Hill of Grace Vineyard Shiraz 2008

Voted WOTN for good reason. This has been a bucket list wine for me. Some sections of this famous vineyard were planted in 1860 but all of the vines are ridiculously old. It’s bombastic and really stands out from the crowd. Very expressive both on the nose and on the palate. Full bodied and multi layered. Creamy and rich texture. Dark berries, plums, coffee, cigar, orange peel, eucalyptus, soy, cigar box and an array of oriental spices. Probably at a peak right now, such a joy to drink. — 7 days ago

The Bogan Barossa Valley Shiraz 2007

Beautiful Aussie Shiraz that is drinking great right now. As is typical, does not show any signs of its actual 15 year age. Took about 2 hr decant to fully open up and show its bright, deeply layered fruit with a nice earthy backbone. Could def go another 5-7 years! — a month ago

RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz 1997

Twenty-five years old. What a special treat! Wine had a deep crimson color (no hints of brown at all) with a slightly brick rim. Bright aromas of dark cherry, chocolate, mushroom, menthol and roasted herbs. Pallet featured all of the above, plus some baking spices, eucalyptus and plum. Quite earthy. Reasonably long finish and very silky tannins. The wine has mellowed but there still plenty of fruit, texture and acidity. Glad I held on to this one for a while. — 9 days ago

Stonewell Barossa Shiraz 2006

See 2 previous notes from 2019 and 2021. Dusty notes of plum and red and black berries. Can still taste remnants of the oak which had largely integrated. Coffee grounds. Rich and medium to full bodied on the palate. Notes of chocolate and blackberry. This wine screams old vine Barossa Shiraz which is what it is. I will try and leave the last one for a year or 2 or 3. — 23 days ago

Amon-Ra Barossa Valley Unfiltered Shiraz 2018

Oh it’s Shiraz, no doubt, but moderately dense for the style, and such an elegant brute. This bad girl is drinking well after a couple hours decant. — 9 days ago

Two Hands

Bella's Garden Barossa Valley Shiraz 2005

Catching up on old notes. Drank this magnum with extended family on Christmas Eve. A rich ripe full bodied style showing plum and chocolate. Two Hands seems like one of those labels like Mollydooker which are better known in the USA than in Australia. — a month ago
