2012 Yalumba "The Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

98 points Sam Kim: "A formidable wine of outstanding richness, yet it’s sophisticated at the same time. 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." (8/2015) 96 points James Halliday: "Spent 20 months in high quality French, Hungarian and American oak barrels made in Yalumba's own onsite cooperage. This is one of the richest and mo ...Read More »

2013 Thistledown "Thorny Devil" Old Vine Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $25)

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Two MWs - Giles Cooke and Fergal Tynan - founded this Adelaide Hills winery n 2010, joining forces with winemaker Peter Leske of Revenir. This is their first vintage of the Thorny Devil, from an old-vine, dry-grown vineyard in Barossa, which they ferment as mostly whole berries without added yeast, then age in old oak barrels. It's a wine with serious structure, the tarry tannins carrying fresh cherry and cranberry flavors without any sense of excess alcohol. There's old-vine complexity in the finish, which lasts, clean and savory." (2/2016) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choi ...Read More »

2014 Hentley Farm "The Stray Mongrel" Grenache Blend Barossa Valley

94 points James Halliday: "James Halliday's Wine Companion - Winery Of The Year 2015! 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. * Special Value Selection* The 2014 Stray Mongrel is a bits and pieces 58/38/4% blend of grenache, shiraz and zinfandel, picked and fermented separately. The red berry fruits of the grenache and darker fruits of the shiraz have come together very well, particularly with its fresh finish. All a bit mysterious how this happened."

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 "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 »

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.

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. This is a very classy 2013 Shiraz!

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 »

2012 Torbreck "The Steading" Grenache-Shiraz-Mataro Barossa Valley South Australia

Full-bodied and yet wonderfully poised in the mouth, the silky tannins and refreshing acid support the generous flesh throughout the long, spicy finish. 93+ (LPB)" (6/2015) K&L Notes: 94 points Wine Front Magazine: "Heady out of the glass - spikes of hot, warm fruit, black coffee, liquorice, dried fruits.

2014 Kalleske "Moppa" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Biodynamic)

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.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 70% Grenache, 25% Shiraz and 5% Mataro. Medium garnet in color, the 2014 Grenache Shiraz Mataro has a pleasant earthy / meaty character over the core of dried mulberries, kirsch and spice box plus a waft of potpourri.

2013 Langmeil "The Freedom 1843" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Previously $130)

93 points Vinous: "(raised for two years in French oak hogsheads and barriques, two-thirds of them new): Inky ruby. 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. Velvety tannins sneak in late to add grip. (JR)" (3/2016)

2013 Henschke "Keyneton Euphonium" Shiraz-Cabernet Barossa Valley South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "A blend of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc which says more about the vineyard and the Henschke winemaking expertise than the fruit composition. All the flavours are, as usual, fused together, oak and tannins providing context." (3/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Henschke's 2013 Keyneton Euphonium is deep garnet-purple in color and exudes lovely, expressive blackberries and cherries on the nose, with menthol, pepper, anise and cloves—plus a waft of fragrant earth.

2003 Torbreck "RunRig" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate’s flagship cuvee is the virtually perfect 2003 Run Rig. Made from 8 separate Barossa vineyards (ranging in age from 94 to 158 years), it is primarily Shiraz with 4-5% co-fermented Viognier included in the blend. The wine was aged in French oak of which 60% is new. The sensational, inky/purple-tinged 2003 exhibits a stunningly sweet nose of blackberries, blueberries, litchi nuts, smoked meats, and a hint of apricots. Elegant yet super-powerful, rich, concentrated, and long, it is a tour de force in winemaking as well as a modern classic example ...Read More »

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. Still youthful, it promises to age easily for ...Read More »

Intense red and black berried flavours, sweet but not confected and with layer after layer of savoury spice, tannin and assorted other delights. Terrific grenache. Smoky, almost gravelly aftertaste. Length." (2/2015) 93 points Vinous: "Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2013 Annexus has a nose of kirsch, red roses and raspberry preserves with hints of clove studded orange peel and dusty earth.

2002 Torbreck "RunRig" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Extraordinarily opulent and rich, but playing it closer to the vest than the 2001, it gets my nod as one of the most remarkable wines made in either the Southern or Northern Hemisphere. An inky/purple color is accompanied by a sumptuous bouquet of apricots, honeysuckle, black raspberries, blackberries, licorice, and a hint of roasted meats. The wood has been soaked up by the wine’s extraordinary concentration....Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020+.

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 »

1999 Greenock Creek "Roennfeldt Road" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 236 cases of the 1999 Shiraz Roennfeldt Road (also from 65-year-old vines). Although it pushes ripeness to the limit, it does not reveal any raisiny/pruny characteristics. It offers wonderful freshness, good acidity, superb intensity, and copious quantities of blackberry, cassis, crushed rock, floral, and spicy new oak notes. Massive and concentrated with perfect equilibrium, it can be drunk now and over the next 25 years. Kudos to one of the world’s finest wine producers!

1999 Chris Ringland Shiraz Barossa Range South Australia

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Chris Ringland (formerly known as Three Rivers Shiraz), is aged 42 months in 100% new French oak, and is rarely racked until bottling, represents an extraordinary expression of Barossa Shiraz. The intense 1999, released in 2004, demonstrates that this vintage is somewhat underrated after all the hype over 1998. From a vineyard planted in 1910, its inky/purple color is accompanied by aromas of lavender, lard, smoke, licorice, blackberries, cassis, espresso roast, chocolate, and pepper.

In an earlier, 96-point review: This is a re-review of the 2000 Shiraz since I significantly underated it previously. It is clearly the Barossa wine of the vintage, and has put on considerable weight since it was bottled. This stunning cuvee, which used to be known as the Three Rivers Shiraz, was aged 33 months in French 300 liter hogsheads.

Yields were a minuscule 14 hl/ha (about 1 ton per acre). Saturated opaque purple/black, it has a remarkably kinky, exotic perfume of fresh asphalt, pencil lead, smoke, pepper, game, blueberry and black raspberry. Full-bodied and voluptuous in the mouth, the wine is dense and packed, with amazing purity, sweet tannins, and a complex collection of sensory stimuli.
