2012 Penfolds "Bin 138" Old Vine Grenache-Shiraz-Mataro Barossa Valley (Elsewhere $30)

94 points James Halliday: "A vintage well suited to this blend of 66/23/11% shiraz/grenache/mataro, creating a wine of even flow, lively acid balance and firm, finely textured tannin support. Violet fragrance and well-defined berry fruits are layered with pepper and spice, confirming a restrained, poised and ageworthy Bin 138, set to go down among the greats." 93 points James Suckling: "The blend in 2012 is shiraz (66%), grenache (23%) and mataro (11%) and shows a wealth of red and blue fruits on offer with attractive brambly summer berry aromas, quite fresh and fragrant, some tarry blue fruits too.

2014 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

96 points James Halliday: "From old vineyards in Krondorf, Marananga and Eden Valley, open-fermented with submerged cap (header board), matured for 15 months in French oak (35% new). Succulent, rich and powerful, with predominantly black fruits and some spice. The hallmarks are its supple mouthfeel and effortless balance."

Somewhere between silky and velvety, this full-bodied, richly textured Shiraz finishes long and appears to have the tannic structure to age well, th ...Read More »

(8/2016) 92 points James Suckling: "A tarry and quite savory rendition of this bargain Barossa shiraz, it has a strong focus on ripe, soft blackberry flavored fruits, hints of plum cake and chocolate, this is one very satisfying wine and represents stunning value.

Complex aromas of black/blueberry, dark plum, floral, game and vanilla lead to a velvety palate that delivers awesome intensity and opulence. A gratifying wine from an exceptional vintage. Surely this is the best wine made under this label of fifty-year history. At its best: 2022 to 2042. Signatory: Robert Hill-Smith."

2013 Langmeil "The Blacksmith" Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley South Australia

91 points Vinous: "(aged for two years in 10% new French oak barrels): Vivid purple. Pungent cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by mocha, tobacco and licorice nuances. On the plate, juicy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted and sharpened by tangy acidity. The lively, penetrating finish features sappy dark berry and floral pastille notes and smooth, slow-building tannins. (JR)" (3/2016) Wine Spectator: "Plenty of firm tannins at the core, with a distinct herbal edge including dill, sage and bay leaf elements, and plum flavors peeking through. (MW, Web-2016)"

The abundant texture and structure are remarkable until one remembers John Duval’s long career at Penfolds, with responsibility for Grange." 91 points Vinous: "Light yellow. Ripe orchard and pit fruits on the deeply perfumed, spice-tinged nose and in the mouth. Round and fleshy yet lively, with slow-building spiciness and a touch of honeysuckle.

It's a fresh, vigourous red with anise, raspberry, squishy blackberries and wood spice notes ramping the appeal up high. It'll age but there's no real reason to wait."

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.

This is a component of the 2015 vintage of Duval’s newest-release Annexus grenache planted in 1858 in Springton. (Barrel Sample)" 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "(94+) Made from 100% Grenache, the medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Annexus has a seriously intense perfume of crushed cherries and black raspberries with roses and violets plus suggestions of anise, cinnamon stick and dark chocolate.

(3/2016) K&L Notes: Exceptional Cabernet for a song! This keeps its varietal correctness with blackcurrant fruit, leather and a touch of pipe tobacco. Combine this with Barossa Valley's signature scorched earth and meaty aspects and you have one serious wine. Full bodied, succulent and gratifying - a big, rich Cab that is easy drinking and really over delivers at this economical price point. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Aussi... Read More »

(named after the Mitolo family’s three children) exhibits aromas of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, blueberries, cassis, licorice, new oak, and scorched earth.

(7/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cut from the same mold as the 2004, the spectacular 2005 Shiraz exhibits an inkier purple color as well as a deeper, richer, more nuanced style. Cropped at .8 tons of fruit per acre, which no doubt accounts for its awesome concentration, it is even better than the 2004, and should be longer lived, evolving for 15 or more years."

2013 Hewitson "Old Garden" Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

The briary, blackberry fruit is lavished with toasty, vanilla-scented French oak, which melds nicely into a full-bodied, slightly creamy-textured wine that avoids any sensation of warmth or heaviness. Drink now - 2030. (JC)" (6/2017) K&L Notes: In 1853 Friedrich Koch planted this Mourvèdre vineyard in the heart of the Barossa Valley in the area now known as Rowland Flat.

(4/2011) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A blend of 80% Shiraz and 20% Cabernet, this rich, almost Port-like wine also shows a slight herbal note - enough to give it some lift and complexity.

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.

The intense 1999, released in 2004, demonstrates that this vintage is somewhat underrated after all the hype over 1998.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon from 11-year old vines, aged in a combination of one-year old and new French oak) is a fruit-dominated wine with the classic cassis intermixed with a touch of herbs, a slight notion of volatile acidity, and a spicy finish. The wine is full-bodied, ripe, but at the same time, elegant, particularly for a Greenock Creek wine." (6/2001) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby color. Pungent, oaky aromas of iron, smoke, nutmeg and mint. Lush red berry fruit complicated by hints of meat, iron and milk chocolate. Finishes with sweet, lush t ...Read More »

1998 Veritas "Heysen" Barossa Valley Shiraz

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A more perplexing offering, the 1998 Shiraz Heysen displays plenty of kirsch and blackberry fruit as well as hints of Chinese black tea, meat, and roasted herbs presented in a rich, full-bodied, impressively endowed style. It should evolve for a decade or more. This is the home estate of Rolf Binder, one of the most talented winemakers in South Australia. As the tasting notes indicate, these wines are holding up beautifully." (6/2009)

2003 Henschke Keyneton Estate "Euphonium" Barossa Red

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 06: "($45; a blend of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc) Deep ruby. Potent red and dark berries on the nose, with exotic notes of fruitcake, molasses, anise and dark chocolate. Smoky, musky tobacco and cured meat notes accent brooding, sweet blackberry and blackcurrant flavors, with a deeper espresso suggestion on the back. Quite ripe and rich, with a chewy texture and firm tannins on the finish. This has fruit to spare, the dark berry flavors showing excellent length and b... Read More »

2015 Powell & Son G-S-M Barossa Valley South Australia

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. (LPB)" (3/2017)

2016 Powell & Son Roussanne-Marsanne Barossa Valley South Australia

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. The style is typically lower in acid and high in phenolic content, which provides richness on the palate and requisite phenolics to age. While floral, bright in fruit and pretty in youth this wine should age to become savoury, complex and decadent in years to come. Our Roussanne is fermented and aged in stainless steel to maintain acidity and fruit f... 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. (LPB)" (3/2017) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Black walnut, dried porcino and nutmeg flavors are rich and compelling, set against a backdrop of plum and blackberry. Dark chocolate notes linger in the background on the long, firming finish. Dri ...Read More »
