2012 Jim Barry - Shiraz The Lodge Hill
Vivid purple-crimson; a totally delicious wine with a spring in its step more frequently encountered in cool climate shiraz; its fruit flavours span blood plum, red cherry and mulberry, these complexed by spice and garden herbs, the tannins fine and supple. Great value. Drink [until] 2027. Score - 95. (James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, July 26, 2014)

2011 Fattori - Soave Motto Piane
The 2011 Soave Motto Piane takes Garganega, this work horse white grape at the base of all Soave wines, to new heights. Clusters were harvested the second week of September and subsequently laid to dry on straw mats for approximately 30 days. Winemaking sees a variety of vessels including stainless steel, tonneaux and botte. The bouquet is expressive and elegant with enduring tones of candied peach, lemon custard, stone fruit and yellow flower. Its elegance is capped by perfectly chiseled mineral notes that frame and contain the wine's terrific expressiveness. Soave is an age-worthy white and this wine will continue to evolve in the upcoming years. Drink 2014-2019. Score - 93. (Monica Larner, erobertparker.com, Oct. 2013)

2012 Chalk Hill Wines PTY Wits End Luna
Dense, deep purple-crimson; an extraordinary wine, with more blackberry fruit per dollar than any other shiraz I can recollect ever tasting; durif would be the only competitor. It is a velvety, luscious mouthful of fruit, dark chocolate and soft tannins, whatever oak used no longer visible - and not needed. Exceptional value. Drink until 2025. Score - 93. (James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, Nov. 1, 2013)
