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 Indigene Shiraz Mataro 2016
3 bottles       Curtis Martins Vineyard Limited McLaren Vale Shiraz 2016
3 bottles       Seppelt St Peters Shiraz 2017
3 bottles       Heathcote Estate Shiraz 2017

 

Spinifex Indigene Shiraz Mataro 2016
Deep crimson-purple. Clearly the best of the three very good '16 Spinifex Shirazs, all making light of a vintage that had a few challenges, and also reflecting the old vines. It effortlessly moves along a bouquet and palate that are supremely elegant, complexity so deeply seated and balanced you barely notice it until the time comes to spit it out. Purple and black fruits sit within a web of tannins and a whisper of oak.  Drink to: 2036; Price: $60.00; Date Tasted: Jul 2018; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Curtis Martins Vineyard Limited McLaren Vale Shiraz 2016
This striking shiraz exhibits stunning fruit richness and intensity, showing lifted aromas of blackberry, vanilla, chocolate tart, cedar and smoked game on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that displays outstanding depth and opulence. It is compelling and symphonic with layers of silky texture and delicious flavours. At its best: now to 2032. Price: $150.00; Rating: 97 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

Seppelt St Peters Shiraz 2017
Deep, dark red with good purple tints, the bouquet rich in ironstone, smoky graphite and spicy/peppery shiraz nuances. The palate is soft and rich and fleshy, very much a savoury wine which is driven by pepper spice and earthy, ironstone nuances. Full-bodied but also supple and finely-textured. Serious shiraz. Drink: 2021 to 2037; Price: $80.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 97 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
