Wow. This is aged Australian Shiraz at its finest. So rich, dense, voluptuous and flavor packed...all at 17/18 yrs old! As it was being poured, you could smell the eucalyptus/mint notes from half a table away. Incredibly perfumed, alongside dark chocolate covered cherries and blue and black fruit compote. On the palate it retained the Andes mint-like sweetness with black cherry liqueur, tar, mixed berry pie and fig. Sporting an ABV of 16.5% (!), it didn’t come across hot at all. Powered through being open a couple hours without a problem. No rush here. Fantastic! Thanks for sharing @joe leatherwood . — 5 days ago

@Shay A One of my favourite Barossa Shiraz. Had a 1998 once which was memorable. Not cheap but ticks all the boxes as your detailed tasting note covers. Great stuff.

Bella's Garden Shiraz 2016

I’ve always enjoyed this selection. The brooding dark fruits, the graphite, clove, and espresso, and the Luxardo syrup - it’s all very delicious. — 12 days ago

Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz 2009

Vintage 2009 / good concentration. Brushwood in smell, as well as bouillon. Complex smell, multi layered. It opens like a peacock tail. Cherries in a wonderful mature and yet vivid taste. Elegance. Long aftertaste that impresses me. — 19 hours ago

@Peter van den Besselaar A high quality Barossa producer using old vine material.

The Armagh Clare Valley Shiraz 1994

Very ripe on the nose, a bit caramel. Lots of game, leather and spices. Drink now, won’t get any better in my opinion. — 13 hours ago

Shiraz 2012

Far too young, but it sings already
Nice sour cherry with white pepper and pencil lead and a little balsamic too
European tannin of the best kind
I'd say silky here
Super long and intense
I'd say we should forget ii in the bottom of the cellar for easily 15 to 20 years, but if by mistake you popped it opened give me a shout

St. Henri Shiraz 2015

Okay. We took a break from the Mendoza Malbec, Cab Franc and Cab Sauv by escaping to South Australia for the night drinking this awesome Shiraz we brought with us visiting the Ballard’s in Buenos Aires! Peppered blood! That came to mind drinking it. Ripe raspberry, deep dark cherry and dried figs drenched in earthy tannin and notes of clove. Great time! Had to ignore that look Tammy gave me when I poured the last little bit just in my glass for...you know... for convenience 😊 — 7 days ago
