    Classic Barossa aromas of dark plum, blackberry and macerated summer berry fruits literally spill out of the glass here. Hints of Asian spice, licorice, earth, roasting meats, purple flowers, berry flan and gently spiced oak add to the wines aromatic complexity.Plenty of texture and attitude on the palate with a solid wall of ripe, concentrated black fruits. Flavours of satsuma plum, blackberry and blueberry all coming into play. There is a lovely flow to the fruit over the mid-palate with the rich frui Learn More

    95 points Halliday Wine Companion: 'From bush vines planted in ‘46, 50% whole-berries, wild yeast and kept on lees in used French oak for 10 months. So fragrant it's breathtaking. To start, a whirl of perfectly ripe raspberries and red currants, patchouli and subtle Middle Eastern spices. The palate is tightly wound, with raspberry-like acidity, more pronounced tannins in the background. They'll meet up in time.

Ripe tannins and sprightly acidity are in sync, with the latter in the driver's seat. Come along for the ride.

    The Yangarra GSM is a careful blending of grenache, shiraz and mourvèdre. Bright and perfumed with chewy earth and spice characters, this is a fine example of what an evenly spread palate tastes like. A wine with a backbone of old bush vine Grenache planted in the 1940’s. This wine will continue to evolve with cellaring, but can also be enjoyed in its youth alongside barbequed meats. Learn More

    Wirra Wirra Original Blend Grenache Shiraz 2014
    Grenache is such a good grape for McLaren Vale, and in this blend it makes up 70%. OB, the Original Gangster. Or Burgundy, if you prefer. Good wine here offering immediate attraction, assuming you love the smell of fresh raspberry, poached strawberries, spice, roses and coal. Medium bodied, fresh and succulent, with a smattering of grainy tannin shaping up all that juicy fruit, and a dry almost leathery finish to bind the story. Not so deep, but great to drink.

    Bright and vibrant on the palate with notes of jellied fruits, cherry drops and strawberries and cream, with subtle hints of rose water. Sappy through the mid-palate with a lovely interplay of creamy/ leesy texture. The gentle, chalky sappy texture runs the length of the palate finishing with hints of white pepper, aromatic wood and a hint of deli meat.   Learn More

    James Halliday on the 2016 Butchers Block Red "A shiraz/grenache/mourvedre blend, part sourced from some of the oldest (1865) vines on the Turkey Flat vineyard. Excellent colour; a warm and spicy bouquet introduces a medium-bodied palate with red and black berries, plus good mouthfeel and length. Oak plays little or no part in framing the palate, fine tannins doing the trick. 94 points" Learn More

    The great undervalued variety of Mataro, a Spanish synonym widely used in the Barossa for the French variety Mourvedre, has long held a fascination for Tim Smith. In the great years, viz 2009/2010, TSW Mataro has the classic varietal aromas of Chinese-5-spice, liquorice and dark berry fruits. The palate is at once spicy, with lively defining tannins due to being picked at exactly the right time and being under the deft hand of Tim Smith once in the winery…vineyard age is typically 50+ years and usually up to four vineyard selections make the final blend.   Learn More

    Toni Paterson MW 94 Points There is something very satisfying about Barossa red, with all its generosity and lusciousness, and Tim Smith makes an excellent modern example. It is soft and opulent, chocolatey and plummy, but there’s also great lift and vibrancy, with hints of rose, redcurrants and spice. The tannins are plentiful, yet ripe and integrated, and there is excellent flavour progression through the length of the palate. Very well-made and delicious. The Real Review, 05 April 2017 Learn More

    Deep red. Heady aromas of strawberry and kirsch. The strawberry component is a result of whole bunch fermentation with the Grenache component. Spicy and layered, the medium bodied palate has earthy Mataro richness and length. Fruit flavours are in the dried fig spectrum. Soft, mature and savoury skin tannins define the finish.   Learn More

Medium bodied, juicy but with some earth and dried herb, lovely fine emery board tannin, balanced acidity, and that fine brush of tannin cleaning up the finish. This is very good Grenache, and beautifully made too.Rated : 93 Points Winefront Learn More

    I can’t recall where the old vine single vineyard is, but let’s just assume it’s somewhere nice. Spice with a distinct top note of shrubbery and stalk, some floral notes, juicy cherry and raspberry flavour. Medium bodied, attractive grainy tannin and balanced acidity keeps it all trim, and the finish is firm, long and punctuated with a pleasant twist of stalkiness. Certainly has some of that Pinot Noir of the Barossa about it, which is nice. Winefront.com.au Rated : 93 Points Learn More

    100% Cabernet Franc, hand harvested from organically tended vines planted on the gravelly shale soil of western Anjou-just across the river from Savennières. The idea here is for a fun, lively, no-nonsense 'vin de soif', made to be enjoyed young while vibrant and fresh. To this end the fruit is fully destemmed and then simply fermented/raised in stainless steel for just six months. This leaps out the glass with freshly picked berries, dried herbs and smoky graphite notes. The palate is crunchy- Learn More

    "Some wines just hit the nail square on. This is one such wine. It’s both fresh and textural, lively and substantial enough. You taste it and think: yes. It flows where it needs to, gathers where it must, persists when it’s all on the line. There’s quite a deal of fine-grained tannin and yet its dryness never interrupts the argument in favour of the wine’s quality, or its drinkability. It gives light- to medium-bodied red wine a good name." Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Effortless drinking and effortless complexity. It’s something of a holy grail. It’s reductive, smoky, spicy, a bit meaty, earthen, and generally savoury to its neck. It’s also though ripped with anise and raspberry and assorted berries and florals, all which keeps the juices well and truly flowing. Delicious. Totally."

    Now this is a fascinating wine, from the clear red colour, through to the intriguing nose,... this GSM blend is going from strength to strength with each successive vintage ... The palate is chock full of dark cherry and raspberry fruit, spicy blackberries, earth and licorice, showing great length, and finishing quite savoury. This is a very complex sophisticated wine that makes great current drinking, but which could be cellared for the medium term. Well done. Learn More

    Wine worth crowing about. Mountain herbs, graphite, peppercorn and spice notes come at least in lock-step, if not ahead of, blackberry and plum, leather and earth flavours. It’s different, in a good way. It’s fresh and complex, more-ish and highly engaging. Weight doesn’t really come into it but there’s more than enough here. Refreshing feel to it just puts another tick on the positive side of the ledger." Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Ultimately this a triumph of a wine. Exactly what you’d want for young Grenache, with this impossible red fruit plumpness, the alcohol not excessive, the tannins welcome. It’s not meant to be a wine for the long term, but it’s got the guts to be convincing. Win. Best drinking: Now to ten years. 18/20, 93/100. 13.8%, $35. Would I buy it?

    "Barossa blend of mataro (52%), grenache (26%) and shiraz. The 2015 saw older French oak only and I assume this has been handled similarly. The texture is creamy and soft and the flavours are juicy and inviting. That’s pretty much all you need to know because it drinks like a charm as a result. It tastes of redcurrant and raspberry with earth, clove and smoky oak inputs. There’s a touch more tannin than you might expect, Learn More

    The wines seem a little more cloudy, but fine, as an observation. Raspberry rope, rhubarb and ginger and assorted exotic spices, new leather and floral perfume. Medium to full bodied, lovely fleshy chalky tannin and even acidity – mouthfeel is really enjoyable in its rustic unpolished style.

The palate is not a let down it's absolutely delicious, that plummy blackberry fruit, mingled with dark raspberries, pure fruited, long and lively. It has a real creaminess to the palate, great length, and really really fine tannins on the finish. The oak is well in the background, leaving all that wonderful organic fruit to do the work.  Learn More
