Clarendon Hills 'Astralis' Syrah 2002

Quick Overview

Clarendon Hills' "Astralis" Syrah is one of only twenty-one wines rated as 'Exceptional' in the Langton's Classification

 99pts - Robert Parker - 'The Wine Advocate'

"The 2002 Syrah Astralis Vineyard rivals the greatest wines Roman Bratasiuk has made in his 15-year career. This compelling, black/blue-hued offering from 75-year-old Syrah vines tastes like blood of the vine. An extraordinary perfume of flowers, creme de cassis, blackberries, roasted meat, new saddle leather, & earth is followed by a wine with sweet tannin, sensational concentration, full body, an unctuous texture, & a full-throttle, tannic finish. Yet it reveals unbelievable elegance & finesse. Too many Euro-centric elitists argue that Australian wines are too rich & over the top, but all of these offerings have been made by someone with great talent & vision who takes the extraordinary ripeness & purity of fruit available from these old vine vineyards & crafts them into wines that are quite European in style ... just richer & denser. The 2002 Astralis is a tour de force." - Robert Parker
