Professional Reviews For This Wine

Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17.5

I loved this dense, exciting wine that is thoroughly enveloping in its thick, ripe, Willunga fruit but also manages to have lift and life to it too. No excess of sweetness.A much more comfortable and comforting drink than the 2004.

Gift from FBC Mitolo GAM Shiraz 2005 £20.70 x2 An excellent Aussie shiraz with loads of blueberry and vanilla flavours. As the world’s top wine critic says "this is a tour de force in winemaking".

Another thick and rich Australian shiraz. I particularly liked this wine. It had great fruit and balance but was not overdone. Dark in color and subtle but yet marked alcohol content led to nice integration that complemented our meal.

Wine Varietal: Syrah

While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
