2012 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $42) Top Pick!
2012 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $42)

96 points Decanter: "For me, the best edition of this well-crafted Shiraz. The nose is ripe and mellow, with layers of rich blackberry and plum. There's a wealth of spice and soulful, earthy depth and a smoky tarry edge too. The palate is smoothly honed, with a dense mid-palate that offers bright blackberry and plum flavors. Deceptively study tannins carry hauntingly throughout and merit considerable cellaring if you can manage to keep your hands off it! Drink 2018-2030." (6/2014)94 points James Halliday: "Warm at heart but with its eyes firmly set on savouriness. Sweet plum and vanilla meet notes of s ...Read More »

2012 John Duval "Plexus" SGM Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

95 points James Halliday: "Armed with flavour and dangerously drinkable. Red and black berries, ground Asian spice, earth, aniseed and a quick kiss of cedary French oak. Puts on an impeccable performance." (7/2014)94 points James Suckling: "Duval's regional red, which melds Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre together seamlessly, is a stunning rendition in the 2012 vintage. The Barossan origin is strong in all aspects of the wine, which shows deep blackberries and other red fruits on the nose in addition to some gently earthy and tarry meat accents, hints of nutty oak and a sense of vibrant ripeness. The palate d ...Read More »

2011 Sons of Eden "Kennedy" GSM Barossa Valley (Previously $29.00)

93 points James Halliday: "Bright crimson-purple hue, although not deep; a 30/37/24% blend; particularly attractive wine in the context of '11, with abundant sweet dark berry fruit without any Turkish delight/confection flavours; there is a seamless flow of flavour from the first sip right the way through to the aftertaste." (7/2013)91 points Wine Spectator: "Smooth and expressive, brimming with coffee-accented blackberry and purple plum flavors, tumbling through the open-textured finish. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre." (5/2014) K&L Notes: Sons of Eden is a new project from two guys who really know what they're doing. W... Read More »

2012 Hewitson "Ned & Henry's" Shiraz-Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "The grapes were grown on Barossa Valley terra rossa: oxidised iron red soils over limestone, and the wine was matured in used French oak. The vivid colour of the wine attests to its moderate alcohol, as does the joyful display of red and black fruits; the tannins are supple, the oak subtle but evident. Fantastic value."

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 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby.

2012 John Duval "Eligo" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Eligo has a profoundly scented nose of crème de cassis, blackberry pie, licorice, dark chocolate and blueberry preserves against an earthy/meaty background of bacon fat, forest floor, beef dripping and black loam. The densely packed, full-bodied palate manages almost paradoxical elegance and restraint with velvety tannins and lively acid giving closure to the long, multilayered finish.

2010 Langmeil "Blacksmith" Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley (Elsewhere $28)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet with a purple rim, the 2010 Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon opens with wonderfully intense, slowly evolving notes of creme de cassis, dried plums and menthol over hints of cigar boxes, cinnamon stick, dried herbs and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied with mouth-filling black fruit preserves and baking spice flavors, it has a medium level of fine-grained tannins, refreshing acid and a finish with very good length. Drink it now to 2019+. (LPB)"90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby.

2010 Sons Of Eden "Romulus" Barossa Valley Shiraz (Previously $70)

96 points James Halliday: "A deeper, more purple, and more dense, hue than Remus; the wine spent 20 months in American oak, which has combined with the opulent black fruits and licorice to provide a flamboyant wine that somehow cuts through its layers of flavour. These are two heroic shirazs."94 points James Suckling: "A firm and juicy wine with a dense palate of blueberries and minerals. Some licorice too. This is traditional and fruity but there is an outstanding fruit and tannin balance to it. Better in two or three years as the wood and fruit come together. Old vine wine!"92 points Wine Spectator: "Taut, focused and dark, with blac ...Read More »

2012 Langmeil "Fifth Wave" Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia (Previously $35)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Grenache Fifth Wave has subtle herb and dried leaves notes over a core of red currants, cranberries and Bing cherries, plus a touch of Szechuan pepper. Full-bodied with tightly-knit, mouth-filling red berry and herb-laced flavors, it has a good foundation of finely grained tannins and enough freshness to sustain the finish. (91+)" K&L Notes: The Fifth Wave Grenache comes from a once-neglected old vine vineyard in Lyndoch.

Opulent and appealingly juicy on the palate, with intense dark berry, bitter cherry and vanilla flavors and a touch of mocha. Lively and expansive on the penetrating finish, with sweet tannins adding shape." (7/2014)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "91+ points.

93 points James Halliday: "No mistaking its appeal. Berried flavour, complexing notes of tobacco leaf and leather, a general savoury/earthy/spiciness and the sweetness of fruit to keep you tipping back for more. Integrated tannin. More or less unresolved on the finish but time will take care of that."

2002 Elderton "Command" Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Good colour; excellent focus, balance and length; blackberry fruit with lashings of dark chocolate and spice; ripe tannins, controlled oak." (7/2011)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stunning effort, the 2002 Shiraz Command exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of camphor, blueberries, blackberries, acacia flowers, and smoky, toasty oak. Full-bodied, opulent, and viscous, with huge, but sweet tannin, decent acidity, and a muscular, long, 40+ second finish, this is a classic, potentially long-lived, Barossa blockbuster.

2002 Penfolds "RWT" Shiraz Barossa Valley

(7/2011)93 points Wine Spectator: "Muted aromas, but it's generous and jazzy in the mouth. Lively, with blackberry, cherry and white pepper flavors remaining zingy through the long, harmonious finish. Hints at white chocolate as the flavors linger. Tannins are firm, but fine. Drink now through 2020." (9/2005)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the “Rewards of Patience” vertical in Berlin. The 2002 RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz has a ve ...Read More »

2014 Kalleske "Clarry’s" Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre Barossa Valley (Elsewhere $30)

Wine Spectator: "Chalky tannins surround a sleek core of cherry and floral flavors, finishing with a strong meaty note. Needs time to come together. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Best after 2016. (Web Only—2015)" K&L Notes: Clarry’s is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro with old vine Grenache from the 1940s and 1960s. The wine is fermented in open-top fermenters and basket pressed. To preserve the superb fresh fruit flavours of the wine, it was only aged in very old oak hogsheads and only for a limited time of one year. Clarry’s is soft and fruit-driven with flavours of raspberry,... Read More »

Dark plums, red fruit, coal tar and earthy aromas with citrus peel, spice and a gamey, savoury note. The palate is laced with pepper and spice, dark slate and minerals and squeaky tannins. Juicy, upbeat and yet soulfully assembled. An elegant yet deceptively structured rendition of the Barossa Valley."97 points James Suckling: "There are two mataro vineyards present here - a 12-year-old bush vine vineyard planted from cuttings taken from Stockwell, and a 40-odd-year-old vineyard close ...Read More »

1998 Penfolds "RWT" Shiraz Barossa Valley

It offers an evolved, earthy, tobacco and forest floor nose over notes of warm black berries and dried mint. Full bodied, there's a great combination of berry-laced and savory flavor in the mouth supported by firm fine-grained tannins and crisp acid, finishing long."

I have had a lot of fun serving the 2002 blind to guests, and for my taste, this cuvee is the reference point for old vine Grenache produced in Australia. It is extraordinarily elegant for a wine of such power, richness, and intensity. Amazingly delineated, with a dense ruby/purple color as well as a gorgeously sweet nose of smoke, spice box, black cherry liqueur, creme de cassis, licorice, and lavender, it offers impressive balance, purity, opulence, and persistence. ...Read More »

2010 Yalumba "The Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

Medium-bodied but powerful. Blackcurrant, dried tobacco, sawdusty oak and mint. Freshness has been maintained. Tannin, oak, fruit and acid work as one. Beautiful example of a traditional Australian style." (7/2014)95 points Bob Campbell: "If you doubt that Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz make ideal stable-mates, this wine might change your mind.

2005 Yalumba " Museum Release FDR 1A" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "This spent 2 years in American oak barrels made at Yalumba, and is still incredibly vibrant as it moves closer to its 10th birthday. The flavours are of cassis, cherry and plum, finishing with a juicy twist." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Never released as a young wine, this spent two years on oak and then another half decade in Yalumba's marble cellars after bottling before its 2014 release.

Try cellaring for 10 years minimum."

Oh for a screwcap." (7/2008)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Barely budging in hue, the 2006 Amon-Ra Shiraz gives a very deep purple-black color and earthy, gamey aromas of forest floor, moss covered bark, Peking duck skin, mulberries, dried plums, blackberry preserves, incense, cinnamon stick and cloves.

1996 Yalumba "The Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

Creamy American oak aromas cascade from the dense purple-colored, superb 1996. However, in the mouth, the oak is completely absorbed by the wine's meaty, smoky, blackberry and cassis flavors. As it sits in the glass, notes of melted asphalt, dried Provencal herbs, and additional jammy red and black fruits emerge."

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.

2004 Hundred Acre "Ancient Way Vineyard, Summer's Block" Barossa Valley Shiraz

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Incredibly dark in color but light on its feet, this wine somehow manages to hide its 15.5% alcohol under fruit that’s neither overblown or jammy. Spice- and herb-driven complexity is the order of the day, with scents of violets lending an exotic note to the aromas. It's mouthfilling and palate-coating but wonderfully balanced, picking up hints of black olive and espresso on the lingering finish. Good now, but appears to have the stuff to evolve over at least 10–15 years." (11/2007)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby.

2005 Greenock Creek "Seven Acre" Shiraz Barossa Valley

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Seven Acres Shiraz was also aged for 28 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads. Tar, mineral, earth notes, smoked meat, and blueberry scents jump from the glass of this full-bodied but restrained (relatively speaking) Shiraz. On the palate it is a bit more austere than its siblings with a bit more structure and apparent acidity. As a result, it will require longer cellaring and should offer prime drinking from 2015 to 2030. Greenock Creek Vineyard & Cellars, owned by Michael and Annabelle Waugh, remains o... Read More »
