As you may imagine, of all the varieties, Shiraz scoring 97 Points with James Halliday are the most sought after. Despite over 6000 wines making the cut for his annual Wine Companion, there are still relatively few that climb the mountain that is 97 Points. What we have here is the StarDozen: James Halliday 97 Point Shiraz featuring 3 bottles each from 4 renowned producers. This is a rare and extremely limited opportunity.

The StarDozen consists of the following:

3 bottles        Peter Lehmann VSV Hongell Shiraz 2012
3 bottles        Clonakilla O’Riada Shiraz 2015
3 bottles        Seppelt St Peters Shiraz 2014
3 bottles        Turkey Flat Barossa Shiraz 2014

Peter Lehmann VSV Hongell Shiraz 2012
From a small block on the western ridge of the Barossa Valley sustainably farmed by Ian and Daniela Hongell. Deeply coloured, it spent 10 days on skins before 12 months in French hogsheads; it is a black-fruited powerhouse that defies logic with its calm elegance derived from skilled handling of its ripe tannins and subtle, cedary French oak. 750 dozen made. Drink by: 2042; Price: $60.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2014; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Clonakilla O’Riada Shiraz 2015
A strikingly fragrant and perfumed effort from Clonakilla, this wine captures you instantaneously. It is superbly constructed, aromatically fragrant, perfumed and darkly fruited; on the palate spice, superfine tannins and then the finish that just lingers and expands. Drink to: 2040; Price: $45.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday, Wine Companion

Seppelt St Peters Shiraz 2014
The run of scintillating form continues. This builds complexity in lockstep with depth, its black pepper, clove and gun smoke notes sunk deep into the perfectly ripened, smooth-skinned, cherry-plum fruit. Tannin, firm but exquisitely fine, is but one of its many exemplary qualities. A sensational wine. Drink by: 2040; Price: $80.00; Date Tasted: March 2016; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Turkey Flat Barossa Shiraz 2014
All of the mainstream red winemaking options are used, demanding (and receiving) unrelenting attention to detail. This is a hero Barossa Valley shiraz, with great colour, profound complexity, yet retaining a calm personality within its array of primary, fresh flavours. Drink by: 2044; Price: $47.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2016; Alcohol: 14.1%; Rating: 97 Points; Special Value Star; Top 100 Wines of 2016; James Halliday Wine Companion
