2016 d'Arenberg "The Stump Jump" Shiraz McLaren Vale

90 points Wine Spectator: "Distinctive, with a fresh note of spearmint complementing the juicy core of plum and blackberry flavors. Herb, chai tea and cigar box elements linger on the long, expressive finish, where the tannins firm up but never get in the way. *Best Value* (MW)" (12/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium-bodied 2016 The Stump Jump Shiraz is another terrific bargain. No, it's not a big, plush wine, but it is a crisp, remarkably drinkable mouthful of Shiraz. Red plums and cherries are buttressed by enough tannins so that this c ...Read More »

2016 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

97 points James Halliday: "60% Barossa Valley, 40% Eden Valley grapes, open-fermented with submerged cap, matured for 15 months in new (33%) and used French hogsheads. Deeply colored; this is at once full-bodied and elegant, not a common marriage with young red wines with decades in front of them. The flavors are all black: blackberry, blackcurrant, black cherry, earth and licorice. The old vines have also provided ripe tannins, the whole theme resonated with oak a la Grange."

2015 d'Arenberg "The Dead Arm" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $64)

96 points James Halliday: "This is a particularly good Dead Arm, its alcohol miraculously the same as the '14, but however that may be, it has an elegance to its mouthfeel and lingering finish." (08/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Black cherries and black olives mark the nose of the 2015 The Dead Arm Shiraz, d'Arenberg's flagship bottling. It's a blend of older and younger vines from different sites, depending on what the fruit has to offer. Full-bodied, concentrated and firmly structured, it's nevertheless velvety on the long finish, p ...Read More »

2016 Thorn-Clarke "Eden Trail" Riesling Eden Valley (Previously $18)

95 points James Halliday: "Quartz-white; a wine born to rise to the very top, its finesse, purity and balance the foundations for its slow, long-term development. The balance is the outcome of the citrus/apple fruit and its finely etched acidity." (08/2017) 91 points James Suckling: "Green-hued straw. High-pitched aromas of grapefruit, pear skin, lemongrass and honeysuckle carry a vibrant mineral overtone. Nervy and linear on the palate, offering juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors that deepen steadily through the midpalate. Shows emphatic mineral c ...Read More »

2016 Hentley Farm Shiraz Barossa Valley Top Pick!
2016 Hentley Farm Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "There's no magic in this wine other than the very high quality of the grapes (and the low price). The colour is typical Hentley Farm, deep, but with a vivid crimson-purple rim; the expressive black fruits bouquet and the medium to full-bodied, richly textured palate following the same path. The blackberry essence flavours are intense and luscious, bright and fresh." (08/2017) 92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberries, blueberries and hints of licorice follow through to a full body, with very fine tannins and a soft fi ...Read More »

2016 Penfolds "Bin 28 Kalimna" Shiraz South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "Matured for 12 months in used American oak. Like all the Penfolds '16 red wines, flawless colour and clarity heralds a bouquet that leaps out of the glass with a heady perfume of roses, bramble, spice and licorice. The palate duly delivers an effortless wave of dark chocolate, cherry and licorice.

2016 Schwarz "META" Grenache Barossa South Australia (Previously $20)

90 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, 86% whole bunches, wild-fermented, neither fined or filtered. Very light colour, not much more than rose. Grenache is like pinot noir: the depth (or lack) of colour can fool those who jump to conclusions. The spicy, juicy red fruits are not confected, the finish fresh." (08/2017) K&L Notes: Grenache from Bethany and Marananga in the Barossa Valley. Wild fermented. 86% whole bunches. There’s a line of redcurrant and sweet raspberry, on both the nose and palate, but it quickly turns dry, smoky, almost sandy. This i ...Read More »

2016 Angove Family Winemakers Shiraz McLaren Vale

91 points James Halliday: "McLaren Vale shiraz from mature vines across a range of vineyards. All fermented as whole berries before being basket pressed to mostly older French oak. It's a supple shiraz with plum and blackberry notes melting effortless into smoky, cedary oak. It sits at the upper end of medium weight which, combined with its slinky softness, makes for effortless drinking.

2014 Bethany Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley (Previously $30)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "All of the Bethany releases have lower-than-typical (for Barossa) alcohol levels, including the 2014 Shiraz, which weighs in at a reasonable 13.9% alcohol. Perhaps as a result, it's heavily skewed toward red-fruit flavors, with hints of cranberries, red currants and raspberries. Medium-bodied, cool, streamlined and fresh, it's a solid effort that would probably look a lot better with food than in a lineup of bigger, riper, richer wines. (JC)" (08/2018) Wine & Spirits: "There’s a gentle side to this shiraz, a soft texture ...Read More »

Unashamedly full-bodied, soft and well-balanced, it has a great concentration of ripe black fruit and baking spice flavors, finishing with good persistence. Drink now-2021 (LPB)" (08/2017)

Crisp acidity leaves the mouth fresh, and thirsting for more." (08/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Crushed stone, citrus rind and strawberries all mingle on the nose of Hentley Farm's 2017 Rose.

It has the succulence of Langhorne Creek, but with a raft of flowery/spicy notes not so common in the region. Mocha oak adds another dimension, cuddling up to the plump tannins. Hedonistic? You bet."

The transition from tasting shiraz to cabernet is - as it should be- immediate and striking, in no way softened by the use of some American oak along with the French. Cassis, olive (green and black), together with bramble and bay leaf, are as fragrant as they are potent in the mouth. Needs a year or two to settle down."

It's pleasant now, its balance and freshness admirable, but it's the potential for flavour and complexity development that is eye - or mouth - catching. It's specific to this wine, the blend common enough, but often bland." (08/2017) 92 points James Suckling: "A fresh and lively white with sliced lemon and pear character.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2001 Cape d'Estaing Shiraz Kangaroo Island South Australia (94RP, 91JH).

It boasts an opaque purple color in addition to a complex perfume of blackberry liqueur intermixed with licorice, smoke, charcoal, and a hint of wood. Full-bodied as well as remarkably measured, elegant, and restrained for its power and mass, this brilliant achievement somehow walks the tightrope between excessive power and overly processed politeness. It combines intense flavor with tremendous finesse – an extremely difficult accomplishment. The good news continues as there are 2,500 cases of this brilliant Shiraz.
