Estate Notes

Clarendon Hills' Astralis is the flagship of Clarendon's Shiraz range.

Clarendon Hills, situated 25 miles south of Adelaide, was established by Roman Bratasiuk in 1989, and in little over ten years the estate has risen to the forefront of the Australian wine industry.

Its rapid rise to stardom can largely be attributed to low-yielding 70-year-old vines and Roman's aim  to make the highest quality wines the world over. Grapes are hand-pruned and hand-picked, and wines are matured in imported Burgundian barriques and bottled without fining or filtration to capture the individual vineyard character. A timeless wine of unbridled power and purity, the Grand Vin attracts global attention as the ultimate expression of Clarendon Hills' greatest vineyard. It hails from primordial old bush vines established in ancient rocky ironstone in 1920. Today, Astralis is recognised alongside the world's most iconic wines, and rated amongst the top 100 wines of the century. 

Reviews

"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Astralis Vineyard Syrah displays alluring aromas of creme de cassis, blueberry preserves and marmite toast with undercurrents of lavender, smoked meat and pepper plus a whiff of anise. Medium to full-bodied and tightly knit in the mouth, it has a great backbone of firm, finely-grained tannins complemented by lively acid and a long finish.” Wine Spectator
