Its huge body, marvelous integration of acidity, tannin, and alcohol, and stunning finish of 60+ seconds are impressive.

2012 Langmeil "Fifth Wave" Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia

The Fifth Wave Grenache comes from a once-neglected old vine vineyard in Lyndoch. Langmeil winemaker Paul Lindner saw the potential for the varietal from this vineyard, and helped rejuvenate the site. From the winery: 'Aromas of dark cherry and raspberry fruits mingle with sweet spice, vanilla, hints of savoury roastiness and white pepper nuances. Ripe, red berry fruit flows onto the palate, melding into lovely sweet and briary spice. The finish lingers on a pepper and spice note with typical chalky and youthfully firm tannins."

On the palate this full-bodied wine somehow manages to combine power with elegance. The sweet tannins are well-concealed and the finish lasts for at least one minute. It will provide pleasure for 25 years but who will be that patient?

2006 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia Back In Stock!
2006 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Impenetrable colour; a full-bodied palate, stacked to the gills with layer-upon-layer of blackberry, prune, licorice and plum fruit, yet the tannin and oak are not overdone, nor is the alcohol. 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. Very crisp, concentrated and full with medium-firm velvety tannins, it presents a slightly wa ...Read More »

2002 Elderton "Command" Single Vineyard Shiraz Barossa Valley Back In Stock!
2002 Elderton "Command" Single Vineyard Shiraz Barossa Valley

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. It’s accessible now, but ideally needs another 2-4 years of bottle age, and should keep for two decades." (10/2006)94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Powerful, almost candied aromas of boysenberry, mulberry and dark c ...Read More »

1999 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "Concentrated blackberry and licorice fruit, the oak perfectly integrated. A powerful, masculine style, a touch more austere than the '98." (7/2003)94 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* ...Tremendously classy, offering smoky, earthy blackberry, plum and currant fruit that compete effectively against cedary oak on the long finish. The flavors gain with each sip, fanning out impressively. It's tight now, but it could age beautifully." (9/2004)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "An excellent wine as it always is, but this vintage of Grange is one that isn't just built for aging, it requires it. Its flavors and aromas ...Read More »

1997 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

94 points Jancis Robinson: "Medium to full red, with just a touch of purple remaining; powerful, complex dark fruits, chocolate and savoury lemon/vanilla oak on the bouquet, then a similarly powerful palate where earth and chocolate join the chorus of flavours promised by the bouquet; persistent tannins, of course. (Date tasted, June 19, 2002)"94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Grange (a blend of 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon) looks to be a classic Grange, although slightly softer and more forward than the backward 1996. The saturated purple-colored 1997 offers a gorgeously sweet nose of blackberry li ...Read More »

2001 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is always a treat to taste Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds’ Grange cuvee (the word Hermitage has been dropped because of legal issues). The 2001 Grange is one of the few vintages of this cuvee to be composed of 100% Shiraz (the others being 1951, 1952, 1963, 1999, and 2000). Aged 17 months in 100% American oak, and tipping the scales at 14.5% alcohol, the 2001 is undeniably one of the top examples of this wine. At this stage, it appears to eclipse the 1998 and 1996. Inky/blue/purple to the rim, with a stunning perfume of blueberries, blackberri ...Read More »

2010 Sons Of Eden "Romulus" Barossa Valley Shiraz

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 »
