Clarendon Hills Bakers Gully Syrah opens with intense aromas of roast meat, black cherry and licorice. The palate is elegant yet full of vibrancy with a long, aromatically scented structure. Velvety tannins and a balanced acidity ensure immediate satisfaction.
94 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"Full crimson-purple; in mainstream Clarendon Hills style, medium- to full-bodied, with obvious French oak on the bouquet and running through the textured palate; spicy black fruits and a touch of licorice make the running; alcohol and dusty tannins have been held in restraint."
92 Point Rated - Jeremy Oliver
"One of Australia’s iconic producers, Clarendon Hills marches confidently to its own drum, crafting deeply flavoured, profoundly structured and often rather savoury and Old Worldly reds from shiraz and grenache from a variety of sites in the higher Clarendon subregion of McLaren Vale. Each are made and bottled separately, so a new vintage tasting of Clarendon Hills wine will take more than half an hour! It’s also home to some steadily improving cabernet sauvignons and some slightly idiosyncratic Mourvèdre and Merlot. The winery’s two top red wines, the Astralis Syrah and the Romas Grenache, easily justify their 5-Star status. The Domaine Clarendon Syrah is an exciting and relatively new project that should gain more standing and status as the vineyard matures. I love the ambition and attitude behind Clarendon Hills. It’s pushing the envelopes of style and quality, and it’s spectacular when it succeeds."
Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Bakers Gully Vineyard Syrah presents aromatic red currant and red cherry notes intermingled with suggestions of green peppers, earth and bark. Full-bodied with a medium to firm level of slightly astringent tannins, the lively acid carries through a long, slightly herbal finish. Approachable now, it should drink best to 2020+. "
This is Roman Bratasuik's entry level Shiraz intended for early drinking sourced from younger dry grown vines. Maturation takes place in French oak (85% new) for a period of 18 months.
