Mountadam Barossa Five-Fifty Shiraz 2017
A grapey, highly aromatic shiraz, playing the reductive card with a deft hand. Lilac lift caresses blue fruits aromas all, a whiff of salty iodine and terrine, pushed to a svelte finish by an effortless flow of peppery acidity. This is the sort of shiraz I enjoy drinking: mid-weight, savoury, fresh and reminiscent of the every day expressions from the northern Rhone, embellished with Aussie fruit. Drink by: 2024; Price: $20.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2018; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Teusner The Wark Family Shiraz 2017
Stories, past and present, form the tapestry of the generations who have grown grapes and made wine in the Barossa. They are the core of the many others, artists, chefs and many more, and Kim Teusner pays homage to one such, the Wark family, with this lovely wine redolent of blackberries, blackcurrant, licorice and tar, yet retains elegance. Drink by: 2030; Price: $29.00; Tasted: Sep 2018; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Auld Strawbridge Barossa Shiraz 2017
This is magnificent; the gorgeous bouquet shows blackberry, blueberry compote, vanilla, cake spice and cedar characters, followed by a sumptuous palate that is wonderfully textured and expansive. The wine offers outstanding depth and richness, superbly structured by loads of polished tannins. Rating: 95 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

Woods Crampton White Label Shiraz 2017
The wine is superbly fruited and lifted on the nose showing blackberry, dark plum, vanilla, roasted beet and dark chocolate aromas, followed by a plush palate that is supple and velvety. It is sumptuous and generous with loads of gorgeous flavours, backed by fine tannins, leading to a persistent delicious finish. Rating: 95 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
