    "18 months in new and used French and American oak. 100% shiraz this time around. A consistently solid performer, and this is another good release. Plenty of ripe, dark plum and blackberry to be found, with some clovey spice, mint, and a dash of pepper. Full bodied but neither sweet-fruited nor aggressively tannic, it's good to go now, or cellar."

Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Victoria

The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.

There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.

Pyrenees

Just two hours outside of Melbourne, the Pyrenees wine region is spectacular piece of countryside. The rugged foothills and untamed ranges at the southern end of the Great Dividing Range offer top-notch winemaking conditions, as well as some incredible scenery.

A total of 44 vineyards are tucked into the Pyrenees, taking advantage of the range of microclimates among the hills. Although it's primarily known for its spicy reds, the region also produces world-class chardonnays and sauvignon blancs.
