Top 10 Syrah Producers

And how they put their best work into each bottle


« Prev Next » 5 of 12

While some of the excesses of the past decade can be directly attributed to Australia, they are adept at moving with the marketplace. The wholesale shift in wine making styles of not only Shiraz, but also Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, leaves them poised to regain lost luster.

But some producers never diverged from their ideals. Penfolds has continued to turn out remarkably consistent wines as far as style goes right through the go-go nineties and ‘oughts. That might be due to Penfolds having produced one of the world’s benchmark Syrahs: Grange Hermitage. Grange is a wine that commands top dollar, but the Penfolds style and quality trickles down to their more affordable wines. St. Henri bottling is sort of a baby Grange, very pure and expressing the essence of Shiraz. I actually prefer it to Grange.

Think of it as the Evangeline Lilly of Syrah!
