2013 John Duval "Plexus" SGM Barossa Valley South Australia

94 points James Halliday: "In beautiful condition and shape. It tastes beautiful. Raspberry, blueberry and blackberry, no alarms or surprises, complemented by woody spice and fine, smoky oak. Everything is where it should, and where you'd hope, it to be." (2/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet in color, the 2013 Plexus (a Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre blend) gives slowly evolving raspberry tart, kirsch, potpourri and garrigue notes with underlying spice box and incense hints. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is velveteen textured with layers of expressive red fruits preserves and exotic spic ...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. The palate has density with the right hand of balance to guide it in."

2015 Schwarz "Thiele Road Block" Grenache Barossa South Australia

92 points James Halliday: "From vines planted '41, wild yeast open-fermented, 20% whole bunches, gentle pumpovers, foot-stomped near the end of fermentation, 25 days on skins, matured in used French oak and a small tank, blended February '16, remaining in tank until bottled Dec '16. Very light colour; fresh, savoury, spicy notes rather than confection is a relief; red fruits on the finish." (8/2017) K&L Notes: From a block planted in 1941. Open fermented (wild), most of it destemmed but 15% included as whole bunches. Extended maceration by virtue of the fact that the ferment was unhurried. All... Read More »

2015 Powell & Son Shiraz Barossa & Eden Valleys South Australia

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Barossa & Eden Valleys Shiraz delivers expressive red currant, black cherry and crushed blackberry notes over hints of baking spices, garrigue, black pepper and lavender. Medium to full-bodied and very finely textured with silken, fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness, it has wonderful length and depth.

2013 Hentley Farm "The Beast" Single Block Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Awesomely powerful, with a tsunami of sombre black fruits, licorice and tannins to match, overwhelm you the moment the wine enters the mouth. It is, of course, full-bodied, and doesn't have the fluid grace of the other Hentley Farm '13 Shirazs. It is indeed a beast, but will repay those who put their faith in the high quality corks used by Henley Farm." (3/2015) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz The Beast has an earthy/gamey nose with dried mulberries and preserved plums at the core, morphing into spice box, sandalwood and peppery notes.

2015 Schwarz "Nitschke Block" Shiraz Barossa South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "The vines were planted by Jason Schwarz's parents in '68. Picked in two portions, the first 14 Feb, 20% whole bunches, wild yeast open-fermented, 25 days on skins, matured in French hogsheads (25% new); the second picked 24 Feb, 25% whole bunches, 20 days on skins, matured in one new French hogsheads and puncheon, the bunches foot-stomped at the end of fermentation. Sophisticated winemaking, the only question the amount of French oak apparent now, but will regress with more time in bottle." (8/2017) K&L Notes: From a vineyard planted in 1968.

2015 Hentley Farm Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Concentration of flavour and overall form and poise is quite incredible given that this isn't among the top-of-the-tree releases from the estate. This is where the wine drinker really is the winner. It's thick with flavour but remains buoyant, even jolly, with life. Tannin too shirks no issues whatsoever. Barossa at its best."

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz and 20% Mataro, the 2015 Grenache Shiraz Mataro displays a medium garnet-purple color and nose of baked cherries, raspberry preserves and warm plums with a smoky/chargrill undercurrent and savory touch of yeast extract. Full-bodied with concentrated flavors in the mouth, it has a solid backbone of firm, ripe tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and savory.

(8/2016) 93 points James Suckling: "A beautiful expression of shiraz from Barossa with a freshness and linear length to it. Medium to full body, fine and intense. Spice and meat character is all here. Just hint of peanuts. Drink now. Screw cap." (10/2016) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "For an entry-level wine, this is excellent.

2016 Powell & Son Roussanne-Marsanne Barossa Valley South Australia (Previously $40)

The supple texture and detailed finish go on and on. Drink now through 2027. 150 cases made." K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Our Roussanne Marsanne is based on the style of the great Hermitage Blancs of the Northern Rhone Valley. We aim for richness, minerality and hedonism in this, our most premium white wine. While floral, bright in fruit and pretty in youth this wine should age to become savoury, complex and decadent in years to come." 94+ p... Read More »

2016 Schwarz "META" Grenache Barossa South Australia

90 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, 86% whole bunches, wild-fermented, neither fined or filtered. Very light colour, not much more than rose. Grenache is like pinot noir: the depth (or lack) of colour can fool those who jump to conclusions. The spicy, juicy red fruits are not confected, the finish fresh." (8/2017) K&L Notes: Grenache from Bethany and Marananga in the Barossa Valley. Wild fermented. 86% whole bunches. There’s a line of redcurrant and sweet raspberry, on both the nose and palate, but it quickly turns dry, smoky, almost sandy. This is an uncompromising style. Herb and spice n... Read More »

It's all red fruits and earth, dried herbs and smoky oak, with licorice root rising through the aftertaste. But best of all, it has length and X-factor in spades." (3/2016) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "While the nose is on the simple side, with ultraripe - almost confected - cherry, cocoa powder, flowers and medicinal herbs, it’s the palate that draws you in. Fresh acidity, particularly for the variety, and a good lick of tannins round out this sleek, well-structured wine. Drink now - 2025." (12/2017) K&L Notes: Winemake... Read More »

Vineyard blocks were harvested and vinified separately.

2006 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

(7/2008) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Shows a slightly lifted, peppery character on the nose, but also plenty of toasty oak and bold fruit. Loads of blackberries, blueberries and chocolate cascade over the palate, accented with enough spice and warmth to leave a fleeting impression of fruitcake. Lush and long on the finish. Drink now-2020 or beyond. (JC)" (11/2007) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet, the 2006 Amon-Ra ...Read More »

Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering spice-laced, concentrated black and blue fruit flavors and subtle notes of candied licorice and menthol that build in the glass.

Spicy aromatics abound with black and white pepper, Chinese five spice and native pepper berry jumping out the glass. With so much going on it is best enjoyed on its own, however tuck into this with a Peking Duck and you'll be extremely satisfied." 96 points Wine Front: "Blend of Barossa Valley mataro, grenache, and shiraz, pretty much ...

Aged 27 months in 100% new French 300 liter hogsheads, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it is an opaque purple-hued, backward, but super-concentrated, full-bodied effort with enormous potential.

James Suckling: "The 2010 Grange arrives with much expectation and does not disappoint. This is a powerhouse, structurally superior to both the 2009 and 2008 vintages and breathtakingly dense, long and precise. The nose has cola, blackberry, vanillin, hard brown spices of all kinds, coal smoke, meaty charcuterie elements and a strong tarry, savory note that speaks of the 85% Barossa Valley componentry. The palate has super deep tannins that fan out through flavorsome black fruits. These are purposeful tannins; they bristle on the palate, tantalizing and assertive yet playful, strong not aggressive. The power here is the thing; this has mouth-coating density and terrific drive, so tightly coiled, it gives enough away to suggest a very, very long cellaring wine is here. This is a classic Grange that will please the serious collectors. A wine of genuine pedigree. Bet
