years.

  • 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.
