  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($45) Ruby red. Exotic aromas of blackberry, smoked meat, vanilla, mocha and candied licorice. Fat and velvety in texture, with impressively sweet dark berry and plum flavors retaining energy and precision through the finish. Tannins are fine-grained. As in most recent vintages, an intriguing, sexy wine. (The Grateful Palate, Oxnard, CA)

    One of Australia's most traditional winemakers, Colin Kay fashions old style, high quality, distinctive Australian reds. Tarry, chewy, and fleshy, the 2003 Shiraz Hillside has a bit more punch (15% alcohol) as well as a sappy character that is not present in the regular bottling. It is a broad, savory, expansively flavored, full-bodied Shiraz to enjoy over the next decade.

  • 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.
