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       Seppelt St Peters Shiraz 2018
3 bottles       Hemera Home Block Shiraz 2017
3 bottles       Curtis Martins Vineyard Limited McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018
3 bottles       Tyrrells Stevens Single Vineyard Shiraz 2018

 

Seppelt St Peters Shiraz 2018
It's not its commanding, black power that sets this apart as a grand expression of St Peters, nor its seductive, fragrant, five spice and pepper-laden personality, nor even the effortless, supple, silky tannins of these fabled old vines, but rather the consummate and seamless manner in which it effortlessly unites these three universes to monumental effect. World class. Rating: 97 Points; Tyson Stelzer

Hemera Home Block Shiraz 2017
Exclusively sourced from the estate Block 3A, vinification identical to its siblings with one exception: it is matured in predominantly new French oak, and I find the result perfect. Glossy black cherry and blackberry fruit take centre stage, oak left to the sides in a very good support role. Drink to: 2037; Price: $60.00; Date: August 2020; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; Wine Companion

Curtis Martins Vineyard Limited McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018
Offering lavish opulence with seductive sophistication, the wine shows black/blueberry, perfumed dark spice, cedar and game characters on the nose. It's immensely powerful and concentrated, displaying outstanding depth and multi-layered mouthfeel, wonderfully enhanced by plush texture and perfectly pitched polished tannins. Tasted: September 2021; Now to 2038; Price: $150.00; Rating: 97 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

Tyrrells Stevens Single Vineyard Shiraz 2018
Matured for 15 months in used 2500l French casks. The regional magic allows the power of this great shiraz to come from 13.5% alc and neutral oak. It's Hunter Valley to its bootlaces, with decades to come, a steal in these days of $300 plus wines coming from everywhere. Drink to: 2058; Price: $50.00; Date Tasted: Aug 2021; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 97 Points, Special Value Star & Top 100 Wines for 2021; James Halliday Wine Companion
