RWT Bit 798 Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Okay! Father’s Day. Get the bbq out. Cook some ribs!! What better than a cheek tantalizing, jammy, Shiraz from Barroso Valley!! This one took some time to come together. Rich extracts of dark cherry, figs and mulberry. Unfortunately the vanilla, probably from the American oak, was overwhelming and threw the wine off balance. It took nearly three hours before it settled down and became fully integrated. At that time I was able to pick of the fine and potent tannins that gave it depth and character. — 3 days ago

Stonewell Barossa Shiraz 2015

There’s a lot to like in the bold Shiraz. Plum, jam, leather and cigars. Would be great to see this again in another 10-15 years — 10 days ago

Wow - the freshness, the color, the soaring rich liqueur aromas, pure decadence… Chambord, truffle, licorice, cough drop, vanilla, truffle, absolutely insane. Smooth rich luxurious - had this out of barrel and on release and it is still youthful. — 6 days ago

Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019

Decanted for 24 hours so that it could open up as it’s so young.
Incredible flavour, complex, red fruits but not too bold and some nuisance too.
Time will serve this well. A winemaker who dances to his own tune and making great music.

The Laird Barossa Valley Shiraz 2005

Are you kidding me? This is among the most flamboyant and hedonistic wines I’ve ver tried sampled. Would be a real struggle to drink a few glasses. — 13 days ago

Ben Schild Reserve Single Vineyard Shiraz 2015

Warm and toasty with a bit of a back of the throat cayenne pinch. It’ll week on the structure but good juice and warm round fruit flavors. Good vanilla and some baking spices as well. Big and brassy, hot as in the alcohol coming off of this thing is noticeable. — an hour ago

Baby Tui Syrah 2012

This wine need decanting maybe 4 hours. When opened at the beginning rather harsh and bitter muted taste. The the strong red fruit and rhubhart emerge and then more black fruit, eculpytus and earth taste. At the end it become a much better wine — 5 days ago

Moppa Hill Block 6 Shiraz 2012

Big and inky Barossa heaps of fruit and oak but not overpowering like some from the region. Had 2012 in 2021 but would not lose anything with another 5-10 years careful cellaring. — 11 days ago
