Ordinarily, we would be fortunate enough to feature one or two 97 Point rated Shiraz's each year, especially given that on almost all occasions, said wines are made in miniscule amounts, almost always a few hundred cases at best and almost always they aren't cheap. What we have here is the StarDozen: 97 Point Shiraz Collection, featuring 3 bottles each from 4 renowned producers. All wines rating 97 Points from Australia's leading wine critics and all significantly below their retail price. This is a rare and extremely limited opportunity.

The StarDozen consists of the following:

3 bottles       Spinifex Barossa Valley Syrah 2019
3 bottles       Dukes Magpie Hill Reserve Shiraz 2018
3 bottles       Shaw & Smith Shiraz 2017
3 bottles       Heathcote Estate Shiraz 2017

 

Spinifex Barossa Valley Syrah 2019
The compelling complexity of the wine starts in the old vines, magnified by the whole bunch (40%) and whole berry (60%) fermentation: layer upon layer of blackberry essence accompanied by licorice, spices of all kinds and velvety tannins. Exceptional value. Drink to: 2044; Date Tasted: Oct 2020; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; The Weekend Australian

Dukes Magpie Hill Reserve Shiraz 2018
Estate-grown, small parcels. The colour is deep, the palate exceptionally focused and full-bodied, yet it has the Duke's lightness of touch courtesy of contract winemaking by Rob Diletti of Castle Rock. This is a great wine with a very long future. Drink to: 2048; Price: $35.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2019; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Shaw & Smith Shiraz 2017
Time for a standing ovation. This is superb in its complexity, fruit power and persistence. It's a meaty, clovey, spice-ridden shiraz, but the core is spread with dense plum, redcurrant, anise and violets. That meatiness though: it's gorgeous. And when combined with wood smoke and peppercorns, it puts the stars within reach. It is simply gorgeous. Drink to: 2036; Price: $47.00; Alcohol: 13.8%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; Campbell Mattinson; James Halliday Wine Companion
