Winemaker Notes

Viscous in concentration and mouth feel but progressive in respect to character illumination, it has presence and aristocracy but sadly requires many years to develop and emerge. Recommended cellaring for a minimum of 15 years and enjoy for 50.

Critical Acclaim

RP 98
The Wine Advocate

The exquisite 2006 Syrah Piggott Range is more structured yet. Thick, dense, and tightly wound, all the components are there for future greatness. Only patience is required.

V 95
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Opaque purple. Surreal bouquet of red and blue fruits, incense, suave oak spices and fresh flowers: you could wear this but you'd attract wine geeks like flies to a steamy dog turd. Supple black raspberry and mulberry flavors cover the palate and are gently framed by velvety tannins. Shows more shape with air and finishes with energetic berry skin and subtle vanilla notes. This is utterly seductive today.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Dense, ripe and distinctly minty, this fleshy Syrah bursts with blackberry and spice flavors, with the mint persisting into the long, focused finish. Hints at coffee as the finish persists. Best from 2010 through 2020.

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.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
