Barossa Valley Wines
The Barossa Valley is an extremely important wine-producing region in Australia associated with powerful Australian Shiraz wines. The best Barossa Valley Shiraz wines have a reputation for being rich and extremely full-bodied with great aging potential. There are of course other varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling, Grenache and Mourvedre that produce great Australian wines. Viognier is also well represented, but mostly in small portions in blends with Shiraz.
Shiraz (Syrah) Wines
Syrah is a dark-skinned grape variety originating from Rhône Valley, France. In Australia the variety gained a distinct personality and is known as Shiraz. Syrah wines are famous around the world for their peppery earthy notes alongside hints of blackcurrant, licorice, tanned leather and smoky scents. The best authentic Syrah red wines are to be found in the northern part of the Rhône Valley followed by some excellent examples from California, Oregon in the US and Australia.
