About The Wine

The Pyrenees is a fine region for growing Shiraz.

When executed well, the wines show wonderful spicy aromatics and dark, rich fruit flavours - all of which this release Quartz Hill shows in spades.

It was rated 94 points from James Halliday and 93 points from Campbell Mattinson.

An excellent example of Shiraz from this part of the world, and solid value to boot.

Reviews

Critic Reviews

94Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Machine-harvested, wild-fermented, matured in French oak (30% new) for 18 months. A medium-bodied shiraz of considerable finesse and length, with some Grampians-like character in its make-up. Spice and cracked pepper on the bouquet also come through on the red and black fruits of the palate; the measurement of the tannins is truly bespoke, the oak also perfectly integrated." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

93Points
The Wine Front

"It’s medium- to full-bodied with berried flavour aplenty and rounds of pepper spice. Violet and eucalypt-like characters add lift, but the overwhelming impression is of well-ripened plum and blackberry fruit, offset by classy/spicy/undergrowthy tannin. It rises beautifully in the glass; the quality of the fruit here is exemplary." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
