THE VARIETY

Shiraz

Shiraz's origins are in the vineyards of northern Rhône Valley where it is known as Syrah. In 1832 James Busby, a Scottish viticulturist, brought with him varieties of Syrah to Australia. Now commonly grown in France, Australia and Spain, Shiraz variety differs in taste region to region. Generally, though, the grapes produce medium to full-bodied wines with medium to high levels of tannins, as well as notes of blackberry, mint and black pepper. A perfect wine for a barbeque, hearty stews, or strong cheeses.

 

THE REGION

Yarra Valley

The Yarra Valley was Victoria's first wine growing district with a history stretching back 170 years. Today the region is recognised as one of Australia's foremost cool climate regions. Such a climate, coupled with sandy loam and rocky clay sub-soil, the region makes classic styles from a wide range of varieties, like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz.
