Ray Jordan, WA Wine Guide 2021 "Powerhouse Shiraz from an outstanding year. Deep, spicy, dark plum with dollops of chocolate. The palate is a maze of intricate workings with gravelly, loamy textures, savoury oak and tarry licorice. The dry, savoury tannins help to focus the palate while the oak holds it even closer. A wine for the future."

Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Real Review "Impenetrably deep and purple, The nose is inky and closed at the moment, but with air it reveals itself more. Plum, mulberry, pepper, and exotic spices like clove and aniseed meet the nose in suave harmony, and a mouthful follows those cues in a medium-bodied, seamless wine that builds across the palate to a very long, grippy finish."

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "Densely packed with flavour from every angle, this is seriously silky, seriously flavoursome and very long. An impressive wine which leads with red forest fruits and closes with the same. The acid and tannins are thick as thieves. A beautiful wine."

James Suckling "This top-tier shiraz is very complex and delivers so much spice on the nose and palate. Dark berries, flurries of red fruit and plenty of chocolate here. Smoothly layered tannins fan out and drive plenty of fresh fruit flavor. Big, spicy crescendo at the finish."

Robert Parker "...shows all the muscle, density and spice that we can expect from the subregion. This is excellent, with notes of spiced and poached blood plums, raspberry, red licorice, layers of aniseed/clove/fennel, blackberry and dark cocoa. The tannins that frame it are pliable and firm—it's part of what makes the Great Southern so great for Shiraz."

James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion "Cool climate shiraz at its best, with a highly expressive mix of warm spices and cedar threaded through the medium-bodied array of dark cherry, plum and blackberry fruit flavours. The lithe mouthfeel and texture of the wine set it apart from its white siblings." (2017 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Deepish red colour with a trace of purple in the rim. The bouquet is plummy and white-peppery; definite cool-grown shiraz aromas. The wine is intense and medium to full-bodied, powerful and driving, with a whole spice-cupboard of flavours roaring through the bold, pristine palate. An excellent, high-toned, cool style of shiraz. " (2017 vintage)

Western Australian winery, Plantagenent is acclaimed internationally for its consistently highly-awarded, quality wines produced from its five vineyards located in the cool climate region of the Great Southern. It is known for its highly aromatic riesling, tangy citrus-tinged chardonnay, exceptional Rhône-style shiraz and suberb cabernet sauvignon. The five estate vineyards are overseen by Chief Viticulturist Jordan Ellis whose philosophy is sustainability and remaining true to the terroir of the region.

The Real Review "Plantegent is a pioneer of the Great Southern region of Western Australia with vineyards first planted in 1986 and the first commercial winery established in the region. Celebrated for its rich heritage, the winery is owned the Lionel Samson family, the oldest family owned business in Western Australia established in Fremantle in 1829. Plantaganet has five vineyards in the Mount Barker sub region each with the unique characteristics, ancient soils and a cool maritime climate cretaing expressive wines of provenance, quality & prestige. "

James Halliday, Halliday Australian Wine Companion "Plantagenet has honed its flagship varieties into a distinct Great Southern wine style; a depth of lively flavour, seamless elegance and natural purity"

The Great Southern is emerging as a wine region of international significance and reputation. It is the largest wine growing region in Australia and is the second largest producer of grapes in Western Australia. It is a landscape of forested cliffs and resplendent mountain ranges, grazing pastures and towns steeped in history. The regional climate ranges from the coastal, maritime subregions of Albany and Denmark to the inland, continental subregions of Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River. The predominant soils are similar to those of the Margaret River region - either lateritic gravelly sandy loams (marri country) or sandy loams deriving directly from granite and gneissic bedrocks. Near perfect conditions for grape growing has lured some of the most creative and talented winemakers to call this land their home and become part of its ancient story.

Shiraz, also known as Syrah is a popular red wine. Though the spiritual homeland of this red grape is France, Syrah has been planted throughout the world to great success. It expresses itself differently depending on the climate, soil and regional style.

Syrah is typically bold and full-bodied, with aromatic notes of smoke, black fruit and pepper spice. Stylistically, it can be round and fruity, or dense and tannic. And in warmer New World regions like Australia, Syrah is most often be called Shiraz.

Winemakers who work in cooler-climate growing regions, both in the Old World and New World, tend to call their wines Syrah. The most famous examples come from the northern Rhône Valley of France, notably Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. In the New World, in regions like Sonoma Coast, California; Yarra Valley, Australia; and parts of Chile, the wines are called Syrah because they emulate the leaner, acid-driven, savory styles of the Old World French classics.

Shiraz tends to come from warmer growing climates, namely the South Australian regions of Barossa, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills. Stylistically, these wines are lush, fruit-forward examples that embody the warmer, sunnier climate. Shiraz is so important to Australian viticulture that it is the most planted grape variety in the majority of Australian vineyards and has become virtually synonymous with the country's wine regions, and in particular the Barossa Valley.
