Some special mentions for a couple of classics that are rolling vintages. 

2006 Henley Shiraz – 97 points (5 stars)

“A magnificent offering; the immensely complex bouquet shows blackberry, plum jam, cake spice, cocoa and cedar characters with a subtle lift of floral.

The palate is superbly concentrated and sumptuous, exhibiting outstanding depth and power, brilliantly framed by velvety tannins.

Seamless and impressively long on the finish. At its best: 2020 to 2036.”

 

2014 Jacko’s Shiraz 94 points (5 stars)

“It is gorgeously fruited and aromatic on the nose showing blackberry, dark plum, vanilla and cedary oak characters with nuances of toasted spices.

The palate delivers lovely concentration and weight, together with supple mouthfeel and fleshy texture.

It is up front and flavoursome, loaded with delicious flavours. At its best: now to 2028.”
