Background

Roman Bratasiuk, with a background in bio-chemistry produced his first vintage in 1990 - he is now considered by experts as one of the world’s top winemakers. The winery is located just 40 kilometres outside Adelaide, where vines have been planted since 1845 - Roman produces 19 single vineyard wines and they are all 100% varietal. The grapes are all hand-picked and pruned – wines are matured in Burgundian barriques and bottled without fining or filtration to capture the individual character of each vineyard. Roman set out to make world class wines…he has accomplished that goal.

Tasting Notes

"Cola, dried spices, menthol and blueberry notes all appear on the nose of the 2014 Astralis Syrah. A massive yet approachable wine, it's full-bodied and creamy-textured, with a rich, velvety finish that picks up awesome savory notes of anise, cracked pepper and roasted meat. It's simply a terrific wine that may be drunk soon or held up to two decades." Robert Parker 97 points.
