Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz

2012 Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz

Winemaker says: This limited-release shiraz has a deep, black centre, with a touch of chocolate and aniseed on the nose, dark, plummy fruit on the palate, and a richly structured finish.

Hutton Vale Farm Shiraz

2013 Hutton Vale Farm Shiraz

Winemaker says: Aromas of red and black fruits, black pepper, herbs and spices give way to a palate that’s brimming with brooding red fruits and the salty-savoury liquorice notes that characterise shiraz from this area. 

RRP $75 | 2043 | Hutton Vale Farm

Chateau Yaldara Reserve Shiraz

2015 Chateau Yaldara Reserve Shiraz

Winemaker says: The nose has abundant plum, blueberry and sweet star anise. Silky tannins enhance the dark cherry and mulberry characters on the palate. 20 months of maturation in French and American oak has added notes of toast and dark chocolate to this age-worthy wine.

RRP $40 | 2032 | Chateau Yaldara

Jacob's Creek Double Barrel Shiraz

2015 Jacob's Creek Double Barrel Shiraz

Winemaker says: The generous palate displays a beguiling mix of sweet red fruit and dark chocolate that speaks to its Barossa origins. Ageing in French and American oak wine barrels adds a subtle toasty vanillin character.

St Hugo Private Collection Shiraz

2013 St Hugo Private Collection Maranaga Shiraz

Winemaker says: Melding expressive Barossa shiraz form the Maranaga sub-region with traditional winemaking techniques. Complex, rich and spiced, this wine has many layers that draw you in.
