The 2004 Shiraz R Reserve comes from the Greenock’s Crowhurst Vineyard as well as a small parcel in Vinevale. Aged 27 months in 100% new French 300 liter hogsheads, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it is an opaque purple-hued, backward, but super-concentrated, full-bodied effort with enormous potential. I would not be surprised to see it age like a Hermitage from France’s Rhone Valley. (RP)
A terrific effort from two Barossa vineyards, one in Greenock and the other in Vinevale, this is wonderfully perfumed and floral on the nose, yet also peppery and fruity--in a word, complex. Ditto the flavors, which range from coffee to olive, chocolate to vanilla and berries to spice. All of these elements are tied together by a creamy, lush texture and a long, elegant and refined finish. *Editors' Choice* (JC)
Polished and generous, this is beautifully focused, plush and layered with cream, nutmeg and bittersweet chocolate-tinged blueberry, plum and currant flavors, which are wrapped neatly in refined tannins that let the finish roll on. (HS)
