- Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart Barossa Shiraz 2010 Product #26630 (In Stock)
There's good lift and brightness to the powerfully ripe fruit here from an old-vine (many 100+ year-old vines) in the heart of Barossa.
"Glass-staining purple. Aromas and flavors of candied dark fruits and violet, with subtle smokiness and a touch of black pepper. Smooth and seamless in texture, with very good finishing power and persistent florality."Wine Advocate 91 points
"Focused, juicy and broad, but refreshingly balanced, lifting the dark, ripe blackberry, cherry and spice flavors with lively acidity. Finishes with snap. Drink now through 2017."Wine Spectator 90 points
- Torbreck Woodcutter's Shiraz Barossa Valley 2011 Product #27246 (In Stock)
Another fine release of this all-time Austrailan Shiraz value classic.
"The 2011 Woodcutters Shiraz doesn’t miss a beat in this difficult vintage. Deep garnet-purple colored, it is scented of cassis, black plums and macerated blackberries over nuances of charcoal, black pepper, smoked duck breast and violets. Full-bodied and packed with black berry and savory meat and mineral flavors, it is nicely poised in the mouth with a taut backbone of medium level rounded tannins and just enough acid, finishing with a good persistence of pepper and spice notes. Drink this one now to 2018+."Wine Advocate 91 points
