RunRig Barossa Valley Shiraz 2014

Mmm, talk about sex appeal. These guys know how to make downright sexy Shiraz with density, power, and complexity without being cloying - even at 15.5%, it’s well hidden. The nose is wonderful, with nuances of ash and smoke, mocha and wild berries. The palate is unctuous, deep and delicious with supple black and blue fruits, but balancing acid. An iron-laden finish with red berries on the finish. Really good stuff.. still too young to properly evaluate as this has the stuffing to go for decades imo. — 3 days ago

The Cream Barossa Valley Shiraz 2005

Time has softened this brute, allowing scorched earth and loamy clay-infused earth to impart a northern Rhone vibe and mature silkiness on this superb Shiraz. Seek this out, it has the stuffing and purity of dark, leathery fruit to age. — 8 days ago

Shotfire Ridge Barossa Shiraz

Confession: I am not a huge fan of Australian wines. However, this is a really good wine! It is an inky, full bodied, high alcohol shiraz with strong tannins. The fruit is primarily blackberries and black plums, it's the other aromas I am digging though. It has a lot going on actually but is incredibly balanced! The other strong aromas are tobacco, mushroom, eucalyptus, and olive. Hang on, there is a tertiary aroma of cured meat! Someone get me a rack of lamb, STAT! — 2 days ago

Bin 150 Marananga Barossa Valley Shiraz 2009

Aromas of dark chocolate, black cherry and mocha. Very much like a Penfolds Barossa Shiraz. A rich full bodied red wine with some pruney notes. Some Liquorice/aniseed and bitterness which is a nice counterpoint to the rich fruit. Oak is there but more in balance with the fruit after 9 years of age. I really enjoyed this wine. No wonder Penfolds are killing it in China with Wines like this. — 3 days ago

Broken Quartz Shiraz 2014

Wow. Big fan of this wine. Ripe, juicy red fruits, graphite/pencil shavings, wood chips, mint, and a slight fungal earthiness. On the palate tart cherries, melted dark chocolate, and stewed plums/blackberries. — 18 hours ago

I need to find a way to incorporate the word “gloop” into my own tasting notes. Making it still sound delicious takes skill. Bravo!

Davey Family Wines

Estate Grown McLaren Vale Shiraz 2015

Color of inky purple, with lighter shades on the rim. Nose of some cocoa, flowering note, fresh grape juice, some ripe berries and plummy notes. Taste is some good tannin strength, tobacco leaves, some ripe berries note, a bit zest, and some good acidity. Aftertaste of some lingering subtle acidity note, spice, some oaks, and hint of mineral note. On par. — 10 days ago

Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2005

WOTN for me.
The decanter aka pirex bowl had this beauty singing.
Fruit 100%, colour and tannin all in check. Just a phenomenal pleasure.
