A terrific all-purpose variety that grows well just about everywhere. Cooler climates are more peppery and warmer climates richer and more generous. The primary fruit characters are spice, cinnamon, raspberry, dark cherry, mulberry, blackberry, black pepper, plum and chocolate. Secondary characters are mocha, coffee, prune, meaty, savoury and leather. Our Distinguished Sites series of Leston Shiraz from Margaret River and Scotsdale Shiraz from the Great Southern are superb examples of regional differences from these two grape growing regions of Western Australia.
