Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($38) Bright medium red. Very ripe, roasted flavors of raspberry and strawberry. Fat, rich, sweet and mouthfilling; offers a bit less verve than the Kangarilla but this is still shapely grenache. Finishes with big, mouthcoating tannins and impressive sweetness and volume. This is the Dolly Parton of the Clarendon grenache bottlings, notes importer John Larchet.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

The dense plum/purple-colored 2001 Grenache Blewitt Springs Vineyard offers a heady concoction of red as well as black fruits, flowers, incense, balsam wood, and spice. On the palate, it is prodigiously thick, rich, viscous, and packed and stacked. Difficult to resist, this exuberant, full-throttle wine should be at its peak between 2004-2012.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Supple and generous, a lithe mouthful of subtlety spicy cherry, blackberry, sweet leather and spice character that lasts and lasts on the ultra polished finish. 500 cases imported.

About This Producer


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.
