A multi-layered, fruitful, spicy and delicious wine from Australia.
Country: United States
About This Wine:
It was back in 1996 that “South Eastern Australia” was officially recognized as a wine region. Aussie wines were exploding in popularity. The area spans the southeastern third of Australia, including all of New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory.
The area demonstrates huge diversity in topography, climate and latitudes. This makes possible the growing of a great number of grape varieties, and has enabled Shiraz — a.k.a. Syrah — to emerge as the country’s leading red variety.
By blending juice from a number of acclaimed South Eastern Australia vineyards, the Dreamtime vintner was able to craft a quintessential rendition of the variety. With floral notes, fruitful flavors and even a hint of chocolate, it’s an absolutely delicious wine. The 2021 vintage is reminiscent of the Shiraz bottlings that made the variety so famous.
