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 »

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.

2013 Shaw + Smith Shiraz Adelaide Hills (Elsewhere $40)

97 points James Halliday: "Vivid crimson; the fragrant array of black cherry, blackberry, spice and cracked pepper aromas feed into the beautifully textured and proportioned palate, where silky tannins provide perfect support and mouthfeel. 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. Smells of ripe red and dark cherries, cassis, blackberry and plum fruits abound with plenty of spice and gently toasty oak. There's a distinctive graphite-like edge, and whole bunch ...Read More »

2013 John Duval "Eligo" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep purple-black in color, the 2013 Eligo has an intoxicating nose of creme de cassis, blueberry tart and violets with underlying menthol, cloves, fenugreek, licorice and dark chocolate hints. 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.

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."

Heady, assertively perfumed scents of fresh black and blue fruits, incense, vanilla and smoky minerals, with a suave floral topnote building in the glass. Oak-spiced blackberry and boysenberry flavors unfold slowly, picking up spicecake and cola nuances on the back half and staining the palate on the sweet, supple finish.

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.

1996 Veritas "Heysen Vineyard" Shiraz Barossa Valley

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong argument can be made that that the two Shiraz cuvees ("Hanish" and "Heysen") are the top wines from Veritas. This wine, made from 30-year old vines that average 2.5 tons of fruit per acre, tips the scales at a whopping 15.1% alcohol, although you would never know it when tasting this super-concentrated wine. It is a killer Shiraz, with an opaque purple color, peppery, tar, sweet, layered, jammy blackberry fruit, hints of subtle new oak, and a massive, powerful, full-bodied finish that goes on and on.

Produced from a 35-40-year old McLaren Vale vineyard, it possesses amazing aromatics, purity, texture, and richness.

Very rich and full, with terrific cut and lift. The flavors of bright red berries are complicated by sweet pastry hints and tangy minerality.

Seventy percent new French oak was utilized, and the wine, which was going to bottled unfiltered about one month after I tasted it, exhibits a sweet nose of blackberries, raspberries, smoke, camphor, and graphite.

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. Sensationally concentrated, with sweet tannin, but neither weighty nor over the top as might be expected for a wine of such extreme richness, it is an extraordinarily well-delineated Syrah that should hit its prime in 10-12 years, and last for 30-40.
