About This Wine:

Nestled in the rugged Clarendon hills of McLaren Vale, Domaine Clarendon Syrah vineyard stands as a testament to winemaker Roman Bratasiuk's vision. Planted in 2003 with cuttings from the renowned Astralis vineyard, this 36-acre site spans a dramatic landscape, cascading into the ancient Onkaparinga Gorge. Here, amidst some of McLaren Vale's oldest geology, single-staked bush vines reach for the sky, reflecting the terroir with remarkable intensity.

At 7 feet tall and non-cordon trellised, these vines evoke the spirit of the northern Rhone, producing wines of profound pedigree. From graphite to black olive, each sip unveils a symphony of flavors, underscored by blueberry plum fruits and a silken texture. This cool-climate enclave, perched on the border with Adelaide Hills, exudes natural acidity and spice, embodying the essence of Clarendon.

This vineyard is more than a collection of vines; it's a canvas upon which the ancient story of McLaren Vale unfolds. With its breathtaking views and cool climate allure, Domaine Clarendon Syrah vineyard invites you to taste the rocks and embrace the magic of terroir.

After spending 18 months in a carefully curated hierarchy of tightly grained French Oak, this wine emerges from the winery unadulterated, bottled with no fining or filtration. Full-bodied yet exquisitely refined, it now embodies a captivating stage of evolution. Its once-vibrant black cherry and plum core has matured, gracefully intertwining with McLaren Vale's signature earthy licorice and charcuterie nuances.

The finale is a testament to its finesse: a silky, elegant glide punctuated by a latent power that speaks volumes. Poised and sophisticated, this wine transcends expectations, offering a fresh perspective on South Australian Shiraz/Syrah.
