About the winery

Based in Australia, R Wines produces wine from vineyards all over Australia including Riesling from Western Australia, Pinot Noir from Victoria, Shiraz from McLaren Vale and the Barossa just to name a few. R Wines was founded in 2005 by partners Dan Philips, and Chris Ringland. Chris is one of world's leading and most gifted winemakers. He leads teams of winemakers and viticulturalists managing vineyards Australia wide. R Wines that make it to the shelf are not merely sound and well-made, but are stylish, compelling, hand-crafted and peerlessly delicious. We believe that what goes on the bottle is as important as what goes in the bottle and work with world-class designers to create innovative, loud, brilliant labels that speak to consumers in ways unique to the wine world. The best Grenache in the world is in Australia. The Chateau Chateau project is a study of the effects of soil and place. Five icon vineyards and one blend with distinct expressions, soils and locations in the Barossa and McLaren Vale. There is no illusion, this project includes the world's best Grenache.

Consumer Reviews - Luchador Shiraz 2006

Tom Burnakis  Vinostar - from 151 reviews    Jacksonville  (United States)
**** Very good 
Wrestle with this
Dark red/purple wine with loads of fruit on the nose and palate. There are also hints of cinnamon and coffee on the tongue along with all the black and blue fruit. Smooth tannin, long finish. This wine is somewhat overwhelming for most food and probably is best drunk with a strong meat and sauce (barbecue) or alone. It is not as syrupy as some of the Aussies are, but it is not a subtle wine at 15.5% alcohol. Still, at $17 it is hard to beat.
