Barossa Valley


The Signature Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2006

Aromas of coffee grounds, cassis, plum and a touch of mint and Dark Chocolate - Descriptors from both the Cabernet and Shiraz components. Soft and supple yet with an inner strength. One of the best examples of Australia’s classic Cabernet Shiraz blends - up there with Penfolds Bin 389. A day later still drinking well - actually better if anything. Lovely balance, really good with a better score of 96 points. — 5 days ago

Powell & Son Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

This is my new Australian Shiraz standard. A natural-winey nose with some brett verified by concrete+foudre. Pepper, olives, minerality, smoke, espresso. All of these are beautifully integrated into fresh fruit. — 2 days ago


Papillon Barossa Valley Grenache Cinsault

Absolutely beautiful red. We drank this with some cheese, would also go beautifully with meat and even on its own. No harsh tannins and such a smooth wine. Can't wait to have more. Very subtle barossa wine. — 11 days ago


No. 1 Barossa Shiraz 2004

Revisiting this one. The hallmark sweet black fruit plus vanilla and coconut American oak of the Barossa is evident. It’s developing into comfortable leathery tones while retaining that dark fruit potency. Tannins have really softened off. Good time to be drinking it - should hold for a while but I won’t be leaving the rest for too long. — 10 days ago

Aphrodite Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

30+ minute decant and could use more. Darkest wine I have ever had color wise. Pretty close to oil, in both color and texture :). Not much with regards to nose other than massive dark cherry. Jammy wine that really coats the palate and the stomach. Wish it had more contrast, as it’s pretty one dimensional, power and dark cherry. You can’t taste the 15.5 OH, but you definitely feel it. This is not a wine to have alone, so drink with friends or else you’ll feel it. 2-3 glasses was all I could stomach because of its magnitude. This wine is the apex of power and robustness. It could probably last for a century, no kidding! Just not my style unfortunately. — 17 days ago

Oscar Semmler Barossa Valley Shiraz 2001

More fruit than funk. This one was not at the very front or back of a lineup consisting of a 2012 Plumpjack, 2005 Cayuse En Cerise, 2013 Sleight of hand Psychedelic, 2009 Alban Reva, 2007 Bevan Bob's Cuvee Dry Stack Syrah, and a 2015 Montagu Hyde. Would definitely enjoy again if someone else was buying. I was very surprised to find a lot fruit still here. The cellartracker drink by window seems to have expired a couple of years ago, yet I did not really get many tertiary notes out of this wine at all. A lot of dark fruit here. Ripe blackberry, boysenberry, hint of earthy grit to the middle and finish. Still seemed to finish with a little bit of resolving tannin. The finish definitely has rounded off. Enjoyed quite a bit, yet if you have this in your cellar I would start opening! — 25 days ago

Really cool bottle. Power of persuasion may have been why I picked up some eucalyptus but it was faint. There was an old graham cracker note too. Ripe blackberry, cassis, and vanilla pipe tobacco. Would like to try one of these younger.


Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz

Chewy, with dark fruit, licorice and leather. Took a while to open up, but it was with the wait. — 3 days ago

Mahe & Ribo Syrah

Incredible nose that attracts attention from across the room. With a little air it is like an afterburner opens up with layer upon layer of bright blue fruit, electric flavors and silky tannins...just WOW — 10 days ago

A nice fruity wine. When you pour into glass, dark fruits and vanila woukd fill your nose. Medium dry. Lack of acidity and tannin. It's suitable for someone who likes sweet or soft taste wine. — 3 days ago

Old Garden Mourvedre 2012

16.5/20 (91/100) Элегантный аромат с нотами цветов, красной сливы, спелых чёрных ягод и ванили. Умеренная кислотность, чуть суховатые танины. Относительно легкий вариант мурведра, если сравнивать его с южной Францией или Испанией. — 12 days ago
