2014 S.C. Pannell Syrah Adelaide Hills South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, open-fermented with 15% whole bunches, matured for 12 months in large-format French oak. Spicy, peppery notes are liberally sprinkled on the expressive black cherry fruit of the bouquet, the sheer volume of that fruit not imperilling the medium-bodied nature of the palate, simply setting the scene for the remarkable drive and intensity of the finish and cleansing aftertaste." (8/2016) 95 points James Suckling: "A very handy follow-up to the previous vintage which won the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy, in fact, this could be a nose in front in terms of quality. The 2014 vi ...Read More »

2013 Jim Barry "Lodge Hill" Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

93 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Full crimson-purple; the back label proclaims that the Lodge Hill Vineyard is the highest in the Clare Valley at 480m and the wine has cool-grown nuances in its bloodstream; jet black fruits have rivulets of licorice, pepper and spice with banks of fine, savoury tannins." (2/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 Shiraz The Lodge Hill is redolent of eucalyptus, Chinese five spice, blackberries, black cherries and pepper hints, then fills the medium to full-bodied palate with a good amount of chewy tannins and plenty ...Read More »

2012 Wakefield (Taylor's) "St. Andrews" Single Vineyard Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $50)

96 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Slightly turbid/cloudy rim to the colour, although the hue is bright; it's very clear this has been made from an exceptional parcel of estate fruit, for it has an elegance and length not commonly found in the Clare Valley; likewise, its range of spicy red fruits merging with gently savoury/earthy nuances is exceptional." 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This is wonderfully complex and aromatic, with scents ranging from baking spices and savory beef to mixed berries. That swirl of seeming contradictions continues on the palate, backed by luxuriou ...Read More »

2013 Sons of Eden "Romulus" Old Vine Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "From three low-yielding vineyards, extended fermentation with different approaches, matured in mainly new American hogsheads for 20 months. The come-hither message of the bouquet leads into an even more seductive palate with folds of velvet and satin around dark cherry and plum fruit, soft tannins a constant undertow." (8/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Romulus delivers a gorgeous nose of blackberry tart, crème de cassis and mocha with suggestions of spice cake, cloves, incense and hoisin.

2014 Hentley Farm Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "**2015 Winery of The Year Award - James Halliday's Wine Companion** Hentley Farm has a single-minded focus on producing what is as close as you're ever going find in Australia to a Grand Cru Burgundy or a First Growth Bordeaux. An estate-grown wine blended from different blocks within the Hentley Farm vineyard.

The medium to full-bodied palate is youthfully restrained, with taut, muscular blackberry and exotic spice flavors supported by fine-grained, firm tannins and lively acid, finishing with excellent length.

A top notch successor to the acclaimed '12." 96 points James Suckling: "A distinct evolution has happened around this wine with a more fragrant, spicy, lithe and lively style taking shape here.

97 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked from low-yielding 50+yo vines, open-fermented, some whole bunches, cold soak, post-ferment maceration, matured in predominantly new French hogsheads for 22 months. The low yield and vinification haven't led to dead fruit and/or over-extraction, and this has exceptional intensity and power, the whole bunch inclusion providing some lift, the French oak a flavour counterbalance for a wine of the highest quality."

Drink now through 2025." 93 points James Halliday: "There is a warmth of fruit in the '09 St Henri that offers plush mulberry, spice, blackberry confiture and tar on the bouquet; the palate is generous on entry, warm and inviting, with a lively backbone of acidity cleaning up the tail of fine-grained tannins and charry ...Read More »

Estate-grown grapes come from a single block high on the hill, with shallow soils and even sunlight exposure resulting in very small berries.

2003 Henry's Drive "Reserve" Shiraz Padthaway South Australia

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Shiraz Reserve, which I assume is made from the richest barrels, has all the same characteristics of the regular bottling, with more weight, opulence, and persistence. The 16% alcohol is beautifully concealed by its prodigious concentration. Readers who love the extroverted personalities of these wild and crazy Australian reds should drink it over the next 10-12 years." (10/2005) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Big, muscular style has ultraripe cherry and dusky spice flavors, finishing with flavors of rare meat and pepper. A brawny wine that's also a bit hot.

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

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.

Tighter because of being in the bottle, it is an extraordinary effort that offers the essence of graphite, blackberry liqueur, espresso, and acacia flowers, all combining into an olfactory smorgasbord for the senses.
