2012 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $42) Top Pick!
2012 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $42)

96 points Decanter: "For me, the best edition of this well-crafted Shiraz. The nose is ripe and mellow, with layers of rich blackberry and plum. There's a wealth of spice and soulful, earthy depth and a smoky tarry edge too. The palate is smoothly honed, with a dense mid-palate that offers bright blackberry and plum flavors. Deceptively study tannins carry hauntingly throughout and merit considerable cellaring if you can manage to keep your hands off it! Drink 2018-2030."

2006 Mollydooker "Blue Eyed Boy" Shiraz South Australia

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Shiraz 'Blue Eyed Boy' is predominantly Padthaway fruit. Purple-colored, it has an intense aromatic display of smoke, violets, mulberry, blueberry, and chocolate. This leads to a full-bodied, plush, wine with layers of ripe, spicy black fruits, excellent focus and delineation. The tannins are well-concealed but this wine has enough stuffing to evolve for 6-8 years. Drink it through 2025."

2012 Hewitson "Ned & Henry's" Shiraz-Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "The grapes were grown on Barossa Valley terra rossa: oxidised iron red soils over limestone, and the wine was matured in used French oak. The vivid colour of the wine attests to its moderate alcohol, as does the joyful display of red and black fruits; the tannins are supple, the oak subtle but evident. Fantastic value."

Great intensity and balance in a rather modest medium-full body with great graininess to the tannins and plenty of freshness. It finishes long. Note that no 2011 Cluster M45 was produced.

Thick and smooth with good balanced fruit weight." Vineyard Sources: The Langhorne Creek fruit was harvested from two vineyards located on the Bremer River planted in rich very deep fertile river loam / silt and gravel. The Barossa grapes were harvested from two vineyards located near Nuriootpain the Light Pass and Ebenezer areas in the Barossa Valley floor.

Saturated purple in color, it reveals a splendid bouquet of smoke, pencil lead, bacon, grilled meat, and blueberry. Supple-textured and opulent, this full-bodied Shiraz offers a range of spicy, complex flavors, superb balance, and enough well-concealed tannin to support 5-7 years of additional cellaring.

Sappy, penetrating and focused, offering sweet dark fruit and floral pastille flavors that gain weight with air. Refreshingly pure and lively on the finish, with the floral and spice notes strongly repeating."

(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.

2010 Sons Of Eden "Romulus" Barossa Valley Shiraz (Previously $70)

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 »

It presents a superb perfume of cedar, violets, lavender, smoked meat, game, black raspberry, and blueberry. This leads to a voluptuous, velvety-textured, layered, super concentrated Shiraz in perfect balance with well-concealed tannins and a 60-second, pure finish.

Opaque purple/black in color, it gives up a lavish perfume of smoke, mineral, game, bacon, and blueberry that leaps from the glass. Thick, opulent, and intense, it coats the mouth with savory fruit, spices, and a hint of chocolate. Seamless on the palate, it nevertheless conceals enough structure to evolve for a decade for those able to resist its immediate come-on. It should be at its best from 2012 to 2030." (2/2009)

It was mostly grown at Gundagai (92%) with input from grapes grown in the Canberra and Hilltops wine regions. 25% whole bunches.

A deeper, richer, fuller-bodied offering that spent time in equal parts French and American oak, it possesses an opaque purple color, great intensity, and a fabulously sweet nose of blackberries, cassis, asphalt, earth, and oak.

Its stunning purple color is accompanied by exceptionally sweet aromas of blackberry liqueur intermixed with barbecue spices, an endearing, smoky earthiness, pepper, roasted meats, and coffee. Huge, massive, unctuously textured, and extraordinarily youthful, this impressive wine is a candidate for perfection. It should c ...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 »

2004 Mitolo "GAM" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged 18 months in primarily French oak, the 2004 Shiraz G.A.M. is an exceptional example of a precise yet full-flavored, concentrated Shiraz. Its gorgeous perfume of blueberries, blackberries, camphor, licorice, and pain grille is followed by an inky/blue/purple-colored wine offering superb purity, full-bodied richness, and gorgeous depth as well as texture. This fabulous effort is another example of Ben Glaetzer’s brilliant talents. It should drink well for 15 years. (RP)" (10/2005)94 points James Halliday: "**Five Stars** Deep colour, excellent hue; concentrated and rich red and ...Read More »

2004 Shirvington Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The sensational 2004 Shiraz’s inky/purple color is followed by aromas of graphite, blueberries, and creme de cassis. It offers wonderful purity, plenty of stuffing, toasty espresso notes from new oak barrels, admirable intensity, and a tremendous finish. Drink it over the next decade. Former winemakers Sarah and Sparky Marquis have left Shirvington and the wine is now being made by Kim Johnston. Little has changed, although the 2004s appear to be more streamlined and delicate than their 2003 and 2002 counterparts." (10/2005)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark purple. Ripe blackberry an ...Read More »

Drink now through 2015" (12/2007)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Powerful raspberry and blackberry aromas are complicated by Asian spices and fresh flowers, with a suave overlay of sexy oak. Creamy dark fruit flavors display a brooding quality; this took on blueberry and creme de cassis qualities with air. A weighty, layered shiraz with a long, sweet finish featuring slow-mounting tannin ...Read More »

2002 Henry's Drive Shiraz

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dense purple-colored 2002 Shiraz is even better than the Cabernet Sauvignon. Pure blackberry liqueur intermixed with camphor, lead pencil shavings, pepper, and earth notes jump from the glass of this full-bodied, unctuously-textured monster. This opulent, hedonistic 2002 boasts great richness, intensity, and length. How will it age? Although still youthful, it offers fabulous drinking at present, should improve over the next 3-4 years, and last for a decade thereafter. However, there is no reason to defer your gratification.

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest of this trio is the flagship cuvee, the 2004 Shiraz produced from 80- to 150-year-old dry farmed vineyards in the northern Ebenezer sector of the Barossa. Aged 16 months in French oak and American hogsheads, this larger-than-life, fascinating wine (cropped at .25 to 1 ton of fruit per acre) offers big, sweet, blackberry and cassis characteristics intermixed with notions of smoke, licorice, and pain grille. A wine of amazing extract, richness, and full-bodied power, with great purity as well as balance, this stunning offering should age effortl ...Read More »
