  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    Coming from Chris Ringland's tiny home vineyard of ancient Shiraz vines in the Eden Valley/Barossa Ranges, the 2007 Shiraz has a deep garnet-black color and is intensely scented of baked plums, Christmas cake and earthy, meaty notes with suggestions of incense and exotic spices. The very big, richly fruited and full-bodied palate is multi-layered with dried berry and baking spice flavors, plus a touch of leather. It has great length, yet the tannins are just a bit astringent and it finishes a little hot.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

    Plush, rich and brimming with personality, this offers a kaleidoscope of plum, blueberry, cranberry, smoke and balsamic flavors, set on a generous but well-modulated chassis. Lingers enticingly on the long and expressive finish. Drink now through 2025. 200 cases made.

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.
