Wine Critic Reviews:

Spawned from a trial of French oak first made in 1997. Deep, vibrant colour; the bouquet is very expressive, speaking of a legion of black fruits, licorice, plum and spice, none of which prepare you for the sheer power of this amazing wine and its untold depths...

Country Australia: Australia (especially its Southern region) is one of the most influential and developed New World wine regions. Its unique set of terroir profiles lets Australian winemakers create innovative, expressive wines using many classic varietals. All the French essentials are seen here, along with Riesling. The diversity and variety among Australia's most excellent wines make the region incredibly exciting to explore, especially if you're in the mood for a pleasant surprise or two. Let the land speak to you from within the bottle and find your horizons broadened, and your perspective changed forever as you fall in love with wine all over again.
Producer Penfolds: Ah, Penfolds - one of the finest New World wineries according to many connoisseurs. There's something primal and wild about the landscape down under, and wines like these really tap into that elusive force. Their versatile and strong output makes them a popular choice among collectors, and they're showing no signs of slowing down on their journey to compete with the world's finest wineries. Whether you fancy a potent red or a playful white, Penfolds has your interests in mind. Their whites are intense and flavorful, with delightful notes of white peach, sharp grapefruit, and earthy, spicy flint taking center stage on your palate. The reds are rich, intense, and deep, boasting strong flavors of generous plum, creamy black cherry, and a healthy dose of black pepper.

Region Barossa: Located some 36 miles northeast of Adelaide, Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest and best-established wine regions. Even as the rest of Australia moved towards Cabernet Sauvignon and its varietal table wines, Barossa Valley's winemakers stubbornly continued to develop their style based around the varietal Syrah. Sure enough, they ended up receiving international recognition, helping to improve the reputation of New World wineries everywhere as a very strong competitor on the viticultural scene. The signature Barossa Shiraz style emphasizes flavors such as rich, opulent chocolate and sharp spices that linger in your mouth long after you've finished your drink. The perfume is very pleasant, and the texture of the wine offers a lot of complexity and subtle nuance, ripe for analysis and conversation. This makes Barossa Valley bottles excellent for when you have another wine aficionado visiting your home. A worldly, diverse collection just wouldn't be complete without a classic Australian Shiraz, and Barossa Valley is your best bet at obtaining a truly extraordinary bottle. To help you make your choice and bring you closer to an uplifting, emotional experience, we've assembled a selection of excellent Barossa Valley bottles. These are a surefire way to create memorable evenings with the people you care about the most.
Type of Wine Australia Red: Australia is one of the New World's most innovative and reputable regions, and a sip or two of their glorious red wines can quickly explain why. Infused with the essence of noble grapes such as Shiraz, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, these reds will take your senses on a thrill ride.
OWC No
Varietal Shiraz/Syrah: Syrah, or also commonly known as Shiraz is one of the darkest thick and full-bodied wine filled with aromatic hints of blueberry, blackberry, and some spicy peppery notes. Primarily grown in France, you can easily find a bottle throughout Australia, Spain, Italy, Chile, and Argentina.
