94 points James Halliday: "Selective-harvested, a mix of new and old clones destemmed and co-fermented, 10 days on skins, then pressed to French barriques (10% new) for mlf and 11 months maturation. Bright, clear crimson-purple-hue; Helen's Hill nailed this wine in a hectic vintage, the fragrant, high-toned flavours of red cherries and berries make oak a vehicle, not an end in itself." (08/2019)

While the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy may be unfamiliar to many here in the States, in Australia it is among the most prestigious honors a wine can receive. As our Aussie buyer Thomas Smith mentions, if our shipment of this wine wasn’t on the water when it got this accolade, there would be no way we could get this kind of quantity or pricing. We’re thrilled to be able to share this lucky break with our clients. We're even more excited to find the wine is every bit as good as its billing. We’ve been singing the praises of Xanadu for years now, so it only...

96 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, whole berries and whole bunches small batch open-fermented, larger concrete fermenters at the original winery also included for extended maceration on skins for 2 weeks, matured for 19 months in French oak (27% new). Both bouquet and medium-bodied palate offer a tapestry of black fruits, spices and black pepper, tannins woven through the succulent, juicy black fruits, French oak there or thereabouts, and fine lingering tannins. " (08/2017) 92 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Potent, mineral-accented dark berry, col...

96 points James Halliday: "Whole berry/carbonic maceration ferment, matured in French barriques for 16 months. This hits like a thunderstorm after you have navigated the fragrant bouquet and taken the first sip. Blackberry, red and black cherries and plum flood the fore and mid-palate before the whirlwind of black pepper, spice, licorice and dark chocolate take command before the fine, persistent tannins on the long finish and aftertaste." (08/2018) 94 points Sam Kim: "It is sweetly fragrant on the nose showing blackberry, plum jelly, thyme, toasted al...

93 points James Halliday: "9% Malbec included here, and I think it has its say. There's ample classic Margaret River Cabernet character for sure, and some vanilla and chocolate, but there's an (attractive) sappy raspberry/mulberry nuance in the bouquet and palate that's a little different. Overall it's impeccably well balanced and supple, flavoursome but not heavy. It's ready when you are." (08/2019) 93 points James Suckling: "Lots of plum and berry character with hints of rose petals and stems, too. Medium body, firm and lightly chewy tannins and a fl...

97 points James Halliday: "From the red volcanic soils of Woori Yallock. Hand-picked and sorted, 100% destemmed and wild-fermented with 21 days on skins, matured for 12 months in French oak (10% new). Has the wonderful colour, and the fragrance of spices, forest and red fruits, the palate with luscious fruit encased in silky tannins. Has the balance and length of great young Pinot whatever its provenance. " (08/2019) 96-97 points James Suckling: "Tasted the final blend pre-bottling. A parcel from the Henk Vineyard. This has an entrancing nose of ripe ...

94 points James Halliday: "The youthful colour has the depth to promise abundant black fruits, whole berry fermentation underlining the promise. It has the succulence of Langhorne Creek, but with a raft of flowery/spicy notes not so common in the region. Mocha oak adds another dimension, cuddling up to the plump tannins. Hedonistic? You bet." (05/2017)

2017 Oakridge "Original Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon Yarra Valley Victoria
Top Pick!
97 points Bob Campbell: "Medium to deep red/purple colour with a bright, fresh, clean cabernet aroma of sweet cassis and background cedar. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with restrained but glorious flavour, and is slightly closed. It has a tight, firm palate, but reveals more and more blackberry, blackcurrant cabernet character as it airs in the glass. It's elegant and texturally refined. A beautiful cabernet with a big future. It demands patience. (Fruit is off the original Oakridge vineyard at Seville, to mark the Oakridge 40th anniversary.) (Huo...


95 points Decanter: "The fragrant bouquet of creamy Christmas cake leads into a multifaceted palate of black fruit, prune, spice and cassis with affably dry, chalky notes. Bursting with quality. " K&L Notes: Platinum - Best in Show: Best Value Red Rhône Varietals - Decanter World of Wine Awards, 2017

90 points Wine Spectator: "Distinctive, with a fresh note of spearmint complementing the juicy core of plum and blackberry flavors. Herb, chai tea and cigar box elements linger on the long, expressive finish, where the tannins firm up but never get in the way. *Best Value* (MW)" (12/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium-bodied 2016 The Stump Jump Shiraz is another terrific bargain. No, it's not a big, plush wine, but it is a crisp, remarkably drinkable mouthful of Shiraz. Red plums and cherries are buttressed by enough tannins so that this c...

92 points James Halliday: "It sits on the lighter side of medium-bodied but it's juicy, characterful and terrific to drink. It provokes the words 'there should be more wines like this'. Coffee grounds, licorice, deli meats, black pepper. A general plumminess too, and it's from here the flavour profile takes its sway. Every step of the way it feels and tastes good." (08/2018) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "This blend from Central Victoria includes Shiraz from cool-climate sites as well as fruit from some warmer vineyards. It comes together in a wine that’s ...

91 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Lively, spice-tinged aromas of cherry and dark berries, joined by slowly emerging woodsmoke and floral nuances. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that fan out slowly on the back half. Fine-grained tannins shape the very long, spicy finish, which shows very good clarity and lift. (JR)" (10/2017) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "There’s a silken texture to the tannins, and tight, fresh strawberry notes to the fruit, if you’re patient and give this wine plenty of air. It might st...


94 points James Halliday: "Matured for 15 months in French oak (10% new). Richly robed in luscious fruits supported by gentle tannins and a dab of oak. It is well made (of course) and is strongly Barossan in temperament. What you make of this will depend on your personal preference." (08/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro blend, the 2015 Plexus has a pale to medium garnet-purple color and nose of kirsch, red currant jelly and raspberry preserves with hints of Chinese five spice, hoisin, roses, black pepper and un...

95 points Decanter: "Cascading chocolate and plum and a herbal bitters note. Serious depth, rigorous tannins and acidity. (MJ) " (09/2019) 94 points James Suckling: "Impressive richness and depth from the outset here. The nose has rich dark-plum, chocolate and earth aromas with such poise and richness. The palate is full-bodied with saturated plums and blackberries. Long, ribbony tannins. Drink or hold. Screw cap." (06/2019)

97 points James Halliday: "60% Barossa Valley, 40% Eden Valley grapes, open-fermented with submerged cap, matured for 15 months in new (33%) and used French hogsheads. Deeply coloured; this is at once full-bodied and elegant, not a common marriage with young red wines with decades in front of them. The flavours are all black: blackberry, blackcurrant, black cherry, earth and licorice. The old vines have also provided ripe tannins, the whole theme resonated with oak a la Grange. " (08/2018)

2014 Leeuwin "Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $65) (Elsewhere $65)
Top Pick!
96 points Bob Campbell: "Very deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is all about concentrated, perfectly-ripened cabernet fruit embellished with stylish oak. Cedar and berries. The wine is very intense and cast in an elegant but full-bodied style, with red berry fruit in abundance on the palate. The tannins are emphatic but fine and restrained, beautifully tailored. A lovely wine indeed - to cellar or enjoy now. (Huon Hooke - The Real Review)" (05/2018) 93 points James Halliday: "Reticent. Firmly structured. Southern Margaret River across its verdant vei...

94 points James Suckling: "This sits in the typical, just Cabernet-dominant style (54%) and marries cassis, blueberries, leaves and cedary-dominant aromas with more substantial blackberries and dark cherries, as well as redder tones at the finish. The regional sourcing here is cleverly played and delivers a fleshy, soft and smooth wine in 2017. Long, vanilla-laced after-trail. Drink over the next fifteen years. A stallion in the cellar!" (07/2019) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant, smooth and supple, showing off cedar, black tea and sandalwood aromas,...

92 points Decanter: "The richer counterpart to Bin 128, this warm-climate blend of Barossa, McLaren Vale and Padthaway fruit (no Upper Adelaide or Wrattonbully fruit in this vintage) is a deep, primary dark ruby colour. And yet it's from a cool growing season, with the harvest finishing a month later than the previous year. It displays a subdued, spicy richness of aroma spliced with a hint of cooler vintage pepper. The palate though is typically generously fruited, with blackberry fruit infused with Penfolds’ trademark toasty vanillin American oak - an u...

Bob Campbell: "Deepish red/purple colour, with a shy, earthy bouquet showing some tomato-bush and undergrowth notes. The palate is medium to full-bodied and well presented, with slightly grabby tannins, but all in all, very good value at the price. (Huon Hooke, The Real Review)" (02/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon The Cover Drive has a classic cassis and dried herbs-scented nose with suggestions of pencil shavings, underbrush and cloves. Medium-bodied, youthful and elegantly played on the mouth, ...
Price: $14.99

95 points James Halliday: "The clonal mix (Oberlin, Abel and 777) gives complexity through the bouquet, palate and finish. Notes of plum join the red fruits of its 777 clone sibling. Has excellent line, length and balance, the 30% whole bunch inclusion pefect." (08/2018) 92 points Sam Kim: "It is beautifully complex on the nose showing dark cherry, plum, clove, nutmeg, dried herb and earthy mushroom characters. The palate is flavoursome and silky, and displays attractive fruit intensity as well as savoury nuances, elegantly structured by polished tanni...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Reserve Shiraz was sourced from a 45-year-old vineyard and aged for 18 months in small and large French and American oak. Opaque purple/black in color, it gives up a lavish perfume of smoke, mineral, game, bacon, and blueberry that leaps from the glass. Thick, opulent, and intense, it coats the mouth with savory fruit, spices, and a hint of chocolate. Seamless on the palate, it nevertheless conceals enough structure to evolve for a decade for those able to resist its immediate come-on. It should be at it...
Price: $124.99

94 points James Suckling: "A beautiful, refined and punchy young red. There’s a lively edge to it with charcoal and licorice to the dark fruit. Medium-bodied, firm and lively. Tight and focused with linear tannins. Drink or hold. " (06/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It's another successful vintage for this wine, which gives consumers a taste of the Torbreck style at a reasonable price. The 2018 Woodcutter's Shiraz offers raspberry and mulberry flavors, a full-bodied, plush, supple palate and savory hints of mocha and black olive on the...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-brick colored, the 2005 Ancient Way Vineyard Summer's Vineyard gives up stewed tea, tobacco and tilled earth scents over a core of plum preserves, mincemeat pie, cherry cordial and chocolate box plus touches of truffles and smoky bacon. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has compelling earthy accents and a good long finish. (LPB)" (12/2018) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Deeply pitched dark fruit preserve aromas show a superripe, decadent character, w...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Shiraz Seven Acre is an opulent hussy boasting magnificent fruit concentration, enormous body as well as length, and surprising elegance and purity. As always, the fruit and vineyard character dominate because no new oak is utilized in these offerings. (RP)" (10/2004)



96 points James Halliday: "An elegant grenache that speaks loudly about place and variety. The balance, texture, structure and flavour of red fruits run the length of the palate. It was the first vineyard David Paxton acquired (in '79) with some vines dating back to 1887, in a unique side valley with very cool mornings. " (11/2019) 92 points James Suckling: "There’s a real sense of depth and ripe berries here with raspberry and blueberry-pastry aromas, leading to licorice and violet-like flowers. The palate has a thread of salted licorice with suppl...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve could easily be called a Pauillac from Australia. Dense ruby/purple, a classic Cabernet nose of cedar wood, smoke, cassis, mineral, lead pencil, and new oak soars from the glass. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, with fabulous concentration and multi-layered texture, high levels of glycerin, and a seamless, concentrated, long finish with well-integrated tannin, acidity, and alcohol. This is no wimpish wine at 14.6% alcohol, but sadly, there are only 290 cases of this 100% Cabern...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple, the 2010 Cluster M45 Shiraz has lovely floral and herbal notes wafting over a solid core of youthful blackberries and black cherries with nuances of Chinese five spice and cloves. Great intensity and balance in a rather modest medium-full body with great graininess to the tannins and plenty of freshness. It finishes long. Note that no 2011 Cluster M45 was produced. (LPB)" (02/2015) 95 points James Halliday: "Medium red-purple; while I remain to be convinced the baume (and hence alcohol) leve...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet in color, the 2002 Noon Eclipse contains 30% Langhorne Creek fruit from the “20 Rows” block. With evolving aromas of plum preserves, Christmas pudding, dark chocolate, espresso and licorice alongside nuances of earth and creme de cassis, this very big, rich and full-bodied wine offers plenty of dried fruit and spice flavor layers with just enough acid to refresh and a medium level of chewy tannins to frame. It finishes very long. Mature and drinking nicely now, it should cellar to 2017+. (LP...


92 points James Halliday: "Awash with dense sweet spicy fruit, some raspberry confection, musk and eucalypt mingling with cedary oak and warm earth notes. Fuller bodied, concentrated with slightly raspy tannins." (08/2017) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a polished and tightly wound blend that is savory and meaty in flavors of tart cranberry, hoisin sauce and cigar box. It's a medium- to full-bodied wine, wrapped in drying, chalky tannins, but ends on a fruity finish. (CP)" (12/2018) K&L Notes: 43% Grenache, 35% Shiraz, 22% Mataro

100 points James Suckling: "More depth than the four acres. This old plot was planted in 1867 and it has excelled in vintage 2017. The nose carries pristine aromas of raspberries, red plums and mulberries in gently spicy repose. The palate unfurls layers and layers of lightly spiced red- and dark-fruit flavors with tannins that seem to hold endlessly on the finish. Pitch-perfect and noble. An essay in grace and charm. Akin to grand cru Burgundy and maybe Musigny too! This really ought to be left alone for a decade" (10/2018) 97 points Bob Campbell: "De...

95 points James Halliday: "57% malbec, 37% petit verdot, 6% merlot, hand-picked on 11 Feb '17, when a total eclipse occurred, turning the moon red. Wild-fermented, matured for 9 months in French oak (10% new). It's a delectably juicy red berry wine with minimal interference from tannins, but will be no pushover as it ages. " (09/2019) K&L Notes: *Natural Wine* *Biodynamic*

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Some might feel the 2001 Shiraz Reserve is too much of a good thing, but it is neither port-like, pruny, nor flat. It is simply crammed with concentrated blackberry and cassis fruit in an obvious but spectacularly textured style. It possesses considerable nuances. Loaded and thick, with low acidity and huge amounts of tannin, all concealed by lavish quantities of fruit and extract, this stunning wine can be drunk now, but should age effortlessly for 7-10 years, possibly longer. No one really knows for sure given ...

98 points James Suckling: "Dark fruit with iodine, muscle shell and hints of coal on the palate. Full-bodied, very tight and structured with steely tannins that give incredible length and poise. The greatest Factor I have ever tasted. Driven and brilliant. Better after 2021." (05/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Torbreck's 2016 The Factor incorporates what winemaker Ian Hongell calls their "most structured Shiraz, from a lot of ironstone soils." It spends two years in French oak barriques, half of which were new, so it shows hints of ced...

2017 Torbreck "Woodcutter's" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia
Back In Stock!
93 points James Suckling: "Loads of brambleberries and dried elderberries are framed against dried meat, bark, vanilla, mocha and dark chocolate. Plush yet energetic on the palate, this weaves round, chewy and decadent tannins and runs them through a luxurious tapestry of dark fruit. Drink now or hold." (06/2019) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Aromatic and stylish, opening with violet, white pepper and subtle sweet cream notes. The core gushes with huckleberry and wild blueberry flavors, revealing shades of rosemary and apricot. Supple and smooth, with tan...

92 points Wine Spectator: " Shows appealing density and a savory thread, featuring rosemary, sage and loam details that mingle with firm currant and dried cherry flavors. Herbal shadings gain traction on the finish along with the dense tannins, adding an appealing fresh green note. Drink now through 2033. " (12/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There's no Bin 707 from the 2017 vintage, so that fruit has been put into the 2017 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a lifted, perfumed style of Cabernet aged in both French and American hogsheads,...

98 points Decanter: "Viognier (6%) is co-fermented with Shiraz from RunRig cuttings planted in 1994. Like a great Côte-Rôtie, it starts with a thrilling nose and doesn’t let up until a week after you’ve put down the glass. (MJ)" (08/2019) 97 points James Suckling: "A wine that really sits at the heart of the Torbreck DNA with plenty of blackberries and plums. Graphite and dark chocolate, too. There’s a beautifully exotic peppery and spicy edge here. The co-fermented viognier really is exceptional. The length and build on the palate is phenomenal and th...


2009 Hundred Acre "Deep Time - Ancient Way Vineyard Summer's Block" Barossa Valley Shiraz 2-pack in OWC
New!
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep garnet colored, the 2009 Ancient Way Vineyard Deep Time was in barrel for 60 months and has a pronounced, provocatively scented nose of Christmas cake, plum pudding, Indian spices and incense with suggestions of cardamom, eucalyptus, mocha and peppered salami. Big, rich and full-bodied, the velvety textured palate is bursting with black berry preserves, raisin cake and exotic spices with a refreshing lift on the very long finish. 2018-2038 (LPB)" (07/2018) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Central Otago Pinot Noir comes out of the chute a bit green and stemmy (it's 50% whole cluster). It clearly needs a year or two to settle down and integrate that element with the bold cherry fruit, but I have little doubt that those components will come together in time, resulting in a wine that's substantially more attractive than it is currently. It's medium to full-bodied, with ample ripeness, silky tannins and solid length on the finish, all of which augur well for the future. It's made at Giant Step...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made from a single plot of organically farmed old vines, this wine offers lively tones of red berry, rose, violet and herbal tonic, backed by cinnamon and clove spice. It's light, bright and easy to knock back, which belies just how well structured and complex it really is. This is a beautiful example of the variety McLaren's Vale does best. *Editors Choice* (CP)" (04/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon, fashioned from 15-year-old vines that yielded one ton of fruit per acre, reveals classic, intense aromas of creme de cassis intermixed with loamy soil, new saddle leather, and vanilla notes. Aged in neutral French oak for 26 months, this beauty is one of the finest Cabernets Greenock Creek has recently made. (RP)" (10/2004)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Eclipse (a blend of 66% Grenache and 34% Shiraz aged in American oak and bottled unfiltered) tips the scales at a hefty 14.9% alcohol. The wine has an opaque purple color as well as a fabulously sweet nose of blackberry and cassis liqueur interspersed with licorice, truffle, and vanillin. Full-bodied, heady, layered, ripe, pure, and sumptuous, it is a dazzling 1999 to drink over the next 15-16 years. (RP)" (06/2001) James Halliday: "Medium to full red-purple; the high alcohol (14.9°) is immediately obv...
