Prager Gruner Veltliner Federspiel Hinter der Burg 2015 (750 ml) Heartland Directors' Cut Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (750 ml) Heartland Directors' Cut Shiraz 2013 (750 ml)
WA 89

From a classified vineyard since 1521, the 2015 Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Hinter der Burg is a clear, intense and juicy wine with white fruit aromas and a vibrant acidity. Medium-bodied and mineral in the finish, this is a serious expression of terroir in a lighter, very clear and refreshing style from gravelly soils. Good tension and intensity.

Inky ruby. Vibrant, smoke-accented dark berries, cracked pepper and a hint of mocha on the perfumed nose. Silky, seamless and pliant, offering sweet blackberry and blueberry compote flavors and a repeating peppery quality. Gentle tannins provide shape to the very long, spicy finish, which leaves a suave blue quality behind.

- Antonio Galloni, Vinous
V 92

Glass-staining purple. Complex aromas of ripe blackberry, vanilla, potpourri and smoky minerals, with a floral accent building in the glass. Very sweet and supple in texture, with intense black and blue fruit and violet pastille flavors gaining weight and spiciness with air. Finishes sappy and very long, with supple tannins, impressive vivacity and lingering floral and vanilla notes. This youthful wine deserves some patience.

WS 93, WA 92

Densely packed, focused and brimming with blueberry, currant and plum fruit notes that play against a blanket of fine tannins, picking up savory accents as the finish keeps pumping gracefully. Best from 2017 through 2022.

WA 93+, WS 92

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 Plexus has a seriously spicy perfume over a core of baked raspberries, crushed blackberries and red currant jelly, plus wafts of pepper and tar. Ripe, rich and medium to full-bodied, the palate offers a gorgeous, velvet-lined texture, with savory and earthy flavors coming through on the long finish.

- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Oct, 2016)
The palate is powerful and extremely focused with great depth of fruit character that is well framed by fine grain tannin, and drawn together to a long finish by naturally balanced acidity. Aged in fine grained oak predominantly hogsheads (70% new being a blend of 80% French and 20% French coopered American oak plus 30% being one and two year old French/American oak) for 18 months.
St Hallett Old Block Shiraz, Barossa 2010 (750 ml) Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon, South Australia 2015 (750 ml) Glaetzer Anaperenna - Godolphin, Barossa Valley 2012 (750 ml)
WE 93, WS 92

This is a savory style of Shiraz that remains very drinkable. Despite being full-bodied, it's bright and refreshing on the palate, delivering notions of cracked pepper, sour plum and roasted meat. The long finish is simultaneously dusty and mouth-watering. Drink now–2025.

WS 92, WA 91+, WE 91

Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407 is a little reticent at this stage, offering glimpses at black berry, black plum and pencil shavings notes with hints of menthol, earth and cloves. Full-bodied, concentrated and packed with black fruits and cedary flavors, it has a firm structure of grainy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long.

- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Oct, 2017)
WA 93, V 93, WS 92

A blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2012 Anaperenna is profoundly scented of creme de cassis, blueberry compote and black cherry pie with hints of aniseed, pepper, chargrilled meat and underbrush. Big, full-bodied and voluptuous on the palate, the generous blend of blackberry and meaty, savory flavors is structured by a solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and refreshing acid through the very long finish. Drink it now to 2024+.

Two Hands Wines Bella's Garden Shiraz 2014 (750 ml) Hewitson Old Garden Mourvedre, Barossa Valley 2010 (750 ml) Glaetzer Amon-Ra Shiraz 2014 (750 ml)
WS 93

Aromatic, with a touch of dried rose petal and white pepper up front, giving way to a smooth and supple blend of black tea, cherry and huckleberry flavors. Touches of vanilla and spice show on the finish, with the tannins developing a slight chew. Drink now through 2026.

- Maryann Worobiec, Wine Spectator (July, 2015)
WA 92

With a medium density of garnet color, the 2010 Mourvedre Old Garden is evolving into a meat and earth-laced bake berry and preserved plum character with nuances of new leather and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers plenty of earthy/savory flavor with a firm backbone of chewy tannins and a good, long finish.

- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (June, 2015)
WA 96+, V 94

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Amon-Ra Shiraz has a youthfully mute nose, offering glimpses at the blackberry, blackcurrant and licorice core, plus suggestions of dark chocolate, cigar boxes, fertile earth and baking spices. The full-bodied palate delivers concentrated, muscular blackberry and earth flavors with plenty of freshness and a beautiful backbone of finely grained tannins, finishing with commendable persistence and layers. This is a great contender for wine of the vintage!
