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 »
