    2017 Winemakers Selection Shiraz – Nick Butler, The Real Review (October 2019)

    Dark cherry and showing signs of development (in hue). Plums – black and red – an attractive mix of nutmeg and white pepper, charry oak. Cool-climate pepper carries through to the palate. Supple and ripe, the tannins are integrated and chalky. Exceptional value at the price. 91/100 points.

    2017 Winemakers Selection Shiraz – John Lewis (November 2019)

    With 13.5% alcohol and glowing purple-tinted crimson in the glass, this bouquet garni-scented shiraz features spicy black cherry front-palate flavour. The middle palate has blood plum. licorice, cloves and cherry oak and the finish ferric tannins. Cellar over five years and drink with slow-cooked shoulder of lamb.

    2017 Winemakers Selection Shiraz – Vinonotebook (November 2019)

    Offers up plenty of quality fruit driven aromas: dark cherry, kirsch, spiced plum, blackberry, clove studs and a hint of crushed eucalypt. Ripe without being crass, the medium-full bodied palate delivers with fine, firm tannins in balance with spiced blue and purple berries. The oak is used to frame the picture, not star in it. Quality and value. 18/20.

    2017 Winemakers Selection Shiraz – John Rozentals (Aug 2019)

    Shaw Wines 2017 Winemaker’s Selection Shiraz ($20): Ideal ripening conditions have created a red wine that we’re lucky to have in Australia at the price. It has ample varietal and regional mintiness, and plenty of mid-palate richness along with firm tannins and deftly handled oak. I’ve recommended this sort of red before as being the perfect match for classy pizza and I see no reason to change that assessment in this case.
