"The fitting capstone to what was a terrific vintage for Clarendon Hills, the 2015 Astralis Syrah is destined to become a McLaren Vale legend. Remarkably precise, complex and pristine aromas of anise, pepper, mint and blueberries lead the way. They're followed by a full-bodied yet impeccably ripe palate that's dense and concentrated yet supple, leading into a velvety, nearly endless finish. Wow."


Joe Czerwinski, RobertParker.com, September 2018


"Lifted, charismatic and offering waves of youthful primary concentration and savoury complexity evolution in the glass right from the first moment of impression. Notes of game, roast meat, olive tapenade and pure blueberry quickly begin to nuance crushed rock and flinty characters, while a deeply recessed, brooding sense of sheer power and racy pungency is but a silhouette of its potential./ Hedonsitic.


Deeply recessed layers of smokey bacon fat and blueberry mingle with cigar tobacco, subtle Asian spices and lavender in what is a very delicate yet an unusually approachable palate style. Highly polished yet deeply recessed tannin hint toward an ultra fine boned structure with density and concentration of character. Savoury complexities like cherry skin, black olive and jasmine tea are magically folded away like origami within the fine boned structure, laced with natural acidity"
