2020 By Farr Shiraz
The Shiraz By Farr is a Shiraz made like a Pinot Noir.
This is from vines planted in 1994 as part of Gary Farr's original plantings. In most vintages, a small amount of Viognier is either co-fermented or back blended to enhance fragrance and texture. It's a soft, seductive wine that really turns it on.
Silky, slippery and spicy, this is a wonderful expression of Shiraz from a great Australian vineyard.Read more about 2020 By Farr Shiraz
2021 Agricola Flaxman Valley Shiraz
The home wine of sorts for Callum, the Flaxman Shiraz is sourced from two vineyards: his family's old-vine home block which is over 100 years-old, and their neighbours stunning steep hillside vineyard next door.
Having an intimate, lifetime of knowledge of these two vineyards is clearly evident in the deftness of this wine. So light on its feet, and a truly unique expression of Eden Valley Shiraz. Really though, this is more Syrah than Shiraz, in the Australian understanding of the stylistic differences. Black pepper, olive tapenade, with a salinity, all dancing on top of cool black fruits.
Far out, this wine is just so damn sexy, everything about it screams drink me, drink me now. So sexy it hurts.Read more about 2021 Agricola Flaxman Valley Shiraz
2019 Yangarra Ironheart Shiraz
The Ironheart Shiraz is a blend of the best barrels from the most profound block of Shiraz on the biodynamically farmed Yangarra Estate in McLaren Vale.
Block 15, the most distinctive of the twelve blocks of Shiraz on the Yangarra vineyard, yields Shiraz fruit of immense concentration and complexity. The wine has an easy power and authority, a commanding presence and a wine built for great things in coming decades.
The fruit is rich yet balanced, the viticultural team at Yangarra mustering the regional concentration and stature of their hero variety whilst maintaining freshness and purity at the same time.
Big but beautiful is the message. A benchmark example of Shiraz from this region and now one of the most collectable in all of South Australia.Read more about 2019 Yangarra Ironheart Shiraz
2020 Standish Wine Co The Standish Shiraz
Each and every wine from the talented hands of Dan Standish are benchmark wines, for sure. He is crafting some of the region's most compelling examples of Shiraz at the moment.
The 'The Standish' Shiraz is made from fruit farmed by the Laycock family in the Greenock sub-region of the Barossa Valley. Dan has worked closely with this great vineyard since 2005, with previous releases of Standish 'Andelmonde’ and ‘Borne Bollene’ coming from this site.
He brings the wine to fruition in impeccable fashion. The sheer quality and depth of this Shiraz is nothing short of remarkable. Limited allocations available. Barossa fans, this is a cellar essential.Read more about 2020 Standish Wine Co The Standish Shiraz
2019 Yarra Yering Underhill Shiraz
The Underhill Shiraz comes from 8 acres of vines on the far Western side of the famous Yarra Yering vineyard in Gruyere.
Planted by Dr. Carrodus in 1973, the wines from this site tend to show better in their youth than the brooding powerhouse that is the Dry Red No. 2.
Underhill is approachable from day one, however, a few years in the cellar wouldn't hurt it either. This is yet another fantastic release from Sarah Crowe, bold and full-flavoured.
If you love Shiraz/Syrah from the Yarra Valley, this wine would make an excellent addition to your cellar.Read more about 2019 Yarra Yering Underhill Shiraz
2016 Mount Pleasant Mountain B Medium Bodied Dry Red
Mountain B may sound more like a boringly-named Himalayan peak but it is part of the new approach to marking out unique blocks in the Mount Pleasant vineyards, and blending them into light, medium and full-bodied releases.
The Mountain B Shiraz is no B side but a simply delicious, velvety mid-weight red with both sweet and savoury characteristics.
There's a bit of everything here with nothing overblown; some aromatic red fruits, touch of herbalness and earth, gentle tannins, balanced acidity. The sum of many parts, a fitting tribute to the skills of Maurice O'Shea.Read more about 2016 Mount Pleasant Mountain B Medium Bodied Dry Red
