Astralis is Syrah-based, made from c19th rootstock vines planted in the 1920s in Australia’s famous McLaren Vale region. Winemaker and former biochemist Roman Bratasiuk purchased the old Elysium winery at Blewitt Springs in McLaren Vale and from there has created an estate to rival the top Napa Valley ‘cult’ wineries. The low‑yielding, dry-grown, pre-phylloxera vines are grown in loamy, clay soils. The Astralis Vineyard is only 4ha in size, and is elevated on a 45-degree slope.

Clarendon Hills

Something of a maverick estate found in the heart of McLaren Vale, Clarendon Hills is a small but influential family-run winery. Today, we are delighted to offer a small parcel of their leading wine - the utterly perfect Astralis 2010. Founded by Roman Bratasiuk, a biochemist by trade, in 1990, Clarendon Hills is a pioneering producer of Australian fine wine. This legendary estate is still shepherded to greatness by this self-taught winemaker, whose obsession with the great wines of the world has seen him produce one of them! Deciding to focus on single-vineyard cuvées in order to convey the incredible terroirs available to him, Bratasiuk is determined to allow his wines to convey a sense of place. Thoughts of monstrously sweet, extracted, mass-produced Aussie Shiraz should be as far as possible from anyone's mind whilst considering Clarendon Hills. They are simply sublime expressions of varietal and regions. The 1994 and 1996 vintages are in the "Greatest 1000 Wines of All Time 1727-2006".
