Eden Road The Long Road Syrah
Located within Murrumbateman in the now prestigious wine region of Canberra District, comes Eden Road who are well known for cool-climate, elegant style wines. Here their 'The Long Road' Syrah is actually sourced from vineyards that are both within the Canberra District and other nearby regions, like Hilltops. The result is a Syrah that is lifted in both aroma and flavours of ripe red cherries and strawberry. 14 months in older French oak has also provided a subtle savoury note with extreme elegance.
Mr Riggs Piebald Syrah
This wine, a Piebald, meaning black and white, is a co-fermentation of the blackest Syrah grapes, with a hatful of the purest white Viognier. Deep in colour, the wine is almost black, yet is also vibrant and bright. The nose is perfumed with apricots, spice and liquorice; a pretty, fragrant wine with a sweet juice and velvety palate. The finish is elegant with savoury spice and a fine tannin length and persistence.
Stonecroft Serine Syrah 2014 Hawke's Bay
This wonderful Stonecroft Serine Syrah shows a deep ruby red colour with a bright purple rim. The perfumed nose exudes fruity aromas of boysenberry, redcurrant and cherry, with subtle chocolate and spice nuances lurking in the background. The lush and lively palate packs flavours of rich black fruits, pepper and sweet spices, that culminate in a smooth and captivating climax. This delightful Syrah has a cellaring potential of 4 to 6 years, and tastes marvellous with Asian duck and Middle Eastern lamb dishes.
Helen's Hill Estate Hill Top Single Vineyard Syrah
The fruit used to craft Hill Top Syrah was handpicked, de-stemmed and crushed into open top fermenters to extract maximum colours and tannins from the skin. After being aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, this elegant Syrah features a deep ruby red colour with purple-crimson hues along the edges. The attractive bouquet exudes juicy aromas of stewed plums and spicy cedar oak, which intermix with rich plum and mulberry flavours on the vibrant palate, to culminate in a long, sweet and lingering climax. This wonderful red wine tastes great with various food items such as beef, pork, cured meats and parmesan cheese.
Brackenwood Vineyard Syrah
Adelaide Hills shiraz at its finest. Elegant but intense. Red fruits and a savoury core. Medium bodied with a bright, long finish.
Coates The Syrah Syrah, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek
Plush and velvety, The Syrah is Duane Coates entry level wine, made with the same care and attention as his top bottlings. Winemaking is strictly hands off and the wine is matured in a proportion of new French oak barriques with the remainder seasoned, imparting structure and complexity well beyond its price point.

Spinifex Barossa Syrah
"There's only one word to describe a wine such as this: delicious - perhaps with a swear word or two to add emphasis. Its flowery, fragrant bouquet leads into a juicy red berry palate with rivulets of flavour skipping across the palate and into the fresh finish. You can cellar the wine for a decade if you wish, but I can't imagine it will ever be better than it is now." Rated 95 points. James Halliday Wine Companion, January 2017.
Maison Barboulot Syrah
This wine is balanced, with a smooth structure, a round palate and a juicy profile. A slightly oaked wine with a lingering finish.
Salomon Estate Wildflower Syrah
Black cherry with a dense, tight structure and plentiful tannic heft. Peppery and herbal on the palate, but still very compact for its vintage. Seems to have some acetic influence on the nose too.
