Jim Barry Lodge Hill Shiraz 2014
When one thinks of Clare Valley's Jim Barry and in particular the Lodge Hill label, the immediate thought is for outstanding Riesling produced from the property. Purchased in 1977, Barry's intention was to devote the entire area to Riesling. However, there was a small area which had a gentle slope facing north on which he grew premium Shiraz. It is this fruit that has produced the Jim Barry Lodge Hill Shiraz 2014. At WineStar we have really got behind this label in the past couple of vintages (2012 and 2013) but the 2014 really is one out of the box. 97 Points - Royal Melbourne Wine Show 2016
Teusner The Bilmore Barossa Shiraz 2014
Good colour; a rich, fruit-slapping mouthful that draws you swiftly back for a second mouthful, and in no time the bottle is empty, especially if you have shared it with another. The finish is remarkable, light and almost airy, yet with a savoury note that serves to highlight the fruit.

Kalleske Pirathon Shiraz 2014
Pirathon Shiraz 2014 is dark purple-black in colour. The perfumed boquet is uplifting and indicative of a complex wine with aromas of blackberry, plum, blueberry, rose perfume, chocolate, subtle oak and a hint of spice. The full-bodied palate is rich and mouthfilling with plenty of ripe dark fruits. Background oak barrel characters compliment the bright fruit flavours. There are fine integrated tannins giving the wine a solid structure. This is an extremely balanced Shiraz with fruit, oak and tannin working together to provide harmony. A very lengthy finish completes a powerful but opulent wine. Pirathon is a paramount expression of north-western Barossa Shiraz that will reward time in the cellar for 5-10 years.
Woods Crampton Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015
Includes 5% Mataro in the blend, I did not know that, but it’s a smart move. It’s as tasty and accessible as ever, and also carries its trademark drinkabilty and understated style. Plum and blue fruits, peanuts in dark chocolate, plenty of spice, touch of stalk and meaty funk, with a subtle floral perfume. Medium bodied, silky and well knit, with fine grained graphite tannin, balanced acidity, and an even finish of good length. Feels glossy and ready to go, though a couple of years in the cellar will likely show further improvement.
