Rampaging Rangas 2018 Shiraz Edition: Barossa vs Fleurieu

‘Tis a titanic battle and perhaps one you might expect the Barossa to win through sheer brute force. But the Curtis Limited McLaren will surprise you with it’s ability to push back, and Dandelion’s Firehawk Farm might just set fire to the Filsell’s claim to the crown… Taste, and all shall be red-vealed.

    Rampaging Rangas 2018 Shiraz Edition: Barossa vs Fleurieu

    This time around we have 6 Shiraz from the exceptional 2018 vintage vying for the title; 3 from the Barossa and 3 from the Fleurieu Peninsula. Here’s what set out tongues a’wagging and titillated our tastebuds:

    Wines In This Pack
    McLaren Vale, SA
    96pts Sam Kim, Gold Medal
    This is a full bodied beast of a Shiraz. We reckon this one will improve with cellaring for 20 years, such is its structure and depth of blue and black fruits. Length and persistence are exceptional. An exceptional follow up to the highly awarded 2016 vintage.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    2 x Gold Medals, 97pts Kim Brebach, 91pts James Halliday, 93pts The Real Review
    This is just the second release of Firehawk Farm which is produced from Dandelion’s finest vineyard. There is mammoth concentration of fruit here and perfect integration of fruit, oak and acid. Closed on opening, this morphs into an absolute stunner as is breathes and opens over several days. Sweet fruit, searing acid, savoury complexities, chocolate, graphite and blue fruits are all on show along with earthiness, cedar and plenty of tannin. This might just be the McLaren Vale’s best Shiraz.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    Gold Medal, 96pts Andrew Caillard, 94pts James Halliday, 92pts Stuart Knox
    Big, rich, dark and decadent, this is a lovely and well-balanced Barossa Shiraz. Dark fruits are joined by raspberries, fine tannins and just a little vanillin oak. There is plenty of acid on the finish which would help the wine cut through a rich steak with well-rendered fat.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts James Halliday, 93pts Nick Butler
    From 60-year-old vines in the northwest Barossa. This is rich and deeply coloured wine. Black plums, woodsmoke, iron filings, blackberry jam, red fruits and dark chocolate all in evidence. A cracker!
    Fleurieu Peninsula, SA
    2 x Gold Medals, 93pts Sam Kim, 93pts Kim Brebach
    A deep purple colour announces a wine of depth and intensity. Flavours include black cherries, plum, dark chocolate, and white pepper finished with a little smoky oak. Tannins are fine and supple. Drink over the next 5-8 years.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    Gold Medal, 90pts Sam Kim
    A perfumed, red fruited, gold medal winning Barossa Shiraz. Dark berries and spice, with red fruit flavours ceding to black. There is also toasty oak, good acidity and fine tannin.
