2015 Paxton "AAA" Shiraz-Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia (Biodynamic) (Elsewhere $22)

96 points James Halliday: "A 65/35% blend, matured in French barriques. A Shiraz-Grenache that only McLaren Vale can provide: complex, rich and layered, black and red fruits providing a mosaic of flavours on the medium+-bodied palate. The tannin and oak management can't be faulted — it's a lovely wine at a bargain basement price." (4/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Aaa Shiraz Grenache has a lifted nose of black cherries, black raspberries and star anise with hints of dried Provence herbs and roses. Medium-bodied, soft, juicy, ripe and infinitely more-ish (makes you want m ...Read More »

2015 The Opportunist Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Peter Leske, the original winemaker at Nepenthe who bought that winery and renamed it Revenir, has partnered with Fergal Tynan and Giles Cooke, both MWs and both directors of Alliance Wine in the UK. Together, their projects include Thistledown and One Chain in South Australia, their goal to emphasize freshness by picking just prior to peak ripeness rather than after. They sourced fruit for this shiraz from Langhorne Creek, presenting a wine that’s light and just luscious enough to surround all of its spicy, cumin-edged acidity in sour-cherry and plum-pi ...Read More »

2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $18)

93 points Wine & Spirits: "A modern take on an old-fashioned style of Eden Valley Shiraz, this is bold in flavor but not at all massive - more about stamina and grace than density and weight. Its flavors of red currants, jasmine and tar have forthright power, a zesty blast of Shiraz spice that leaves a clean, fresh taste in its wake. This performs far above its price, a wine to buy by the case and enjoy this winter into spring." (2/2017) 90 points Vinous: "Deep, lurid ruby. Ripe dark berries, cherry pit and a hint of licorice on the smoke-tinged nose and in the mouth. Shows good depth and gentle sweet ...Read More »

Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering spice-laced, concentrated black and blue fruit flavors and subtle notes of candied licorice and menthol that build in the glass.

It makes you wait with so much delicious promise being drip fed into the mouth at first-and then it bursts forth and delivers! This vintage is a blend of 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, coming from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Magill Estate.

This wine has depth and length, and is very good value." 90 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Aromas of dried cherry and blackcurrant, with a hint of smokiness emerging as the wine opens with air.

Medium to full-bodied, opulent and densely packed with black fruits and savory layers, it has a solid frame of rounded tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long." 91 points Decanter: "Though it bears the Kalimna name, this is a multi-regional blend from the McLaren Vale, the Barossa Valley, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Robe.

A wine that creeps up on you, the aftertaste a final hurrah." 95 points James Suckling: "A lighter, more pure and elegant expression from Shaw & Smith in 2015, this has bright cherry compote and fresh cherries - not to mention spiced strawberries, pastry-like and biscuity savory notes, gently peppered meat and all sorts of other complexity. ...Read More »

2013 Jacob's Creek "Two Lands" Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia

Full disclosure here... I have always considered Jacob's Creek as more of a big grocery store brand and haven't often carried the wines at K&L. However if there is one thing I've learned being a wine buyer it's to always be prepared to change your opinion and to let your palate do the decision-making. I was quite simply blown away by the value for the money this Cab delivers.

2013 Yalumba "The Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A classic blend of Cabernet and Shiraz, this is cedary and complex upon opening, easily mixing cassis, plum and blackberry with vanilla and baking spices. On the palate, it's dense and concentrated yet slightly reserved, suggesting rather than screaming its potential. A long, mocha-tinged finish wraps things up, combining dusty tannins with mouthwatering acids. Drink 2020–2030+." 93 points James Halliday: "The alcohol may be modest, but that's where this line of enquiry ends. It's powerful, it wears a Driza-Bone and RM Williams boots, and isn't prepared to debate this characterisati ...Read More »

2015 Langmeil "Fifth Wave" Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "93+ pts Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Grenache Fifth Wave is redolent of kirsch, raspberry tart and red currant jelly with hints of garrigue, Chinese five spice and red roses. Full-bodied, opulent and full-on gorgeous in the mouth, it delivers buckets of rich, red, spicy fruit with velvety tannins and a refreshing line, which carries off the long finish. LP-B" (8/2017) 92 points James Halliday: "Strawberry, raspberry and cherry bon bon fireworks abound, singed by wood smoke and briar. Spindly tannins and some acetone acidity confer a sense of direction, reason and energy. Best ...Read More »

2004 Shirvington Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The sensational 2004 Shiraz’s inky/purple color is followed by aromas of graphite, blueberries, and creme de cassis. It offers wonderful purity, plenty of stuffing, toasty espresso notes from new oak barrels, admirable intensity, and a tremendous finish. Drink it over the next decade. Former winemakers Sarah and Sparky Marquis have left Shirvington and the wine is now being made by Kim Johnston. Little has changed, although the 2004s appear to be more streamlined and delicate than their 2003 and 2002 counterparts." (10/2005) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark purple. Ripe blackberry an ...Read More »

2013 Yalumba "The Menzies" Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia

93 points Decanter: "The Menzies vineyard, which was purchased by Yalumba in 1993, has Cabernet clones planted which were specifically chosen to produce a less minty character than many other Coonawarra Cabs. This wine has a cedar, leather and black fruit nose and a really juicy, spicy palate. There's a slight tang reminiscent of autumnal hedgerow fruits, as well as a hint of menthol in the background. The tannins are fine-grained and well integrated, framing the multi-dimensional fruit, spice and oak finish. Drinking Window 2017 - 2028" (8/2017) 92 points James Halliday: "Powerful wine with blackcurran ...Read More »
