Heartland Directors Cut Shiraz Langhorne Creek 2016 je Flasche 19.95€
Wir erwarten neue Ware.
 
Tasting Notes:
The dark purple colour is a clear indication of the intensity that awaits in your glass. The nose is inundated with berry compote and a decorative topping of fresh berries. These are accented by whispers of spice. The palate offers juicy plums and chocolate dipped dried fruits. There are hints of oregano and thyme to be sort out. The finish is long and the freshness unmistakable.

Vinification:
The grapes are selected from some of the best Shiraz vineyards in the region. These vineyards are chosen for the consistent intensity and texture of the fruit. The strictest pruning techniques are used. The fruit for Directors’ Cut Shiraz was harvested at night and then crushed to small open top stainless-steel fermenters. After 24 hours of skin contact fermentation was commenced with our Rhône isolate yeast. Following 10 days of cool fermentation on skins and pumped over 3 times daily, the wine was transferred to French and American oak hogsheads for 14 months maturation. In the 2018 vintage we have limited ourselves to 40% new oak to ensure the fruit remained the focus.

2018 Vintage:
Steady winter rainfall and multiple flood events gave us a good storage of moisture and healthy vines leading into the growing season. Higher than average summer temperatures have offered up robust fruit characters that Shiraz loves to present.

Shaw & Smith Pinot Noir 2018 Adelaide Hills je Flasche 25.50€


The 2018 vintage has a concentrated core of red berry fruits including raspberries and cherries. It is vibrant and more opulent than other years.

Outstanding quality from a growing season that threatened, at times, to be tricky. After some heat in January. the moderate. dry and sunny months of February and March delivered beautifully balanced fruit. Crop levels were slightly below average, enhancing flavour and intensity.

Pinot Noir is the most temperamental of varieties and remains a challenge for site, season and winemaking - Shaw + Smith has joined the quest albeit in a ‘small batch’ way. First produced experimentally in 2004 and commercially in 2007. Site selection, the right clonal mix, minuscule yields and fastidious vineyard management are essential to success.

Shaw & Smith Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2017 mit 96 SucklingpunktenVerkostungsnotiz James Suckling vom 02. Juli 2020:

A cooler vintage has bent this to a peppery and spicy zone with a very fragrant, sappy delivery of bright raspberries, red plums and blackberries. Oak bolsters the spicy direction of the fruit here. The palate has a succulent and mouthwateringly fresh core of red fruit with sleek and long, polished tannins. Red-cherry and plum finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

95 Sucklingpunkte für denVerkostungsnotiz James Suckling vom 02. Juli 2020:
Very attractive blueberries and dark plums here with earthy and spicy aromas, as well as black pepper. The palate is filled with fleshy fruit and has dark-cherry, cherry-liqueur and dark-chocolate flavors in abundance. Long flavors, plush smooth tannins and certainly a richer iteration of this wine. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Style: Shaw + Smith Shiraz is a medium bodied cool-climate Shiraz, in which balance is more important than power.
The 2018 vintage is defined by balance and effortless flow. It was a great season for Shiraz with generosity, but structure to match.

Season: Outstanding quality from a growing season that threatened, at times, to be tricky. After some heat in January, the moderate, dry and sunny months of February and March delivered beautifully balanced fruit. Crop levels were slightly below average, enhancing flavour and intensity.

Source: From low yielding vines predominantly at Balhannah in the central Adelaide Hills, and from Echunga and Macclesfield to the south.

Vinification: Hand picked and fermented as a combination of whole berries and whole bunches in open fermenters, with gentle plunging and minimal working. Aged in French oak for fourteen months, of which one third was new.

Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay Adelaide Hills 2020 je Flasche 28.95€
96

Ganz auf Eleganz, Zurückhaltung und Alterungsfähigkeit setzt der Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay Adelaide Hills 2020. Mit einer feinen Säure und großzügig im Geschmack. Typischerweise zeigt er Aromen von weißen Blüten, Zitrusfrüchten und Nektarinen. Der Jahrgang 2020 war sehr ertragsarm , was zu einer großen Konzentration führte. Die kühlen Reifebedingungen ermöglichten einen Chardonnay mit intensiven Aromen und ausgezeichneter Harmonie.


96 Sucklingpunkte für denJames Suckling zum Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay Adelaide Hills 2020 (3. Februar 2022):

Ripe peach, lemon and plenty of toasted hazelnut oak, sitting on a mix of flint and wet stones. The palate has great density and depth with concentrated peach and lemon. A little pastry, too. Smooth, with bright acidity. Impressive depth and balance here. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

"Ein Knaller in diesem Preissegment mit hervorragender mineralischer Frische"

schreibt der in Australien beheimatete Master of Wine Andrew Caillard. Und zückt die 98 Punkte-Karte. Kein Wunder, verlief die Vegetationsperiode für den Jahrgang 2021, nach einem traumatischen 2020, hervorragend. Die Regenfälle im Winter sorgten für viel Feuchtigkeit im Boden, die sich in einer gesunden Ernte niederschlug. Der Sommer war mild, langsam reifend, mit viel Geschmack. Die ganze Pracht des Jahrgangs 2021 schlage sich in der kristallklaren quarzgrünen Farbe des Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay Adelaide Hills 2021 nieder, schreibt denn auch James Halliday. 97 Punkte kommen von dem wohl bekanntesten australischen Weinkritiker.
 
 
95 Sucklingpunkte für den Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay Adelaide Hills 2021James Suckling zum Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay Adelaide Hills 2021 (Oktober 2022):

This is such a beautifully crafted Adelaide Hills chardonnay! Complex, flinty nose with notes of toasted baguette, lime zest, Asian pear and fresh pineapple. I love the underplayed power on the very focused, medium-bodied palate. Fine tannins underline the long and intense wet-stone finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Penfolds Grange 2014 BIN 95 Shiraz South Australia
98




98 Parker Punkte für den Penfolds Grange 2014 BIN 95 Shiraz South AustraliaJoe Czerwinski beschreibt den Penfolds Grange 2013 am 04.Oktober 2018 wie folgt:

Rich. concentrated and intense, the 2014 Grange delivers exactly what we've come to expect from this Penfolds icon wine. It's full-bodied, velvety in feel and loaded with plummy fruit, framed in vanilla and cedar. Dense, powerful and tannic, it should prove to be long lived, even by Grange standards. Gago doesn't rate the vintage overall that highly, but he says the selection this year for Grange was a bit more stringent and that production levels were just average. There are still over 1.000 cases for the United States.
