2012 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $42) Top Pick!
2012 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $42)

96 points Decanter: "For me, the best edition of this well-crafted Shiraz. The nose is ripe and mellow, with layers of rich blackberry and plum. There's a wealth of spice and soulful, earthy depth and a smoky tarry edge too. The palate is smoothly honed, with a dense mid-palate that offers bright blackberry and plum flavors. Deceptively study tannins carry hauntingly throughout and merit considerable cellaring if you can manage to keep your hands off it! Drink 2018-2030." (6/2014)94 points James Halliday: "Warm at heart but with its eyes firmly set on savouriness. Sweet plum and vanilla meet notes of s ...Read More »

Powerful and focused, immaculate balance and length engendering elegance with its mix of black cherry, licorice and spice flavours. Delicious wine. 300 dozen made."

2012 Woodstock Estate Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $25)

94 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Deep crimson-purple; makes light of its alcohol, for while it is profoundly varietal and regional, it is light on its feet, and the chocolate-wrapped black fruits break free with airily juicy, yet spicy and savoury, flavours on the finish." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "The 2012 Shiraz shows a deep vibrant cerise colour with some youthful purple hues.

2012 Amelia Park Shiraz Frankland River Western Australia

94 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Deep crimson; it has a rich and vibrant bouquet of black fruits, spice and pepper; the 12 months it spent in oak also makes its presence felt, joining with the tannins on the medium-bodied palate to provide excellent texture and structure." (3/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "This wine has great richness of flavour, aromas of spicy cherry and plum and a soft fruit-driven palate delivering dark berries, liquorice and subtle tannins.

2012 Hewitson "Ned & Henry's" Shiraz-Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "The grapes were grown on Barossa Valley terra rossa: oxidised iron red soils over limestone, and the wine was matured in used French oak. The vivid colour of the wine attests to its moderate alcohol, as does the joyful display of red and black fruits; the tannins are supple, the oak subtle but evident. Fantastic value."

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple, the 2010 Cluster M45 Shiraz has lovely floral and herbal notes wafting over a solid core of youthful blackberries and black cherries with nuances of Chinese five spice and cloves. 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. (LPB)" (2/2015)95 points James Halliday: "Medium red-purple; while I remain to be convinced the baume (and hence alcohol) level was necessary, it is fair to say that the wine carries it without undue ...Read More »

2012 Innocent Bystander Syrah Yarra Valley Victoria (Previously $17.00)

Assertive aromas of dark berry preserves, incense and Asian spices, with a suave potpourri nuance coming out with aeration. Juicy, focused blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are given lift by tangy acidity and a hint of cracked pepper.

Winemaker's notes: "An aromatic bouquet of ripe fruits, cherries and blackcurrants, with notes of freshly ground coffee, dark chocolate, peppermint, liquorice and subtle pepper. Thick and smooth with good balanced fruit weight." Vineyard Sources: The Langhorne Creek fruit was harvested from two vineyards located on the Bremer River planted in rich very deep fertile river loam / silt and gravel.

2012 John Duval "Eligo" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Eligo has a profoundly scented nose of crème de cassis, blackberry pie, licorice, dark chocolate and blueberry preserves against an earthy/meaty background of bacon fat, forest floor, beef dripping and black loam. The densely packed, full-bodied palate manages almost paradoxical elegance and restraint with velvety tannins and lively acid giving closure to the long, multilayered finish.

2012 Yangarra Estate Shiraz McLaren Vale

95 points James Halliday: "Welcome, we hope you enjoy the show. Twist the cap and it's as if the words tumble out. Immediately perfumed and expressive but with the grunt of tannin and fruit to give it real substance. Saturated plum, soy, five spice and smoky, musky oak. The very epitome of a modern major general release shiraz." (3/2014)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color and showing aromas of blackcurrants, black plums and baker’s chocolate with hints of tree bark, charcoal and bacon fat, the medium-bodied 2012 Shiraz is tightly knit on the palate with ripe tannins and fruit that are both ...Read More »

2010 Sons Of Eden "Romulus" Barossa Valley Shiraz (Previously $70)

96 points James Halliday: "A deeper, more purple, and more dense, hue than Remus; the wine spent 20 months in American oak, which has combined with the opulent black fruits and licorice to provide a flamboyant wine that somehow cuts through its layers of flavour. These are two heroic shirazs."94 points James Suckling: "A firm and juicy wine with a dense palate of blueberries and minerals. Some licorice too. This is traditional and fruity but there is an outstanding fruit and tannin balance to it. Better in two or three years as the wood and fruit come together. Old vine wine!"92 points Wine Spectator: "Taut, focused and dark, with blac ...Read More »

2012 Dalwhinnie "Moonambel" Shiraz Pyrenees Victoria

95 points James Halliday: "The deep purple-crimson colour semaphores serious intent, thoroughly intimidating when you realise this is the fourth tier of Dalwhinnie's Shiraz releases; the intimidation continues with a black fruits, tar and licorice bouquet of what is an unashamedly full-bodied Shiraz needing to be left alone until '20." (7/2014)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Shiraz Moonambel offers a gorgeous perfume of violets, aniseed and dark chocolate over a core of cassis, ripe blackberries and cedar plus a hint of spice box.

Full-bodied with tightly-knit, mouth-filling red berry and herb-laced flavors, it has a good foundation of finely grained tannins and enough freshness to sustain the finish.

Drink now through 2021. 200 cases made." (6/2015)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-purple, the 2013 Mon Pere Shiraz exudes black pepper and cloves aromas over a core of black cherries, mulberries and plums. Medium-bodied, it gives plenty of freshly crushed black berry and pepper-laced flavors with a racy acid line and just enough rounded tannins, finishing very spicy.

2012 Eden Road "Long Road" Shiraz Canberra Hilltops New South Wales

94 points James Halliday: "It's a light, fragrant, 'Burgundian' rendition of shiraz. The kind that is often labelled as 'syrah'. It was mostly grown at Gundagai (92%) with input from grapes grown in the Canberra and Hilltops wine regions. 25% whole bunches. It tastes of roasted nuts, red cherries, undergrowthy herbs and woodspice. Its balance is impeccable, as is the wrap of tannin though the juicy finish. Exciting face of Aussie shiraz."

Deeply coloured, it has an exotic, strongly spiced bouquet, followed by an intense, full-bodied palate that, despite its power, remains light on its feet; the flavours of the palate are particularly wide ranging, dark berries and spicy, herbal notes the most obvious; excellent structure and length."

1998 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

Its stunning purple color is accompanied by exceptionally sweet aromas of blackberry liqueur intermixed with barbecue spices, an endearing, smoky earthiness, pepper, roasted meats, and coffee.

(7/2011)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stunning effort, the 2002 Shiraz Command exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of camphor, blueberries, blackberries, acacia flowers, and smoky, toasty oak. Full-bodied, opulent, and viscous, with huge, but sweet tannin, decent acidity, and a muscular, long, 40+ second finish, this is a classic, potentially long-lived, Barossa blockbuster.

2006 Noon Reserve Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Reserve Shiraz was sourced from a 45-year-old vineyard and aged for 18 months in small and large French and American oak. Opaque purple/black in color, it gives up a lavish perfume of smoke, mineral, game, bacon, and blueberry that leaps from the glass. Thick, opulent, and intense, it coats the mouth with savory fruit, spices, and a hint of chocolate. Seamless on the palate, it nevertheless conceals enough structure to evolve for a decade for those able to resist its immediate come-on. It should be at its best from 2012 to 2030." (2/2009)

(7/2008)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Barely budging in hue, the 2006 Amon-Ra Shiraz gives a very deep purple-black color and earthy, gamey aromas of forest floor, moss covered bark, Peking duck skin, mulberries, dried plums, blackberry preserves, incense, cinnamon stick and cloves. Very crisp, concentrated and full with medium-firm velvety tannins, it presents a slightly wa ...Read More »

2005 Mollydooker "Carnival of Love" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Carnival of Love was the first vintage produced of this wine. It has a deep garnet-brick and pronounced earthy, meaty, gamey aromas with nuances of coffee, damp loam, salami and iron ore over a core of dried plums, potpourri and kirsch. Very rich and full bodied, the fruit is just beginning to mature with a nice line of very crisp acid cutting through and medium level of grainy tannins, finishing very long with some licorice notes. Delicious now, it should continue to cellar to 2018+." (2/2012)94 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Brims with personality, playing ...Read More »

2004 Mitolo "GAM" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged 18 months in primarily French oak, the 2004 Shiraz G.A.M. is an exceptional example of a precise yet full-flavored, concentrated Shiraz. Its gorgeous perfume of blueberries, blackberries, camphor, licorice, and pain grille is followed by an inky/blue/purple-colored wine offering superb purity, full-bodied richness, and gorgeous depth as well as texture. This fabulous effort is another example of Ben Glaetzer’s brilliant talents. It should drink well for 15 years.

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.

1997 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

94 points Jancis Robinson: "Medium to full red, with just a touch of purple remaining; powerful, complex dark fruits, chocolate and savoury lemon/vanilla oak on the bouquet, then a similarly powerful palate where earth and chocolate join the chorus of flavours promised by the bouquet; persistent tannins, of course. (Date tasted, June 19, 2002)"94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Grange (a blend of 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon) looks to be a classic Grange, although slightly softer and more forward than the backward 1996. The saturated purple-colored 1997 offers a gorgeously sweet nose of blackberry li ...Read More »

2002 Henry's Drive Shiraz

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dense purple-colored 2002 Shiraz is even better than the Cabernet Sauvignon. Pure blackberry liqueur intermixed with camphor, lead pencil shavings, pepper, and earth notes jump from the glass of this full-bodied, unctuously-textured monster. This opulent, hedonistic 2002 boasts great richness, intensity, and length. How will it age? Although still youthful, it offers fabulous drinking at present, should improve over the next 3-4 years, and last for a decade thereafter. However, there is no reason to defer your gratification.

1999 D'Arenberg "The Dead Arm" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This estate's most renowned offering is their old vine Shiraz (90+ year old vines) called The Dead Arm. The unfined/unfiltered 1999 The Dead Arm Shiraz (2,000 cases) was aged in 100% new oak, of which 70% was American and 30% French. It is about as natural and unmanipulated a product of the vineyard as one can find. Full-bodied and awesomely rich, notes of black pepper, licorice, and blackberry as well as cherry liqueur cascade over the palate with enormous concentration and intensity, high tannin, and a structured, muscular style. Give it 3-4 years of c ...Read More »
