The Sutton Grange Ram's Horn Block Syrah is a powerful expression of one of the original plantings of Sutton Grange Shiraz. This particular block, located directly opposite the winery in Bendigo produced a wine of impressive magnitude from the excellent 2012 vintage. This is the gorgeous Sutton Grange vineyard at it's best. This was rated 96 points by James Halliday. His emphatic review opens with "Big but exquisite. No caveats or qualms: this is a beauty." which should give you some indication of the wine style. It's muscular, complex and thoroughly riveting drinking.
What it Tastes Like
"It puts on a ribald show but it has substance. Plenty of it. This is a great wine to spend an evening with. It’s rich with blackberry, anise and plum but it’s also liberally smattered with dried herbs, peppers, leaves. Tannin is firm but flavoursome. It’s savouriness served Double Whopper sized." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
96 points. "Big but exquisite. No caveats or qualms: this is a beauty. Violets, anise, blackberries and assorted peppers and spices. It's bold, it's integrated, it's firm, it's ready for anything." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion) 95 points "It puts on a ribald show but it has substance. Plenty of it.

Ram’s Horn is our expression of the single block of Syrah grown on the property directly opposite cellar door (planted in 1998). This is a slightly cooler block of Syrah as it faces south and produces wines that have detailed and fine tannins.

Long held up to the rest of the world as Australia’s flagship red variety, the mighty Australian Shiraz has undergone something of a renaissance over the past two decades. While our robust styles of Shiraz from powerhouse South Australian regions such as the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale may have put Australian wine on the map, Shiraz from our cooler regions are giving the variety a new look. Wines from Canberra, all parts of Victoria, the Adelaide Hills, and the Great Southern, are all delivering wines of finesse and spice set to a lighter framework. The tapestry of Australian Shiraz is richly diverse, and will only continue to develop and mature into the future.
