The Real Deal Well Priced
Crayford Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015
Region: Barossa Valley, South Australia
The winemaker Benjamin Parker has done a brilliant job with this Barossa Shiraz. That we can drink such riches for such a modest sum shows how blessed we are as wine consumers. For good reason Barossa Shiraz is the most important wine made in Australia. Shiraz of course thrives in the Australian climate and is associated globally with the country.
Historically the first regions cultivated were in the warm climates though it was not till the 1950s that the real significance of warm climate Shiraz began to be recognised.
As vintage passed to vintage it was in turn apparent that regions like the Clare Valley, Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale were blessed with some extra climatic influence which lifted the resulting wines above the pack. As the decades role on it will be much more than Penfolds Grange that shines in the Worlds market place. Back home today however you can drink this remarkable Shiraz at a most agreeable price.
