- Wits End Luna Shiraz 2013 Product #30604 (In Stock)
The winery is called Chalk Hill at home, but has to go by Wits End here. Nothing confusing about this rich but nicely balanced Shiraz, though! Dark plum and blackberry fruit gets complexity from accents of leather, smoke, roasted meat and soy notes. Full-bodied and fleshy, this has the intensity and gamey/meaty character to shine with lamb but it's soft and supple enough to just sip.
- Fox Creek Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2012 Product #29509 (In Stock)
Nice juicy character the the ripe fruit with smoky accents. Very good value here.
"Exotic, expansive aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, vanilla and cola, along with a peppery overtone and a hint of violet pastille. Broad, fleshy, appealingly sweet boysenberry and cherry liqueur flavors show excellent depth and a seamless texture. Finishes juicy and long, with building spiciness, an echo of blue fruit and round tannins." Vinous (Josh Reynolds) 91 points
"Fine tannins swarm around a lithe core of blueberry, dark plum and savory flavors. Earthy nuances linger on the finish. This has intensity and grace. Drink now through 2017. 500 cases made."Wine Spectator 89 points
