2010 d'Arenberg "Dead Arm" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $60+)

96 points James Halliday: "An unambiguously top class version of a distinguished lineage; the colour is as bright as the spicy red fruit aromas of the bouquet, the palate with a cascade of red and black fruits, spice, licorice and bitter chocolate flavours, yet providing all this with finesse and calm." (2/2014) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Dead Arm Shiraz has slightly evolving blackberry notes wafting over a core of forest fruit coulis and dried mulberries accented by suggestions of sandalwood, Indian spices and dried Mediterranean herbs. Medium to full-bodied with loads of ...Read More »

2012 Oakridge Estate "Over the Shoulder" Shiraz Yarra Valley Victoria (Elsewhere $20+)

90 points James Halliday: "Pepper-laden shiraz. Meaty, mid-weight style. Cherry-flavoured fruit. Has enough interest, flavour and form to satisfy. Chewy finish. Toasty/spicy oak tops it off nicely." (2/2014) K&L Notes: All estate fruit from Oakridge Estate in Yarra Valley. The wine shows lovely perfumed notes of red currant, raspberry and toasted spices. The palate is medium bodied with great vibrant energy and fine soft tannins. Flavors of ripe red berries with some darker richer fruit emerghing, exotic spices, a little lick of classy french oak, and some warm earth notes in the finish. Great... Read More »

2012 Howard Park "Leston Vineyard" Shiraz Margaret River

95 points James Halliday: "Spent 18 months in new and 1-year-old French barriques. As the Shiraz vines in Margaret River have become mature, so has the depth of the fruit intensified, this wine a prime example, as its layers of black fruits and almost creamy tannins show; needless to say, the cedary impact of the French oak also plays a significant role." (2/2014) 95 points Sam Kim: "A lovely, perfumed bouquet: aromas of dark plum, blueberry and floral with hints of white pepper and cocoa on the nose. The palate is ripe and silky with an abundance of appealing flavours and polished tannins. It is linge ...Read More »

2012 Yangarra Estate Shiraz McLaren Vale (Previously $22.00)

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 "Remus" Eden Valley Shiraz (Previously $70)

95 points James Halliday: "A slightly brighter, more red, hue than Romulus; a complex, luscious wine that shows its 22-month maturation in mainly new French oak; the fruit flavours are in a black cherry and spice spectrum, the tannins plentiful but ripe, reflecting the minimal fining." (3/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "Clean blueberry and blackberry character with hints of flowers. Full body, wonderful fruit and subtle black pepper and sandalwood. Balanced and refined. Better in 2016, when everything will be in harmony, but beautiful now." (5/2014) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Polished, expressive and focused, with juicy flavors of black ...Read More »

2014 BK Wines "Cult" Syrah Adelaide Hills South Australia

Winemaker's Notes: "When Cult Syrah first hit the scene he was a mouthy upstart; a belligerent, in-your-face raconteur with noisy, controversial opinions on everything from Justin Bieber to geopolitics. With every subsequent vintage he has matured, though we would never say mellowed. Gone are the screaming outbursts and rough edges verging at times on frivolity, replaced by a seriousness of purpose and the wisdom not to offend. He’s a grown-up sherbet, a tannic sorbet. He’s black pepper, curry leaf, cumin, bacon fat and salt. Where once he fidgeted, Cul... Read More »

All Saints Sparkling Shiraz Rutherglen

Wine Spectator: "Soft and fizzy, with pretty black raspberry and hints of smoke in the flavor mix, finishing with deftness. (Web-2013)" K&L Notes: This sparkling wine shows depth of flavour with true varietal character and style. Deep crimson in colour, it displays fresh berry fruit aromas complemented by subtle vanillin oak characters. Soft, full and flavoursome, the palate is intense and persistent in flavour, with great structure. The rich fruit sweetness of Shiraz is balanced with natural tannin and acid giving a lively, fresh palate and the influence of light oak further enhance... Read More »

2012 Eden Road "Long Road" Shiraz Canberra Hilltops New South Wales (Previously $27)

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." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Since its very first vintage when it won the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, The Long Road Shiraz has quickly become eagerly sought-after. ... Read More »

(9/2011) K&L Notes: LDR stands for Lovedale Road, the address of the De Iuliis family vineyard, where Shiraz grapes were planted on heavy clay soils in 1990. This unique Single Vineyard Shiraz displays all the hallmarks of a Hunter classic: Elegant, medium-bodied, earthy and savoury, a hint of cherry, plum, and blackcurrants ... Read More »

The palate has wonderful balance and elegance for its commendable concentration and fullness, with tons of muscular fruit and spice layers framed by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with great persistence.

Irresistible Show style." (10/2002) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full, dark red. Complex, musky, exotic nose combines violet, cassis, mint, spices and black pepper, with cedar and vanillin notes and a suggestion of meatiness.

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." (12/2013)

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."

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.

Deep ruby/purple-colored, with full body, and loads of blackberry, cassis, licorice, earth, and vanilla aromas as well as flavors, this chewy Shiraz possesses good underlying acidity along with fine definition and purity.

A deeper, richer, fuller-bodied offering that spent time in equal parts French and American oak, it possesses an opaque purple color, great intensity, and a fabulously sweet nose of blackberries, cassis, asphalt, earth, and oak. Powerful, super-concentrated, and obviously fashioned from low yields and old vines, this is a classic McLaren Vale old vine Shiraz that should age nicely for 15+ years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The youngest Run Rig, the 2001, should equal the 1998 as it is almost a clone aromatically, texturally, and flavor-wise, just much younger. This opaque purple-colored beauty should flirt with perfection over the next 10-15 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." (06/2009)

This enormous wine is fabulously young with its entire future ahead of it. (RP)" (8/2003)

Although it pushes ripeness to the limit, it does not reveal any raisiny/pruny characteristics. It offers wonderful freshness, good acidity, superb intensity, and copious quantities of blackberry, cassis, crushed rock, floral, and spicy new oak notes. Massive and concentrated with perfect equilibrium, it can be drunk now and over the next 25 years. Kudos to one of the world’s finest wine producers!
