2012 Elderton "Estate" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $27)

93 points James Halliday: "Matured in American and French puncheons for 18 months, it has very good shape and drive to its medium to full-bodied palate, with black cherry, bramble and fruitcake flavours, the mocha oak in balance."

2012 S.C. Pannell "Tinto" Old Vine Grenache-Touriga National McLaren Vale South Australia

93 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* A blend of Garnacha Tinto (Grenache by any other name) and Touriga, part coming from McLaren Vale (Garnacha) and part from the Barossa. 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." (3/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "This is our first Tinto that is made solely from Grenache and Touriga Nacional, two of my favourite red grape varieties. Thi... Read More »

A good commercial cabernet from the right region."92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors’ Choice* Full bodied and richly textured, this is an approachable wine that should nonetheless drink well through at least 2025. Toasted coconut accents cassis and blackberry fruit, folding in hints of vanilla on the long, mouthwatering finish."

This wine over-delivers at every point along the way, starting with its opulent bouquet, with its mix of red and black fruits, then a velvety, rich cassis-driven palate before moving into cedary, lingering finish, there supported by persistent, fine-grained tannins."

2013 Duane Coates Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia

94 points James Halliday: "A 70/30% blend, the grapes picked at different harvest times, but held in stainless steel at low temperatures to settle and combine prior to fermentation on fine solids in new and 1-year-old French oak, held on lees for 9 months. The oak cost, combined with the ultra-low extraction rate through basket pressing (less than half the extraction through a pneumatic press, at around 320l per tonne) make this a very expensive wine to produce, further insult to injury through the small bottling run of 200 dozen."

2012 S.C. Pannell Grenache McLaren Vale

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."

Winemaker's Notes: "The Adelaide Hills is recognised as one of Australia’s finest Sauvignon Blanc growing regions: the altitude, soils and weather patterns seem to draw the best from this variety and in 2014, I was lucky enough to take fruit from one of the finest Sauvignon Blanc vineyards in the region. The 2014 Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc is exceptional. The warm, dry vintage was perfect for this variety and has resulted in a wine with intense flavour concentration, complexity and a great natural acidity.

It's at the upper end of mid-weight but it's mouthfilling. High quality tannin and length. Warm finish but impressive all round."

93 points James Halliday: "Deeply coloured and dark and brooding in nature, with mulberry and cassis fruit, charry oak and cedar on display; the palate is densely packed with tannins and opulent fruit, with the brooding nature of the vintage remaining on the finish; this wine will always be big boned and dark, a direct contrast to the '10." (7/2013)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Bin 169 Cabernet Sauvignon presents an intensely minty nose with undertones of ripe cassis, eucalyptus, cedar and a touch of herbs. Ripe and expressive in the mouth it has bright acid and medium leve ...Read More »

2006 d'Arenberg "Coppermine Road" Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $50+)

94 points James Halliday: "Full-bodied, rich, gutsy wine overflowing with blackcurrant fruit, cassis and tannins; good oak sustains the long finish" (7/2008)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The saturated purple 2006 The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, vanilla, cinnamon, black cherry, and black currant. Impressively structured and well-balanced, this dense Cabernet demands 6-8 years of cellaring after which it will drink beautifully from 2016 to 2036. 93+ points." (2/2009)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Powerful cassis and blueberry aromas are complicated by lavender and pungent herbs. F ...Read More »

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. It’s accessible now, but ideally needs anoth ...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 »

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 »

1995 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

97 points Wine Spectator: "A massive wine, majestic in its proportions,combining power and grace in equal measure. Flavors of plum, blackberry, chocolate and pepper, with hints of cedar, licorice and mint, swirl through the exotic finish. Tannins swarm but don't overwhelm the finish, which echoes all day and night. Best from 2004 through 2020." (12/2000)96 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note." (12/2000)95 points James Halliday: "In the manner of all great stayers, has picked up pace markedly over the past year. Deeply coloured, ripe cherry, spice, vanilla and a hint of licorice rumble through the bouquet; the palate is powerful and ...Read More »

2010 Hewitson "Old Garden" Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

97 points James Halliday: "Clear crimson; a wine that is complete and confident in itself, effortlessly filling the bouquet and palate with its small red and black fruits, a shimmer of tannins throughout, and a lingering finish. Vines planted 1853." (5/2013)96 points James Suckling: "Nick Stock: This ancient vineyard (planted in 1853) is a source of profound and distinctive wine that delivered handsomely in 2010. There's an unmistakably sanguine edge to this: meaty and earthy, darkblue fruits and a wealth of black, graphite-like terroir character. The palate scoops deep and even, really soulful dense tannins ...Read More »
