The Astralis vineyard produces the prestige cuvée of Clarendon Hills, and is one of the most sought-after wines in the world. Technically remaining the same since the conception of the estate in 1990, Astralis made its debut under that name in 1994. Previously known simply as Clarendon Hills Shiraz, Roman and his wife Sue felt that the wine deserved a name more befitting of its excellence - Astralis, "pertaining to the stars".

 

Clarendon Hills is blessed to be surrounded by a plethora of fantastic terroirs from which to source grapes, but Astralis has proved year-after-year to be one of the greatest on Earth. At a mere 4 hectares in size, the land is precious and production levels are very limited. As is to be expected from a winemaker guided by Burgundian philosophies, all the vines in Astralis are low yielding, yet again restricting supply. Barely 500 cases are produced each vintage - no great amount given the shocking demand.

 

Astralis was planted in 1920 and is composed of a topsoil layer of pebble-ridden clay with a subsoil of pure ironstone. These 100 year old vines grow on a gentle due-east facing slope and are now "farmed as they grow", meaning that Roman does not trellis them.
