Winemaker Notes

Black, deep midnight purple. Liqueur coffee edge with ‘Black Kat' licorice, tobacco leaf, lifted spicey leather, sweet earthiness and Kalamata skin. Superb clarity and brightness of traditional elements expected in a classic Australian Syrah. Black fruit and savory components mingle on a weighted, meaty structure. Expressive, bright characters are counter-weighted by restraint exhibited in this elegantly positioned and lineated example.

Critical Acclaim

JH 96
Australian Wine Companion

A medium-bodied wine, with fine, fresh, almost slippery/juicy red fruits the main game in the mouth, but with darker notes in the background; fine tannins and a super-long finish.

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Big, supple and remarkably graceful for its size, with hints of cream, cedar and clove around a core of blackberry and pomegranate flavors, all coming together on a seamless finish. Has impressive length. Drink now through 2020.

The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Syrah Baker's Gully is very perfumed with lots of up-front fruit. It can be enjoyed in its youth.

ST 92
International Wine Cellar

Inky ruby. Youthfully brooding dark berries and cherry-cola on the nose. Suave oak spices and licorice develop with air and carry onto the palate, joining sweet, vaguely bitter cassis and plum flavors. Bitter chocolate and cracked pepper notes linger on the sappy, clinging finish. I went back to this a few times and a strong floral quality came up that reminded me of the northern Rhone

Clarendon Hills
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.
