South Australia Shiraz

Jip Jip Rocks

Limestone Coast Shiraz 2016

Color of vivid bloody red. Nose is nice with plenty of fruit notes like ripe cherry, plum, berries, cocoa and leather, and minerals. Taste is dry and thick to begin with, good strawberries and plum notes come next with hint of sweetness. Peppery notes come on the 3rd wave. Very nice berries note follows. Also some savory spice like thyme. Good cherry jam in the aftertaste. She is a nice Shiraz. With interesting and real nice flavors. — 5 days ago

Keyneton Mount Edelstone Vineyard Shiraz 2006

Aromas of raspberry and hints of Thyme and Mint. Oak has fully blended into the fruit at 12 years and is totally balanced. The hallmark of this wine has always been its soft silky tannins; like its more famous elder sibling Hill of Grace for many more $. Medium bodied and in a great place right now in its development. Superb wine in a good vintage from a Vineyard planted in 1912 - dry grown ungrafted vines. Winery says can cellar to 2025. — 10 days ago

Nice juice.

Paringa Estate

Sparkling Shiraz 2016

This dark wine has a big, grapey nose with a blast of leather and meat coming right behind. It's an interesting combo, such a simple beginning that turns complex on a dime. The palate is just as brash, with subdued bubbles, keen acidity and a dark, fruity taste. Think Lambrusco, but bigger. The earth profile hits late and stays on the finish. Fun. — 22 days ago

Greenock Shiraz 2003

The youth on this wine was incredible. I simply cannot imagine drinking this one too much earlier than what we did. The nose was so complex....floral, ripe black fruit, hint of nitrogen. Entry was dark, full bodied ripe black fruit and fig. The middle turned darker. Finished with dominance. Lots of black pepper. Tannins were soft and had resolved for the most part. This one was ready to kick ass and take names. — 2 days ago

Yangarra Estate

PF Preservative Free McLaren Vale Shiraz 2016

And onwards with wines I don’t try enough. Ugh studying. I’ve decided blueberries are my “tell” for Syrah/Shiraz is and ripeness/caramel tells me it’s Australia. Plus tannins no matter where made. I remain a Francophile though Eight Arms Cellars makes some cool Syrah blends (the Tentacle not the octopod) but I can’t say I dig Shiraz. Tho I respect this. Could be good with chocolate covered caramel bites. But I have no werthers alas. — 12 days ago

This is Eldertons Flagship. Rich and ripe with oak dominating at this early stage in its life. Earthy with coffee grinds and spice. Full bodied and built for the long haul. Put in the cellar for at least 10 years before trying the next bottle. — 13 days ago

RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015

This 2015 Aussie Shiraz, RWT from Penfolds is dark, broody and voluptuous. The vast majority of my Australian wine experiences are of lower end, mass produced juice bombs. This is a cut above and some. — 13 days ago

Greenock Creek

Apricot Block Shiraz 1998

Once highly extracted... now, at last, showing a more open knit and relaxed feel.
Sweet and creamy cedar and sandalwood, blueberrycompote and a dark brambly coulis, peppery spicy and gamey. Great acidic vein, tannines resolved, wonderful hint of juniper in the long and balanced finish.
Very very nice..!
