SXS Shiraz-Grenache 2008 S. Australia (Step-Four)

Step X Step Shiraz Grenache image
So, I got a chance to check out the SXS Shiraz(Syrah) and Grenache blend, and for the record, I'm not a big fan of Australia, at least in the past few years, I've not found too many that have tickled my taste-buds, but there wines are finally starting to open me up a bit. This wine is one that has started the change of my opinion. So let's get into my tasting notes.

Nose :It has a medium plus intensity, ripe strawberry, white pepper. Notes of sour rasberries, pencil eraser rubber, some vanilla and bright rose petals.

Palate: This is a dry wine that starts fruity and finishes with slightly bitter tannins. Ripe strawberry, mixed in sour rasberry rounded off with white pepper, medium plus body, medium plus finish. Good acid, good mid palate, medium plus alcohol but the wine maker hides it well.

Verdict: For the record, in the past, I have not been a Australia wine fan, but as of late I've had a few bottles that are making me reconsider my opinion. This bottle is one of them, It has great pure fruit, long finish and has a spice factor that I like. Pick it up, really, I mean it, pick it up. Peace.


  1. I write a comment whenever I appreciate a post on a site
    or I have something to contribute to the discussion.

    It is triggered by the fire displayed in the article I
    browsed. And after this article "SXS Shiraz-Grenache 2008 S. Australia (Step-Four)".
    I was moved enough to create a comment :) I do have a few questions for you if
    you do not mind. Could it be just me or does it look like
    some of these responses come across like they are coming from brain dead individuals?

    :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to keep up
    with everything new you have to post. Could you list every one of all your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  34. I think what you said made a bunch of sense. But, think
    about this, what if you added a little content? I am not suggesting your information is not good, however what if you added a post title to
    maybe get folk's attention? I mean "SXS Shiraz-Grenache 2008 S. Australia (Step-Four)" is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and note how
    they create article headlines to grab people to click.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about everything've written. Just my opinion, it might make your website a little bit more interesting.
