2015 Powell & Son Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia Top Pick!
2015 Powell & Son Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

This new project is essentially a distillation of all that went before: everything he has learned about the Barossa's vines, soil and climate, refocused into a small-scale, boutique operation where Dave is hand-making the wines with his son Callum. Powell & Son is about "getting back to basics" Dave says: starting with great vineyards, expressing the purity of fruit... Read More »

This is where the wine drinker really is the winner. It's thick with flavour but remains buoyant, even jolly, with life. Tannin too shirks no issues whatsoever. Barossa at its best."

It is, of course, full-bodied, and doesn't have the fluid grace of the other Hentley Farm '13 Shirazs.

Hand-picked, cold soak, 25% whole bunches, wild-fermented, matured in French oak (40% new) for 15 months. Sombre, earthy black fruits are so intense they momentarily stop the heart from beating. The texture and mouthfeel are such that they throw down the gauntlet to anyone seeking to drink more than a glass at this early (indeed far too early) stage of its life.

Made from 30- to 50-year-old vines, and aged 18 months in 100% new French hogsheads as well as smaller barriques, it boasts an opaque purple color, and an extraordinary nose of acacia flowers, blueberries, raspberries, and blacker fruits, melted licorice, and graphite. It possesses amazing intensity, great equilibrium, a fabulous, multi-layered mid-palate, and a blockbuster finish. This extraordinary Shiraz should prove to be one of the legends of southern Australia’s great 2004 vintage. (RP)" (10/2005) 96 points James Halliday: "* ...Read More »

1991 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia
Bid on this bottle of 1991 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia (96JH, 95RP, 95WS). James Halliday: "Medium to full red-purple; the usual array of richly luscious cherry, plum and black fruit aromas mingling with mocha and dark chocolate on the bouquet. The palate is as complex and structured as the bouquet promises; the tannins pick up early but are not overly aggressive, and run through a wine showing the full gamut of ripe, old vine Shiraz flavours. (Tasted 7/1996)"

2012 Torbreck "Run Rig" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Run Rig offers a nose of baked cherries and raspberry preserves with suggestions of violets, cinnamon toast, aniseed and vanilla. Full-bodied with characteristic elegance and poise in spite almost of its power, it has a solid backbone of very finely grained tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing with great length. (LPB)" (6/2015) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "RunRig is always complex, and the 2012 doesn't disappoint in that regard, mixing bacony-meaty notes with hints of black olives and ripe plums. The tannins are supremely supple, but the acids ...Read More »

1998 Veritas "Hanisch Vineyard" Shiraz Barossa Valley

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With both the 1996 and 1998 Shiraz Hanisch Vineyard incredible examples of Barossa Shiraz. Both are dense and full-bodied with soaring aromas of black fruits, damp earth, camphor, pepper, and asphalt. The 1996 is slightly more structured and tannic, and the 1998 is more perfectly formed with a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol, and wood (the latter component has completely disappeared at age eleven).

1996 Veritas "Heysen Vineyard" Shiraz Barossa Valley

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong argument can be made that that the two Shiraz cuvees ("Hanish" and "Heysen") are the top wines from Veritas. This wine, made from 30-year old vines that average 2.5 tons of fruit per acre, tips the scales at a whopping 15.1% alcohol, although you would never know it when tasting this super-concentrated wine. It is a killer Shiraz, with an opaque purple color, peppery, tar, sweet, layered, jammy blackberry fruit, hints of subtle new oak, and a massive, powerful, full-bodied finish that goes on and on. Still youthful, it promises to age easily for ...Read More »

1999 Chris Ringland Shiraz Barossa Range South Australia

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Chris Ringland (formerly known as Three Rivers Shiraz), is aged 42 months in 100% new French oak, and is rarely racked until bottling, represents an extraordinary expression of Barossa Shiraz. The intense 1999, released in 2004, demonstrates that this vintage is somewhat underrated after all the hype over 1998. From a vineyard planted in 1910, its inky/purple color is accompanied by aromas of lavender, lard, smoke, licorice, blackberries, cassis, espresso roast, chocolate, and pepper. Full-bodied, slightly less voluminous than the perfect 1998, with ...Read More »

2000 Chris Ringland Shiraz Barossa Range South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Also tasted and previously recommended, but no tasting note given.. In an earlier, 96-point review: This is a re-review of the 2000 Shiraz since I significantly underated it previously. It is clearly the Barossa wine of the vintage, and has put on considerable weight since it was bottled. This stunning cuvee, which used to be known as the Three Rivers Shiraz, was aged 33 months in French 300 liter hogsheads. A beautiful bouquet of crushed rocks, white flowers, blueberries, blackberries, incense, and subtle pain grille is follwed by a rich, full-bodied re ...Read More »

2000 Kay Brothers "Amery Block 6" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lighter than its 1999 or 2001 counterparts, the dense purple-colored 2000 Shiraz Amery Vineyard Hillside is spicy and peppery, with a floral (acacia flowers) note intermixed with melted asphalt, black cherries, blackberries, and currants. While ripe, full-bodied, and outstanding, it is a mere mortal compared to its younger and older siblings. (RP)" (10/2002)
