Winemaker Notes

This wine forms part of Clarendon Hills' 'Village' wine classification.

Young vines are used to produce this energetic and exuberant syrah. Simplistic and honest, this cuvee boasts elementary varietal depth and light complexity. It is best consumed within the first 15 years of life.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

The 2005 Syrah Bakers Gully offers fragrant aromas of smoke, bacon, tar, mulberry, and blueberry compote. Perhaps the most forward of the Syrah selections, it can be enjoyed in its youth but should drink well through 2020.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Dark and juicy, with a layer of clove and black olive weaving through the blackberry and tar flavors, lingering on the refined finish. The tannins are well-integrated. Best from 2009 through 2015. 500 cases imported.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Full in body and lush in texture, the 2005 Bakers Gully Syrah boasts exuberant aromas of fruitcake, followed up by flavors of brandied cherries, blueberries and blackberries. The long finish features hints of cracked pepper and licorice. Drink now-2015.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Opaque ruby. Liqueur-like blackberry and cassis on the nose, with cured tobacco, espresso and candied licorice accents. Weighty dark berry flavors display almost syrupy concentration, with mocha, vanilla and floral pastille accents. This is almost too much of a good thing, and Old World drinkers may recoil from this. But there's improbably good structure and focus here too.

Clarendon Hills is a small family-run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. The company was founded by biochemist, Roman Bratasiuk, in 1990. The story of Clarendon Hills is one of passion, dedication and commitment to exception wine. It all began when this biochemist and wine lover decided to produce his own wine. Though he'd never trained as a winemaker, Roman let himself be guided by his refined palate and scientific knowledge. Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.
