    McLaren Vale, SA
    95pts Kim Brebach, 95pts Decanter World Wine Awards
    Selected from Heirloom’s best McLaren Vale vineyard. We saw musk, plum skin, spice, cherries, earthiness, Earl Grey tea, blackberry and black pepper. A sense enveloping and incredibly beguiling wine finished with a dusting of fine powdery tannins. Magical.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    97pts Kim Brebach
    The 2015 edition was a stunner, earning the following praise from wine writer Kim Brebach … 96++points. Penfolds would charge $200 for a wine like this. The 2016 is even better, offering intense black and blue fruits, spice and perfectly integrated oak. Brilliant drinking now and over the next 10-15.

    The Lienert’s have been farming in the Barossa for 150 years and decided to add some vines to their property about 20 years ago. The first fruit from 2004 and 2005 vintages went straight to the pool room, aka into Penfold’s St Henri. Funnily enough they then planted a lot more vines and introduced many more clonal variations of Shiraz. When they decided to start making booze, we conspired with them to come up with a wine from the best parcels of their best seven clonal selections of Shiraz. The intention – to make a wine which is floral and beguiling on the nose, densely fruited on the palate, long, complex and bloody awesome. For this very special wine, each clone was harvested and fermented separately (you can see details on the clones below!) with the harvest date chosen to allow each grape to express its best characters. The case of EVOS12 (Eden Valley clone) was harvest earlier than the others to allow for a beautiful perfume and liveliness in the final wine. Fermentation is done in tiny open top fermenters which are hand plunged up to four times a day. Certain clones are fermented cooler to better express delicate aromatics whilst some are plunged and pumped over to achieve a more structural element. The trick is finding the right balance. Anyways, we love this wine and encourage you to give it a rip.

    96pts Kim Brebach, 94pts Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)
    Stunning modern Shiraz from one of the best vintages in the Barossa Valley in living memory. Polished black with exceptional intensity of black and blue fruits this is stunning now and will just keep getting better over the next 10 years. Dip a toe in the water now with a bottle or 2… we are quietly confident you’ll be back for a case or 3 to luxuriate in over the next decade or so.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts Kim Brebach, 94pts Sam Kim
    A truly beautiful and fruit driven blend of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. The Grenache here brings spice, confected notes, raspberries, rhubarb and sour cherry. The Mataro offers chocolate, brooding brambles and other slightly angry things sourced from dungeons deep. The Shiraz brings blue and black fruits, chocolate and fine, fine tannins. It’s a mad mélange this, one we’ll tip our hat to, whilst asking for it to be filled.

    90pts Sam Kim
    This is a Shiraz made in the Appassimento style made famous by the Amarone wines of Valpollicella. Essentially, high quality fruit is picked and then air dried before fermentation, building concentration, colour, smoothness and richness. This one is excellent, juicy, rich with an incredibly smooth palate and great depth of flavour. There are blue and black fruits, pudding spices, plenty of acid and fine tannins.
