About The Wine

This is a museum release of the iconic S+S Shiraz from the very fine 2009 vintage.

It received  some great write-ups at the time of release with 97 points from Halliday and 93+-95 points from Gary Walsh who commented that, "Seems a little more exciting and edgy than previous releases, which is great to see."

The wine is just coming into its own and is quite limited, as is often the case with premium museum release wines, but definitely worth a look if you have a limited amount of aged wines at your disposal.

They don’t come up often so get in quick.

Critic Reviews

97Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Deep colour, vibrant hue; deep and compelling levels of ripe black fruits, savoury spices and well handled toasty oak; the palate is unctuous and silky, with black and red fruits combining with silky fine-grained tannins expanding across the palate with true grace and harmony; long and luscious." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

95Points
The Wine Front

"Smooth vanilla and chocolate, pepper steak, blackberry – all spicy and saucy with balanced acidity – lovely slick of grainy controlling tannins and good length of flavour. Medium weight and a little tense as a young wine, with a minor level of herbal and dark chocolate bitterness adding interest. Latent potential here?  Seems a little more exciting and edgy than previous releases, which is great to see." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
