94/100
Wine Spectator
Ripe and generous, with a remarkably open texture for a wine so rich in flavor. The beautifully delineated blackberry, black cherry and anise flavors sail on through the long, long finish.

The 2005 Shiraz 'Lily's Garden' from McLaren Vale has a splendid nose of cedar, scorched earth, violets, spice box, saddle leather, and blueberry pie. Rich and super-concentrated, it has layers of ripe flavors, a soft blanket of tannins, and terrific complexity. This surprisingly elegant Shiraz will evolve for 8-10 years and drink well through 2025.

Wine Companion
Deep colour, though slightly less purple than Bella's Garden; powerful, strongly regional style, dark chocolate and earth intermingling with blackberry fruit; firm but not rough tannins.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Dark purple. Fresh red and dark berry aromas are accented by sexy floral and mineral nuances. This suave, silky midweight features luscious raspberry and blueberry flavors brightened by zesty minerality and firmed by youthful tannins. A subtle vanilla note come up on the finish, which features powerful red and blue fruit flavors, a velvety texture and excellent persistence.

Two Hands-Bella's Garden-Shiraz-2005-3L

Dense purple red almost black.  A powerful nose of ripe plums and succulent blackberries laced with a hint of cedar spice. Wow!  Bella's as always shows amazing depth and power whilst maintaining an elegant fruit purity.  Matured in all French oak, the majority being seasoned barrels, allowing the fruit to do the talking with only the merest hint of cedar oak to support the ripe plum and mulberry flavours.  Finely woven tannins produce a long linear wine forming a race track like structure along the palate.  Great length and persistency of flavour.

RBJ-Theologicum-Mataro-2002-1.5L

The 2002 RBJ Theologicum is a brilliant tilt at the Southern Rhone; a dark-hued, firmly constructed, robust red with loads of pepper and spice on the nose. On the palate there are wads of raspberries and dark berry fruit, while the finish is long, dry and rewarding.

Two Hands-Deer in Headlights-Shiraz-2003-6.0L

2003 vintage:

Winter started with heavy rains, which tapered off resulting in below average rainfalls and a successful budburst in early spring. Flowering and set occurred in November, promoting uniform berry development and bunch numbers were on average for the season. Veraison for Shiraz and Cabernet started in late January with the older vines producing lighter crops. The height of summer saw 65mm of rainfall in the last week of February requiring swift viticultural practices to prevent the onset of disease and fungus. Our 2003 Barossa Shiraz displayed great colour and depth of flavour. Yields overall were below the long-term average but the grapes were of good quality and the resultant wines display terrific potential.

 

Wine description:

Bright purple plum colour. Glossy red fruits and spiced plum cake on the nose with a hint of vanilla spice. The palate shows swathes of rich generous fruit, ripe blackberry intermingled with soft cedary spice. A fine coating of gentle tannins washes over the palate with a long and persistent finish to end.

d'Arenberg-The Ironstone Pressings-Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre-2003-1.5L

Dark vibrant saturated colours. Very youthful and compressed with the oak barely noticeable. The wine is dominated by the fragrance of red berries, spice, sour to roasted cherry, plum and cut flower stems.

 

The spices and earth from the Grenache, and amazing sweetness (often referred to as the blood of the blend) and very long gritty vibrant tannins. The Shiraz adds slight spicy red mulberry, potpourri fruit characters then the liquorish and prune characters, as well as a boldness mid-way in the taste (often referred to as the flesh of the wine).

 

The Mourvedre adds notes of ripe salami, iodine, lavender characters and late grainy tannin (often referred to as the bones of the wine).
