Winemakers often choose to label their wines “Syrah” or “Shiraz” based on a stylistic
difference. Syrah wines are thought to be more similar to Northern Rhône reds (more refined & tannic) while Shiraz wines are similar to New World examples (riper, more fruit-driven & easily approachable).
The Muratie 2007 Shiraz was produced from three different vineyards on the estate, one dating back to 1975. These dryland vineyards with rich mountain soils are exceptionally well suited to yielding concentrated berries. This 2007 Shiraz is deep red in color with aromas of ripe fruits and floral subtleties. A sweet spiciness and light notes of caramel and vanilla balance out the full body and ripe tannins.
Wine Enthusiast magazine awards the Muratie 2007 Shiraz 92 Points and names it an Editor's Choice: “Assertive and intense with a dark cocoa, black cherry and violet nose, this wine is smooth, dark and mysterious. An elegant sultry wine...”
