2014 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

96 points James Halliday: "From old vineyards in Krondorf, Marananga and Eden Valley, open-fermented with submerged cap (header board), matured for 15 months in French oak (35% new). Succulent, rich and powerful, with predominantly black fruits and some spice. The hallmarks are its supple mouthfeel and effortless balance." (10/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editor's Choice* Dark berry and plum fruit dominates, but hints of mint, vanilla and cedar add interest.

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Barossa Valley Shiraz reveals pronounced blackberry, dark chocolate and black currant notes over hints of black earth, charcoal, licorice and a hint of violets.

2013 Glaetzer-Dixon Family Wines "Mon Pere" Shiraz Tasmania

96 points James Halliday: "As remarkable as it sounds/seems, this label makes shiraz in Tasmania look easy. This is a top-notch wine in anyone's language. It's cool climate by nature but mostly it's exquisitely well polished. Peanuts, licorice, bright cherries, cloves and a wide assortments of spices. It all unfolds slowly, magically, inexorably. Quite mesmerising." 94 points James Suckling: "Plenty of sweet biscuity spices on offer in this rare Tasmanian shiraz, this has bright raspberry and red plum fruits on the nose, some musky florals and fine-ground peppery elements too. Good complexity. The palate deli ...Read More »

2013 Rymill Shiraz Coonawarra (Previously $30)

The colour is bright crimson-purple through to the rim, the bouquet and palate bringing spice, pepper and French oak to the party; it is medium-bodied, its black cherry and blackberry fruits with fine-grained tannins and a reprise of the oak."

2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia New! Top Pick!
2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia

93 points Wine & Spirits: "*Best Buy* 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."

Great intensity and balance in a rather modest medium-full body with great graininess to the tannins and plenty of freshness. It finishes long. Note that no 2011 Cluster M45 was produced.

It's a fresh, vigourous red with anise, raspberry, squishy blackberries and wood spice notes ramping the appeal up high. It'll age but there's no real reason to wait."

2013 Hentley Farm "The Beast" Single Block Shiraz Barossa Valley

It is, of course, full-bodied, and doesn't have the fluid grace of the other Hentley Farm '13 Shirazs. It is indeed a beast, but will repay those who put their faith in the high quality corks used by Henley Farm."

Half of the fruit is from the Eden Valley and half from the Barossa, and the wine spends 18 months in French oak (20% new). An exotic bouquet of blackberries and other sweet fruits is followed by a full-bodied, powerful, rich red with great purity as well as focus, a laser-like precision, huge intensity, and a blockbuster finish that lasts nearly a minute.

While it possesses tremendous purity as well as an enormous full-bodied texture, it is neither heavy nor overbearing. This stunning Shiraz may be even better than the 2002 Savitar. Time will tell. Barrel samples of three 2002s revealed tremendous potential in what appears to be the finest efforts Mitolo has yet produced.

(10/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Shiraz Moppa (a blend of 85% Shiraz, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Viognier) has a youthful nose of crushed black cherries, black plums and blueberries with hints of licori ...Read More »

2007 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining ruby. Exotically perfumed bouquet displays scents of raspberry, cherry-vanilla, sassafras, Asian spices and sandalwood. Juicy, mineral-laced red and dark berry flavors gain power and structure with air, picking up notes of anise, allspice and clove. The spiciness extends through a very long, sappy and gently sweet finish. Built to age but offers a lot of complexity right now. (JR)" (9/2009) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet in color, the 2007 Amon-Ra is a little flat on the nose with dusty earth, kirsch and leather notes fused with dried berries, sandalwood and s ...Read More »

2013 Wirra Wirra "RSW" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "The continued refinement of the flagship wines from Wirra Wirra is evident in the 2014 RSW. Darkly coloured and darkly fruited, the palate is finely poised with grainy, slatey tannins saturated in blackberry-laden fruit, the finish long, savoury and extremely fine." (3/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-black in color, the 2002 Amon-Ra offers black fruit and plum pudding aromas with whiffs of coffee, nuts, licorice and a touch of game. Full-bodied and tightly-knit in texture, it has medium-firm, fine-grained tannins, and excellent concentration through the long, spicy finish. Drink it now to 2018+. (LPB)" (02/2013)

2008 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Dense purple-crimson; the bouquet is redolent of black fruits and licorice, the full-bodied palate a masterpiece of winemaking, rich and thickly textured on the mid-palate, then slimming down on the finish, with savoury notes inviting the next glass." (1/2010) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2008 Amon-Ra opens with profound aromas of black berry compote, baking spices, smoked bacon with a whiff of anise and some fertile loam. The palate is full-bodied and concentrated with very full and rich warm berry flavors lifted by very lively acid. The tannins are m ...Read More »

2013 Langmeil "The Freedom 1843" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points Vinous: "(raised for two years in French oak hogsheads and barriques, two-thirds of them new): Inky ruby. Heady, assertively perfumed scents of fresh black and blue fruits, incense, vanilla and smoky minerals, with a suave floral topnote building in the glass. Oak-spiced blackberry and boysenberry flavors unfold slowly, picking up spicecake and cola nuances on the back half and staining the palate on the sweet, supple finish. Velvety tannins sneak in late to add grip. (JR)" (3/2016)

2003 Shirvington Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2003 Shirvington Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (96BC, 96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The big, concentrated yet velvety-textured, magnificent 2003 Shiraz reveals a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, wood, and alcohol, it boasts aromas of blackberry liqueur intermixed with violets. The fragrant aromatics are followed by an explosively rich, full-bodied, unctuously-textured, compelling Shiraz. Interestingly, this 2003 does not appear to be quite as powerful or concentrated as the 2002s or 2001s, but that’s like splitting hairs. The evolution of this 2003 will be fascinating to follow.

2002 Fox Creek McLaren Vale Reserve Shiraz (Previously 60)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar and listed at $74: "Medium ruby. Ripe, vibrant and nicely focused aromas of crushed blackberry, blackcurrant, basil, exotic incense and vanilla. Dense and thick, with round, supple flavors of dark berries, creme de cassis kirsch, mocha and roasted meat. Finishes fat and creamy without losing its focus or verve." (Jul/Aug 05) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Meaty, burnt sugary aromas are deep. On the palate, tannins are chewy and red fruit is dressed up with coffee and mocha; coffee continues through the l...

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 »

1997 Torbreck "Run Rig" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1997 Torbreck "Run Rig" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (95RP, 95ST, 92JH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Run Rig is the most mature of this group. More evolved than the 1996 or the potentially perfect 1998, the 1997 displays beautiful floral, blackberry, charcoal, and incense characteristics, a full-bodied opulence, a seamless, voluptuous mouthfeel, and hints of caramelized black fruits and herbs. It is a beauty of complexity, elegance, and substance. Drink it over the next 5-10 years. Torbreck’s flagship wine, the Run Rig, is made from 40- to 120-year-old Shiraz vines with some co-fermented Viognier (usually around 3%), tips the scales between 14-15% alcohol, and is aged 30 months in French oak. In contrast to the way they taste upon release, neither the 1998 or 1997 Run Rig revealed any oak. (RP)" (06/2009)
