Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Jay Miller - The 2006 Shiraz was barrel-fermented and aged for 14 months in 85% new oak, with the barrels 90% American and 10% French. Saturated purple in color, it reveals a splendid bouquet of smoke, pencil lead, bacon, grilled meat, and blueberry. Supple-textured and opulent, this full-bodied Shiraz offers a range of spicy, complex flavors, superb balance, and enough well-concealed tannin to support 5-7 years of additional cellaring. This hedonistic Shiraz should drink well through 2026. Shirvington’s proprietors are Paul and Lynn Shirvington and the winemaker is Kim Jackson. Two wines, a Cabernet and a Shiraz, are produced annually from estate vineyards that are now 20 years of age.

Additional Information

Varietal :
Shiraz
Also known as Syrah in Australia and South Africa, Shiraz makes intense, deep wines with plenty of spice, fruit and alcohol. It thrives in warm climates, and is widely grown in Australia, California, and the Rhone region of France, where it makes Cote Rotie and Hermitage, and forms the backbone of Chateauneuf du Pape.

Sub-Region :
McLaren Vale

One of the most richly varied and highly developed areas in Australia, McLaren Vale produces intensely-flavored, deep red wines and powerful white wines. Due to varying exposure to the cooling influence of the nearby ocean, there is substantial climatic variation in the region. Chapel Hill, Rock Bare and Mitolo are just a few of McLaren Vale’s fine wineries.

Region :
Australia

With the sixth largest wine industry in the world, Australia exports over 100,000,000 gallons a year. Climate conditions vary widely across Australia's many wine regions, creating ideal growing conditions for all of the Vitis vinifera varieties as well as "alternative" varietals like Tempranillo and Viognier, which are gaining popularity. Shiraz (Syrah) is the country's signature grape and the primary ingredient in Australia's most  famous wine Penfolds Grange, which critic Robert Parker compared to Bordeaux's famous Petrus.  Australian winemakers are know for their innovation, pioneering many viticultural techniques that they ritually share with their Northern Hemisphere-brethren during off-season travel.
