Good colour; an immaculately balanced and elegant medium-bodied shiraz, benefiting from the cool vintage that has blown freshness into so many wines. Blackberry and red cherry both in the ring. Drink to: 2032; Price: $28.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
Gorgeously fruited and fragrant, the bouquet shows dark fruit richness with seductive notes of vanilla, game, spice and cedar, which lead to a succulent palate that is plush and silky. It is gorgeously flavoursome with loads of tasty flavours, wonderfully supported by velvety texture and supple tannins. At its best: now to 2027. Price: $28.00; Rating: 94 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
The fruit is rich, sweet and mouthfilling and underlined by fine-grained tannin extraction and grip lending structure and mouthfeel, with fresh acidity enhancing the vitality. The flavours show aromatic lift as they carry to a lingering finish. This is a rich and sweetly ripe Shiraz with vibrant blackberry and plum fruit along with raspberries, spices and liquorice on a finely extracted palate. Rating: 18.5/20 Points; Raymond Chan
Ever-reliable shiraz out of the Barossa. It’s as much red-berried as black and that’s not a bad thing. It feels well-settled and sure-footed, its creamy texture helping the flavours swing impressively through the palate. Coffee-cream, a trace of fragrant dry herbs, and just enough firm/chocolatey tannin to keep it all neat. But with confidence. Tasted: May 19; Alcohol: 14.5%; Price: $28; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2019-2029; Rated: 93 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
Ripe, dark-fruited and sexy, the 2017 Shotfire Shiraz spent 14 months in American oak (40% new). Blackberries, cola and baking spices pick up hints of vanilla, while the full-bodied palate offers soft supple tannins and a long finish. Rating: 91 Points; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
