A collaboration between Ben Riggs and Tony Parkinson of Penny’s Hill, Black Chook is the bigger sibling from the Woop Woop wineworks. The backbone of Shiraz is sourced from good vineyards in McLaren Vale, sites that are nourished by a Mediterranean climate, winter dominant rainfall, warm, dry summers and low humidity. Further components from choice vineyards along the Limestone Coast infuse the palate with exciting blackcurrant and eucalypt characters. Vinified in a combination of fermenters, a period of maceration on skins intensifies the colour and extracts sleek tannins. Maturation in a selection of fine oak barrels serves to soften and integrate the palate, developing velvety mouthfeel.
 
Bright garnet colour. A plum and chocolate nose filled with hints of ripe berries and gentle spice. The palate is smooth and layered with rich flavours supported by supple vanilla oak and firm tannins, culminating in a long lingering finish of soft varietal plum and cherry characters, but not without the varietal punch of ground pepper and spice. A suitable accompaniement to flavourful braises and grilled meats.

Clonakilla ORiada Shiraz 2010
Hilltops
Sean O'Riada is one of the heroes of modern Ireland. A talented musician and composer, he is credited with taking traditional Irish music out of the pubs and bringing it to the world.

It has been a remarkable journey for Clonakilla. When John Kirk first planted vines in 1971 he had no idea that his vineyard would be celebrated as one of the finest in Australia. Along the way there have been trials and tribulations as well as moments of unprecendented success. Over time it has become clear that the combination of the Murrumbateman region and Shiraz are one of those rare synergies which produce extraordinary wines. O'Riada owes it's genesis to a disastrous vintage year when an unfavourable growing season drastically reduced the Clonakilla harvest. The best local vineyards had to be sourced from which to collate the quality of fruit worthy of the Clonakilla label, O'Riada Shiraz was born.
 
Dark scarlet colour. The aroma is a festival of spice, milled pepper and clove, nutmeg and fresh garden herbs. Plum, black cherries and piquant spice characters cascade over a medium bodied palate, well supported by fine, supple tannins.

Coldstone Shiraz Viognier 2006
Alpine
A perfect harmony executed to perfection by one of the most proficient high country winemakers. Shiraz is co-fermented with the highly aromatic Viognier to complete a soft, elegant wine with alluring perfumes.

The Victorian Alps Winery retains sites in the King and Alpine Valleys that are nourished by an abundance of the coolest, clearest and cleanest natural rivers, lakes and springs. The cooler ripening conditions of the elevated aspects prevent high levels of transpiration, which encourages the grapes to retain natural acids, sugars and esters, thereby creating intense, lifted fruit flavours. Shiraz and Viognier grapes are harvested throughout the cool of the night to retain delicate fruit charaters. The two varieties were co-fermented in small steel vats and treated to maturation in a combination of French and American oak hogsheads for twelve months, followed by racking and bottling. Alcohol 14.5%
 
Magenta colour. An entrance of pepper and spice, hints of licorice, violet and white peach. The bouquet extends into vanilla and apricot expressions, a touch of coal from the Shiraz and hints of milky Swiss chocolate. Soft and silky on the palate, exhibiting hints of blackberry and vanilla. The wine of choice with gourmandise quail and truffled potatoes.
dArenberg Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier 2012
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
The vineyards and bushland which surround d'Arenberg winery are home to the native black and white kookaburra, famous for its distinctive laughing call. Much to the amusement of the winemaker's family, Chester Osborn's daughters, Alicia and Ruby, named their two wild pet kookaburras the laughing magpies. A good branding for McLaren Vale's first ever combination of the black Shiraz grape with the sweetly perfumed white Viognier. Declassified parcels of the icon Dead Arm Shiraz are assembled into the final Magpie mix.

Very concentrated ripe bunches of Shiraz and Viognier are gently crushed into the patented Demoisy open mouthed, rubber toothed crusher, then co-fermented together in good old fashioned headed down open fermenters, where they are treated to a traditional foot treading by wader clad feet. After a fortnight the musts are gently basket pressed through an ancient 19th Century Coq & Bromley and Tregoning press, followed by a transfer to a selection of French and American oak barriques for completion of ferments and maturation. Offcuts of Dead Arm Shiraz are selected from oak and included into the assemblage to balance the level of Viognier in the final Magpie. Alcohol 14.4%
 
Very dark crimson hue. Intense aromas, a floral mix of peach stone, jasmine and cranberry over dark maraschino cherries, star anise and spiced fruit cake. The palate is fully flavoured with ripe juicy soft mouthfilling flavours suggesting beetroot juice, blueberries, blackcurrant and red cherries with herbaceous edges that keep the palate in check.

The Buttery family is dedicated to producing interesting and appealing wines of the highest order from their McLaren Vale vineyards. They are also passionate about sound environmental practises, sustainable agriculture and innovation. They once took a punt and put all their hard earned money into a vineyard on Tatachilla Road at the heart of McLaren Vale. A few years later when the wine industry was struggling, they bought another vineyard with land on the eastern side of the region in the foothills near McLaren Flat and called it Gemtree. Bloodstone is treated to ten days traditional open fermentation before a gentle pressing into French oak barrels for a year's maturation.
 
Deep red colour, purple black hues. Violets, spicy red currants, plums and raspberry conserve on the bouquet. Just like a great dive, the palate entry is amazing. The front is dominated by plush, intense red fruits infused with subtle notes of liquorice and chocolate fanning across the mid to back. Layers of concentration, focused by balanced acidity and soft tannins, very harmonious. The finish shows a hint of savoury/ biscuit oak spice.

92.6 per cent Shiraz, 5%7 per cent Viognier, 1.7 per cent Durif. The fruit was fermented in a mixture of static and open top fermenters, for six days on skins. They wine was headed down up to eight times a day to extract the greatest colour and fruit flavours. The gentle method of draining and returning twice daily was undertaken to assist in colour and flavour development, and impart a soft tannin influence to the wine. After pressing, approximately 60 per cent of the wine finished fermentation in contact with oak staves and a portion (20 per cent) transferred to one to three year old French and American oak barrels for up to nine months maturation. Alcohol 13.5% PH 3.5 Acidity 6.5g/L.
 
Colour is a crimson red, with purple hues. Black plums, white pepper and lifted violets combine with hints of apricot and grapefruit from the Viognier. Plum fruit flavours and black spice dominate the palate. Rosewood-like tannins, huge on flavours, blackberry and tar, blueberry and earth, sweet acony leather and mild gumleaf. A bit of raw cocoa, wet slippery nutella and strawberry-like characters, well integrated oak and lifted white pepper nuances complement the soft, juicy finish. A hugely successfull food wine, that holds it's own and would bring great enjoyment to complicated faire like Moroccan lamb with cous cous. Drinking well now or can be cellared carefully for up to two more years.

Head Red is fashioned to be the most traditional style of Shiraz in Mr Head's portfolio. The Blonde vineyard at Stonewell is planted to sandy loam mixed with quartz over limestone base, a terroir which accentuates perfume and complexity in the grapes. The Brunette property is situated at a higher elevation in the Moppa district of Barossa Valley, a site of heavier soils, deep red clay and ironstones, terroirs which contribute structure and longevity to the finished wine. Shiraz is micro managed at every stage from vineyard to bottling, old fashioned open ferments and whole bunch vinifications are followed by a year's maturation in a selection of predominantly seasoned French oak hogsheads.
 
Deep, dark garnet red. A fragrant floral, apricot nose followed by juicy blackberry scents and spiced plum notes. A solid palate of spiced currant and Barossa chocolate plum flavours, are supported by firm but judicious tannins behind a veneer of subtle milky oak. Mid palate richness is held in check by a squeeze of drying Rhone styled acids, generous yet refined right through to the finish.
Head The Blonde Stonewell Shiraz Viognier 2015
Barossa

There's a legend about Comte Maugiron who owned the steeply terraced hills of Cote Rotie. He was blessed with two beautiful daughters, one a blonde, the other brunette. When the good Count retired he passed the two Cotes to his daughters. They are still referred to as Cote Blonde and Cote Brune. Head's Blonde comes from a single vineyard at Stonewell, a site of sandy loam mixed with quartz over limestone base, unique blonde soils, which translate into a wine of accentuated perfume and profound complexity.

Alex Head has long been interested in Rhone Valley wines and their symbiosis with all things culinary. In particular, Shiraz from Rhone Valley's Cote Rotie. Head worked vintage with the wineries he held in the highest regard. Tyrrells and Torbreck, Laughing Jack and Cirillo. To create a unique old world style of Barossa Valley wine, Alex Head has selected a vineyard similar to Côte Rotie, where the soils produce contrasting styles of fruit. Our beautiful Blonde has been treated to the luxury of whole bunch ferments, daily foot treading over the course of a fortnight, hand plunging and pumpovers, followed by a year's maturation in an extravagantly high proportion of new 300L French hogsheads.
 
A deeply coloured wine. Fragrant camomile and star anise, blackberry and bramble aromas with some underlying savoury notes. The palate is generous and minerally with blackberry, liquorice and sage flavours over fine loose knit grainy tannins. Archetypal Stonewell Shiraz, with highly perfumed fruit, plenty of substance and great length of flavour, will continue to evolve middle palate richness.

Deep scarlet red with purple hues. Lifted, regional nose of blackcurrants and dark berry fruit, menthol notes highlight toasted oak characters and carry aromatics onto the palate.

Henschke Henrys Seven 2015
Eden Valley
Available by the dozen
The archetypal Rhonesque fusion of Shiraz and Grenache, Viognier and Mourvedre which dates back to the early pioneering days and reflects the history, religion and culture of Barossa Valley. Henrys Seven is a tribute to Henry Evans who planted the first seven acres of vineyard at Keyneton in 1853. He quickly developed a reputation for producing the best wines in the southern colony. Following Henry's death in 1868, his widow Sarah exercised her principles of temperance by closing the winery and uprooting all the historic vines.

The team at Innocent Bystander work with like minded growers to assemble the finest fruit. Components from great Victorian vineyards are determined each year to create a consistent style from one vintage to the next. Grapes are destemmed into small open fermenters, a deliberately small portion is incorporated as whole bunches. Treated to a cold maceration before a mainly wild vinification, ferments are plunged and drained regularly, while some experience a post ferment maceration to soften tannins. The wine is pressed, settled and gravity drained to a selection of exclusively French oak barriques and puncheons for malolactic and extended maturation.
 
Bright garnet red. A nose of orange zest and five spice, juniper and campari, cherry ripe, red summer berries, dark chocolates and cocoa. Firm bright tannins in support of brooding textures, wild blackberries and raspberry, a long savoury finish. Yarra fruit delivers spice and backbone while the Pyrenees contributes spiced plum and chocolate characters.
