2012 Woodstock Estate Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $25)

Spice-shot berries, black and red, a coating of nuts and cream giving the flavours a sheen. Amaro-like infusions. Sophisticated and yet generally accessible. Beautiful, grainy, peppery length, seamed by ultra-fine tannin. Poster child of savoury-accented Australian red wine."

Immediately perfumed and expressive but with the grunt of tannin and fruit to give it real substance. Saturated plum, soy, five spice and smoky, musky oak.

(1/2008)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Shiraz 'Hillside' was aged for 28 months in mostly American oak. Deep purple in color, it has an enticing, expressive bouquet of smoke, bacon, game, and blueberry. Opulent on the palate, the wine is full-bodied, layered, spicy, ripe, and mouth-filling.

It is a joyously schizophrenic blend, half saying drink without any introspection or hesitation, the other inviting deconstruction of the very different spice influences, and also the differing appeal of the raspberry and cherry fruit flavours."

97 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked grapes were open-fermented and hand-plunged before spending 14 months in used French puncheons; Pannell recommends decanting several hours before drinking. Medium crimson colour introduces a wine that is eager to display its fragrant red fruits on the bouquet and on entry to the palate before persistent, fine-grained tannins make their presence felt. They are fundamental to both the present and future character of the wine, which will change with age, but in absolute terms be neither of higher or lesser quality than it is now."

Great value." (9/2013)91 points Wine & Spirits: "**Best Buy and one of the Year's Best Australian Shiraz** This grows in a warm spot in a high-elevation vineyard otherwise planted to Riesling.

Will flower profusely with 2 or 3 years in bottle." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "The truly wondrous thing about wine is that speaks of where it comes from.

100 points James Suckling: "The 2010 Grange arrives with much expectation and does not disappoint. 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. The palate has super deep tannins that fan out through flavorsome black fruits. These are purposeful tannins; they bristle on the palate, tantalizing and assertive yet pla ...Read More »

2012 Innocent Bystander Syrah Yarra Valley Victoria

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(made with 40% whole clusters): Brilliant ruby. Assertive aromas of dark berry preserves, incense and Asian spices, with a suave potpourri nuance coming out with aeration. Juicy, focused blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are given lift by tangy acidity and a hint of cracked pepper. Shows excellent clarity and thrust on the finish, which clings with spicy urgency and gentle tannins." (8/2014)91 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh, expressive and light-footed, with delicate hints of sandalwood, black tea and mint layered around a lithe core of blackberry and licorice, lingering with ...Read More »

2002 Marquis Phillips "Sarah's Blend" South Eastern Australia

93 Points, Robert Parker: "The 2002 Sarah’s Blend (a 6,000 case blend of 62% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 18% Merlot) boasts an inky purple color, full body, great intensity, and plenty of toasty, smoky vanillin notes intermixed with hints of melted licorice, figs, plums, blackberries, and currants. Dense, low in acidity, and corpulent, it is a luscious southern Australian fruit bomb of considerable flesh and intensity. Readers seeking delicate, restrained, introspective, European-styled reds should look elsewhere....Two of South Australia’s leadi... Read More »

2012 Nugan Estate "Stomper's" Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Riverina

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby. Tight, sharply focused nose displays scents of blackberry, cassis, graphite and mint, lifted by a lavender topnote. Dense yet lively on the palate, offering intense dark fruit flavors that become sweeter with air. Supple tannins frame the incisive finish, which lingers with very good fruit-driven intensity."

2013 Dalwhinnie "The Hut" Pinot Noir Pyrenees Top Pick!
2013 Dalwhinnie "The Hut" Pinot Noir Pyrenees

94 points James Halliday: "An opulent, full-bodied pinot noir, flexing its muscles from the bouquet through the palate and the finish in particular; it is the finish that saves the wine from the 'dry red' description, the ultimate insult to a pinot noir; here there is a vibrant and intense line of dark cherry and plum that is pure pinot. It will age very well indeed." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Wine writer Huon Hooke says, "Sit back and watch, as Dalwhinnie etches a name for itself, not only among the great wines of Australia, but the world."

2012 Henschke "Keyneton Euphonium" Shiraz-Cabernet Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Deep, bright crimson-purple; a lusciously rich and complex wine with red, blue and black fruits overflowing from the glass both on the bouquet and palate; surely the richest and most full-bodied Euphonium so far made. Will live for an inordinately long time.." (7/2014)94 points James Suckling: "A blend of shiraz (65%), cabernet sauvignon (20%), merlot (10%) and cabernet franc (5%) with a more serious nose that has dark blackberry fruit and a spicy edge, some graphite and distinctly cabernet notes, it shows confident ripeness too. The palate is rich, fleshy and even, showing plenty ...Read More »

2012 Ruggabellus "Efferus" Mataró / Syrah / Grenache Barossa Valley

97 points Decanter: "Two Mataro (Mourvedre) sites are blended with 15% Syrah and 9% Grenache. Just 2,466 bottles made. 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 »

2012 Duane Coates Touriga Nacional Langhorne Creek

Winemaker's Notes: "Inky crimson red in colour. The lifted aromas show bergamot and fruit pastille notes amid perfume, mulberry and savoury oak. The generous palate displays ripe red and black fruit notes along with hints of sous bois and a dash of mocha. Soft, velvety tannins support the long finish. Drink now to 2025. 140 cases made. The Touriga grapes were picked in late March and fermented for two weeks on skins using natural yeasts. Maturation in 30% new French oak utilised a mix of barriques and puncheons. Two rackings and regular topping are the o... Read More »

2010 Dalwhinnie "Moonambel" Cabernet Sauvignon Pyrenees Victoria

95 points James Halliday: "Classic Dalwhinnie style with abundant aromas, fruit on the fore-palate likewise; tightens up on the finish with tannin grip that will relax as the years go by." (12/2011)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Moonamble Cabernet Sauvignon offers a nose of cassis, wild blueberries, toasty oak and yeast extract with subtle suggestions of pencil lead and chocolate. Full-bodied with a nice backbone of medium to firm, grainy tannins and very crisp acidity, it has a long savory finish. Delicious in this youthful stage, it should develop gracefully and drink to 20 ...Read More »

2012 Yangarra Estate "Old Vine" Grenache McLaren Vale

94 points James Halliday: "Scented elegance. Nothing overly sweet to the profile here. Redcurrant, cherry, aniseed, earth/spice. Tangy. Not thick or dense, but it makes an impression. Tannin is internally routed in a completely seamless/velvety fashion." K&L Notes: This tiny production wine (just 574cs) is from Yangarra estate's almost 70 year old Grenache vines. Planted in 1946, these non-trellised, head trained vines grow in deep weathered sand stone soils. They are dry farmed and produce limited yields of beautifully aromatic, complex and layered fruit. After farming these old vines organic... Read More »
