Clarendon Hills Shiraz Blend Clarendon Astralis 1997
Nearly perfect, the 1997 Astralis (100% new French oak) is an explosive wine that represents the essence of Shiraz. The opaque purple colour resembles a young vintage port. The nose offers up blackberry fruit intermixed with freshly melted asphalt and pepper. My notes read, “beyond wine”. The wine is dry, but possesses unreal unctuosity and richness. This super-endowed offering will be at its finest between 2001-2020. This wine is a crowd-pleasing, exotic offering that takes the level of richness and hedonism to sensational heights. This wine is worth trying if only because of its compelling purity, opulence, and explosive richness.
Clarendon Hills is a small family run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. With a philosophy to convey variety expression at an ultimate level, hand performance of every task ensures each step of the process is exacting to specification. Making wine in an old-school, low technology fashion - each decision bases the sight, smell, taste and interpretation as its mechanics.
