Shiraz from Australia- this wine is big and bold, yet well rounded. Deep purple hue, hints of berry, peppery with spice notes and leather. Lots of tannin. This Shiraz will drink well young but benefits from extended aging. Hide a few bottles for down the road.

Due to the popularity of Australian wines this grape is now probably better known to most wine drinkers as Shiraz, however in France (its original home) and most growing regions of the world it is still known as Syrah. While largely a blending grape in the Rhone region wines of France, most other growing regions feature Shiraz on its own. Look for nice berry flavours with a lively spiciness- very enjoyable.
Australia is a 'New World' growing region that made Syrah more famously known as Shiraz. Australia started the trend of producing single varietal wines featuring grapes traditionally blended by ‘Old World’ winemakers. Typically full bodied wines with good fruit.
