Note the 'Syrah', not 'Shiraz' – a clear sign of a more elegant incarnation of this grape. It's from St Hallett, a legend amongst Aussie wines with some of the finest vineyards in Oz. Hence the superb pure black fruit, floral and spice pepper notes.

Founded by the Lindner family in 1944, St Hallett is a legend among Aussie wineries and boasts the top Halliday rating. Syrah in the wine's name is a clear indication that winemaker Helen McCarthy is aiming for a more elegant, northern Rhône style, rather than the more usual bold Barossa Shiraz. The grapes come from four sites in the Eden Valley, a region with vineyards up to 500 metres, so the climate is cooler and its wines fresher and more aromatic. Each parcel is fermented separately, at a lower temperature to capture the sappy freshness of the fruit, then aged 9-12 months in French oak to lend a delicate weave of oak spice to its pure fruit. A delicious fine red. Open early and serve with beef en croûte, lamb or aubergine parmigiano.

"Blackcurrants, cherries, raspberries, violets, cloves and chili chocolate. Full-bodied, bright" James Suckling
