About

Aside from a small Jimmy Watson-shaped blip on the radar, Tasmanian Shiraz has hardly captured the wine world’s imagination. With wines like this gorgeous 2013 Moorilla Syrah though, that is sure to change.

In fact, it was the 2005 vintage of this very wine that supposedly inspired Nick Glaetzer to produce the Shiraz that took the country’s biggest wine prize a few years back!

It comes from Moorilla’s own St. Matthias vineyard in the Tamar Valley, and is the embodiment of quality cool climate Shiraz or Syrah. The warm and dry 2013 vintage has only added to what is always an impressive drop.

It has fragrant perfume and savoury spice galore but also with, as Huon Hooke pointed out in his glowing 95 point review, “plenty of charming fruit-sweetness in the mid-palate - which isn’t common in Tasmanian shiraz.”

It’s a beautifully poised, elegant and complex wine, and a must try for lovers of the style.

What It Tastes Like

“Deepish red/purple hue, with a superbly fragrant, spicy, clove-accented aroma. The palate is medium-to-full bodied and smoothly textured, with attractive mouth-feel and soft tannins adding a really fine sheen of texture which balances and cleans the finish. There is plenty of charming fruit-sweetness in the mid-palate - which isn’t common in Tasmanian shiraz. A superbly crafted wine.” - Huon Hooke
