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 »

2015 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

96 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* "Reflects - in the best sense - John Duval's long career as the chief architect of Grange. This brings together depth, texture and complexity to a palette of black fruits, ripe tannins and oak. It cries out for patience (as does Grange), and the greater your patience, the greater the reward." 93 points James Suckling: "nose is all blackberry and dark plums with background cola, earth and baking spices.

2013 Rymill Estate Shiraz Coonawarra

95 points James Halliday: "This is a very good Coonawarra Shiraz, speaking volumes about its variety and place, and a little about its vinification, the last very sensible. 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." K&L Notes: 92 points Wine Front: '"Big for a Coonawarra shiraz. Lots of ripe, darkish fruit and a complementary hit of coffeed, chocolatey oak. Spice notes play a keen role too but ro...

97 points James Halliday: "From 1899 and 1965 estate plantings, matured in French (75%) and American oak for 15 months. An exceptional pedigree reflected in a shiraz of rare elegance, balance and finesse; its supple, medium-bodied palate is almost lip smacking, so juicy is it, but there is no shortage of texture or structure." 94 points James Suckling: "A very ripe, fragrant wine that has plenty of blackberry fruit, some tarry elements and a distinct earthy tone. Very ripe and still fresh. The palate's sturdy, dense and balanced. Very even, dark-plum flavors twist tarry through the finish. Tannins creep soft ...Read More »

Seamless and concentrated yet lively; the long, gently tannic finish is enlivened by mineral and floral nuances."

2012 Streicker "Bridgeland Block" Syrah Margaret River (Elsewhere $35)

The wine is serious though, with cloves, nuts and spice notes churning through intense black cherry and pepper, smoky oak then clinching the deal. Assertive tannin, complex flavour, convincing power; it's excellent from every angle."

2008 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep purple-black in color, the 2008 Grange puts forward a very complex nose packed with aromas of mulberries, layers of baking spices, cloves and cinnamon with nuances of minced meat, anise, potpourri and whiffs of dried mint and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, taut and very spicy in the mouth, it shows touches of sandalwood and Chinese five spice complementing the layers of dark fruit flavors. It is framed by firm, grainy tannins and a refreshing acid line before finishing very long with aniseed and lingering blackberry preserves notes. This is clear ...Read More »

2006 Mitolo "Savitar" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "A monster! Showing a little reduction from more oak, the fruit weight of this wine is staggering; layers of fruit strip away as you let it hang around on your palate for a seriously long time; the strong core of dark minerality shows just how complex it is." (7/2008) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Shiraz “Savitar” was aged in 100% new oak, predominantly French. Purple-colored, the aromatics are a bit reticent initially, but soon scents of toasty oak, tar, licorice, scorched earth, and blueberry emerge. This leads to a wine which is more structured and less opulent than its peer ...Read More »

2003 Henry's Drive Shiraz Padthaway South Australia Back In Stock!
2003 Henry's Drive Shiraz Padthaway South Australia

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Shiraz is a full-bodied, opulently-styled red that smells of creme de cassis and blackberry liqueur intermixed with smoky meats, espresso roast, jammy black fruits, licorice, earth, and toasty new oak. It should evolve nicely for a decade or more. Full-throttle Shiraz are fashioned by winemaker Kim Johnston from vineyards owned by the Longbottom family. This is an unabashed, flamboyant, Aussie wine that is loaded with fruit, fragrance, glycerin, and intensity. This is the type of wine that Eurocentric wine tasters and condescending elitists tend ...Read More »

2006 Mollydooker "Velvet Glove" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Velvet Glove is the first vintage ever made and is deep garnet-black in color with an alluring meaty and gamey nose accented by smoky bacon, a bit of brine and iron ore, some dried plums and black berry preserves and notes of figs and eucalyptus. Full-bodied and crisp, it is richly concentrated with coffee and raisin flavors, has medium levels of velvety tannins and excellent length on the finish. I found the nose to be showing just a little muted, so give 1-2 years and drink to 2024+. (LPB)" (2/2013) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, ripe and harmoniously balanced, this is ...Read More »

2013 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Remember that old Heinz Ketchup "anticipation" ad from the 1970s? The palate of this 2013 Grange does just that. 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. Very deep inky purple-black colored, the 2013 Grange has a profoundly scented nose of crème de cassis, preserved black plums, blueberry pie and licorice over nuances of baker's ch ...Read More »
