Benchmarking regional and subregional influences on Shiraz fine wines

The sensory properties of Shiraz wines from regions across Australia will be determined to identify the attributes associated with typicality from the regions. Typicality and regionality of fine Shiraz wines will be identified using comprehensive sensorial profiling of a selection of wines chosen by an expert panel of winemakers. Specific markers of terroir will also be identified using a range of targeted and untargeted chemical analyses. In addition, an international sommelier delegation will sort a selection of premium Shiraz wines.
