Beyond the River Shiraz

Lovely thick aroma, and tasting almost like a Bordeaux. Better a little warmer than room temperature in our opinion. Purchased via Naked Wines. — 8 days ago

Penfolds

Grange Bin 95 Shiraz 1991

Boys penfolds taste off. First impression nose was distinctive with eculptus. Over the course of about 7 houra of decanter, this wine improves significantly especially on the nose. The final glass reflect the true top class wine of australia. Balance, abit of blue fruit and overally the crowd went from saying being dissapointed to saying it is world class standard. Think it can be kept for longer time, maybe another 5 to 10 yrs — 13 days ago

Syrah 2019

Wow.....I was nervous to taste this wine literally just off the truck... was nervous about the wine being delivered to Florida in record 90 degree plus temperatures... my worst fears seemed realized as the first delivery attempt on Thursday was aborted because the bar code scanner couldn’t be read... stayed over the weekend at the non refrigerated FedEx hub and finally delivered on Monday. Upon opening the wine tonight my worst fears were unrealized... the wine has the typical massive nose and scintillating flavor waves that seem to just roll over the palate.... in sum a great bottle despite Fed Ex’s best attempt to cook it! — 8 hours ago

Penfolds

Bin 389 South Australia Cabernet Shiraz 2018

Dusty minerals, some purple fruit, a little va and a minty, slightly soapy aroma. The palate more than compensates. It is lively, bombastic, clean fruited and fun. Musty herbal black currant flavors, plus some ripe red fruit and a clever balance of structural tannins & acids with a juicy sweetness, though this is definitely dry. Think I’ll put a few bottles away for extended aging. Good wine.. root day? — a day ago

Henschke

Hill of Grace Vineyard Shiraz 1998

A Mother’s Day treat last Sunday with Roast Lamb. An initial aroma of H2S which I sometimes get with Henschke reds. Took a while to blow off. Some Animale and vegetal notes amongst the raspberry, earth and spice. After a few hours aromas of ground coffee. However the wonderful supple palate overwhelmed any negativity from the nose. Sweet and earthy with those liquid velvet tannins - a product of ancient vines, the oldest of which are 160 years old. An inner core which will carry this through to the 2030s. I decided to open this as the exceptional 2016 has just been released for sale at the princely sum of $890AUD. I won’t be buying at that price but I’m sure they will sell the lot with or without the Chinese market. — 2 days ago
