2020 Vinden Headcase Shiraz Nouveau
Young winemaker Angus Vinden with a fresh take on a classic wine style here.
This is not your average Hunter Valley Shiraz. Angus describes this as a 'nouveau' style of red. It's a light, frisky Shiraz grown on his family estate.
A world away from the leathery, savoury traditional Shiraz the region is famous for, this is a young jovial red perfect for drinking right now, even with a slight chill! Think Hunter Shiraz meets Beaujolais and you're heading in the right direction.
Looking for interesting new things from the Hunter Valley? This fresh look at Shiraz should be right up your alley.Read more about 2020 Vinden Headcase Shiraz Nouveau
2019 Mada Shiraz
Hamish Young's Mada Shiraz is a very seductive wine.
The fruit comes from three vineyards in the Murrumbateman area, one providing incredible perfume, the other two contributing underlying power.
A around half of the fruit was fermented as whole bunches, and only around 25% new oak used in the maturation of the wine.
This is the essence of silky, slippery Canberra Shiraz. A wine that oozes sex appeal.
Hamish has not put a foot wrong since starting his own label in 2016, and this gorgeous Shiraz is yet another notch in his belt.Read more about 2019 Mada Shiraz
2017 Luke Lambert Crudo Shiraz
Luke Lambert's 'entry level' Crudo Shiraz is terrific value for money.
Luke is one of the modern superstars of the Yarra Valley. If you want to get to know his wine, this is the perfect place to start.
Luke makes this in a style which is more approachable in its youth than the exceptional, collectable Luke Lambert Syrah. A Yarra Valley Shiraz with drinkability as the focal point, it shows all the perfume, freshness and spice that makes Luke's Shiraz/Syrah so unique. The Crudo is ready to go now. It's delicious.
Lovers of Luke's wines and/or cool climate Shiraz, back up the truck.Read more about 2017 Luke Lambert Crudo Shiraz
2018 Charlotte Dalton Love Me Love You Shiraz
Winemaker Charlotte Hardy has found a happy home in the Adelaide Hills. Her blossoming Charlotte Dalton wine label is producing hit after hit. One for the 'must-watch' list if you're into the avant-garde of SA wine.
Here, Charlotte tackles Adelaide Hills Shiraz with a gentle touch. This was grown on the Murdoch Hill vineyard in Oakbank and the Deanery Vineyard in Balhannah. It's a Shiraz set to make you blush.
Charlotte's hands-off approach yielding maximum deliciousness in the 2018 release. Dizzyingly perfumed, swift and fleet-of-foot through the mouth, this is what cooler-climate Shiraz is all about.Read more about 2018 Charlotte Dalton Love Me Love You Shiraz
2018 Spinifex Bete Noir
Husband and wife team of Peter Schell and Magali Gely have extensive winemaking experience in the south of France, which proves the inspiration for their unique wines made from predominantly Rhone varietals.
Unlike most of Spinifex's wines, 'Bete Noir' is 100% varietal, in this case, Shiraz.
But unlike many big and bold Barossa Shiraz, with 30% of the fruit coming from the Barossa's cooler neighbour Eden Valley this wine has remarkable perfume, elegance and balance.
This has a distinctive 'old world' feel with the vibrancy of South Australian fruit. A wine with an impeccable track record for a true Shiraz connoisseur.Read more about 2018 Spinifex Bete Noir
2018 Swinney Frankland River Syrah
A fantastic example of Syrah here from the Swinney family and the crack team of Rob Mann and Lee Haselgrove.
While Western Australian Cabernet Sauvignon gets the lion's share of attention, Shiraz when grown in the right spot can excel, particularly when grown and tended by someone as knowledgeable as Lee Haselgrove.
This is a brilliant Syrah. It's spicy, intense and powerful, ready to drink now or in a decade's time. Rob Mann has brought a wealth of experience to the Swinney operation since coming on as winemaker in 2018 and every ounce of his skill is on show here.
As Campbell Mattinson said in his 95 point review, it's quite simply "Gorgeous."Read more about 2018 Swinney Frankland River Syrah
