The Clarendon Hills Liandra Syrah opens with intense aromas of bacon fat, licorice and chocolate. Deep undertones of blackcurrant and powerful spices offer dimensional contrast. An amalgamation of richness is defined by great balance, positioned acidity and lengthy tannins. The incredible mid-palate weight provides an excellent length of intensity and considerable nuance pursues.
95 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"Dense, deep, purple-crimson; has the weight, depth, textural complexity and flavour richness typical of Clarendon Hills, but no other maker. Fruit, oak and tannins are welded together in a seamless stream that will grace any red meat dish. The lack of coarse extraction is remarkable."

"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Liandra Vineyard Syrah reveals expressive aromas of mulberries, black cherries and wild blueberries with hints of soy, yeast extract and baking spices plus a whiff of rose petals. Full-bodied and showing great poise and intensity in the mouth, it has a wonderful core of red berry and spice flavors framed by medium to firm levels of rounded tannins and lifted acidity through a long finish"
93 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."
Clarendon Hills are vineyard and varietal expressionists who strive for purity and perfection and seek to portray the story of the individual vineyard 'Terroir' within their wines. Clarendon Hills’ collection of the old vine vineyards in sub-regions of McLaren Vale assists in defining their international pedigree for making world class wines that rate extremely highly among the international press. Among the 9 single vineyards of Syrah is the Liandra vineyard which is located within the Blewitt Springs sub region of McLaren Vale, South Australia. All of the wines at Clarendon Hills are made by hand and are crafted using only natural processes and ingredients.
