2014 Yalumba "Old Bush Vine" Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

92 points James Halliday: "The colour is light but brilliant crimson; the use of French oak isn't at all obvious in this light-bodied, but highly focused wine, with spicy red fruits and confection kept to a minimum. It is absolutely ready to drink immediately to appreciate its perfume and freshness." (7/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale garnet colored with a hint of purple, the 2014 Grenache Old Bush Vine offers enticing red cherry and raspberry preserves notes accented with suggestions of cinnamon stick, orange peel, red roses and white pepper.

2012 Hewitson "Miss Harry" GSM Barossa Valley South Australia

94 points James Halliday: "Complex without being try-hard about it. Gorgeous mix of various berried fruits, licorice, grainy tannin, savoury-smoky notes and clovey oak. It's at the upper end of mid-weight but it's mouthfilling. High quality tannin and length. Warm finish but impressive all round." (7/2014) 93 points James Suckling: "Lots of peppery fruit with plum, dried strawberry and spice. Full to medium body, integrated tannins and a beautiful, balanced finish. Hard to find something like this even in Châteauneauf. Wonderful value. Drink now." (1/2015) 91 points Vinous: "(a blend of grenache, shiraz, mourvedre, carignan and c ...Read More »

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. Deep, dense purple-crimson, it underscores the supreme quality of the vineyard, for this could pass muster as a Reserve release thanks to the layered array of red and black fruits, rounded tannins and quality oak; the balance is such that it can b ...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 "Skinbone" Grenache Rosé Barossa Valley (Dry)

Vivid crimson; vibrant acidity gives this complex wine the characteristics of a white wine with a formidable finish." K&L Notes: A beautiful dry, fresh, rose of Grenache. The fruit is picked early specifically for Rose production to retain lots of mouth watering acidity and very moderate alcohol (11.5%). This rose se... Read More »

2015 Rogers and Rufus Grenache Rosé Barossa (Dry) (Elsewhere $20)

Winemaker's notes: "Bright salmon pink in colour. A highly aromatic wine that opens with strawberries and cream, cherry blossom, talcum powder and a hint of pear skin. This wine has flavours of raspberry iced tea, red apple and pomegranate. A supple and briny texture with a blood orange finish leaves you looking for the next sip.

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.

(HS)" (8/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 36% Shiraz, 34% Mataro, 30% Grenache, the medium garnet colored 2012 Three Gardens Shiraz Mataro Grenache is slightly reduced at first before eventually giving way to notes of kirsch, raspberry preserves and mulberries with hints of sauteed herbs, pepper and Indian spices.

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

2004 Kaesler "WOMS" Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley South Australia

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An intriguing blend is the sensational 2004 Shiraz/Cabernet Woms (65% Shiraz and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon). Made in a more elegant style, it offers notions of Provencal herbs, pepper, garrigue, black currants, blackberries, and toasty oak. Unlike The Bogan, it was aged in 100% new French oak, and reveals more subtle wood notes along with full-bodied power and richness, and a 40-45-second finish. It should age well for 12-15 years. (RP)" (10/2006) 94 points James Halliday: "Concentrated, intense blackberry, blackcurrant fruit, tannins and oak all seamlessly interwoven. Parker powerhous ...Read More »

It is full-bodied and powerful with fabulous purity and texture as well as a blockbuster finish. This is a classic example of Barossa Shiraz at its finest.

2005 Three Rings Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

Thick and almost syrupy, with fat blackberry, bitter cherry and chocolate fudge flavors, a vaguely herbal character and no apparent acidity or tannins. Clings to the palate on the finish like a fruit syrup. This is the style that has made modern Australia's reputation, for better or worse."
