2014 Torbreck "Woodcutter's" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points James Halliday: "It struts its stuff in most impressive fashion; black berried fruits, anise, wood spice, all served sweet and voluptuous, with fresh red berries as the icing." (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. Long, stylish finish." (10/2016) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Juicy, with maple syrup-scented wild blackberry and currant flavors that are effusive and generous.

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."

Spicy tannin plays stylishly through the back half of the wine. Just enough depth to give it a bit of gravity." 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editor's Choice* An outstanding effort in a difficult vintage, these old vines (the oldest were planted in 1889) have turned out a super wine.

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

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."

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) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "It's nice to see the quality of this wine reach new heights, as it's still relatively affordable within the Henschke context. The blend includes Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The 2013 shows a slightly austere side, an aristocratic reserve, but the flavors are classic. Pencil Sh ...Read More »

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.

2013 Hewitson "Old Garden" Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

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.
