Ares Barossa Valley Shiraz 2013

I met Michael Twelftree and we were discussing his flagship Shiraz, Ares, representing the very best parcels in each vintage and is sselected through an intense barrel classification process. A big powerful wine with complex aromas. On the palate blackberry and ripe cherry flavors, smoky oak, great balance, fine tannins, lingering endind with fruit and oak. Has room to age. Very nice. Tasting Sample. — 7 days ago

Bin No 1 Great Western Shiraz 2014

Love the variation to Shiraz in this country! No appellation d'origine contrôlée here :) generous fruit for a cool-climate Victorian, dark, a medium bodied balance of juicy-but-lean, sandy tannin with a delicious savoury finish. — 15 days ago

Black Ops Shiraz Saperavi Blend 2016

So smooth with a slight fruity but not overwhelming fruit after taste. Highly recommend. We tasted at the cellar door and had a few bottles sent home to enjoy. Has a full bodied taste but light after taste. — 11 days ago

Angels' Share McLaren Vale Shiraz 2016

Deep dark red with aromas of fresh beery fruits with an earthy mineral expression. On the palate rich ripe fruit, blackberry & blueberry with hints of dried cherry. Well balanced with slightly firm tannins and lively acidity. Lingering finish ending complex with gentle oak, herb, mineral and earthy character. Will improve with short term aging, but don’t wait too long as you might be disappointed! Very nice Shiraz! Tasting Sample! — 11 days ago

The Signature Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2005

Yalumbas Signature Series always produces a faithful rendition of the Cabernet Shiraz blend - the Cab in the slight majority. Nose of mint and black fruits. Quite dense - still with a short term future despite some professional opinions on the drinking window. On the palate blackberry - soft tannins nearly fully resolved. Nearly as good as Penfolds Bin 389 without the cellaring future. — 7 days ago

Single Site Swingbridge Vineyard Shiraz 2005

A very dark rich crimson colour for 14 years. Notes of SO2 and asparagus which persisted over 3 hours after decanting but no effect on the palate. Medium bodied showing the cooler origins of the Eden Valley over the Barossa Valley floor. Coffee grounds, chocolate and savoury berry characters with M+ Intensity. This was a period where Yalumba was experimenting with single sites trying to show the different influences of different terroirs they had under their control. Burgundy like you might say. They didn’t persist with the idea and these bottlings but a useful exercise nevertheless. — 13 days ago

Amon-Ra Barossa Valley Unfiltered Shiraz 2013

A truck load of blackberries, baking spices and balsamic. The mouthfeel is luxurious, like wrapping you palate in velvet. A thick, massive wine and yet, it stops short of ponderous. Not really my style of wine but undeniably well made. Would be really good with grilled meat. Can drink now or years and years to come. — 16 days ago
