Featuring a range of styles that are sure to please many tastes, this recent report showcases wines, that have recently excited the Wine Spectator editors in their tastings.

2013 Kraehe House Block, Neldner Road, Marananga, Barossa Valley Shiraz

Bursting with wild berry and violet notes, this is vibrant and juicy, accented by fresh herb, black tea, spice and earth details. The tannins are fine-grained. Drink now through 2030.
94 points

2013 Secret Block, Wildlife Road, Moppa Hills, Barossa Valley Shiraz

Appealingly dense and fleshy, with generous blueberry and blackberry flavors wrapped in accents of licorice, dark chocolate and gingerbread. The finish is expansive, long and powerful. Drink now through 2030.
95 points

2013 Samantha’s Garden, Clare Valley Shiraz

The chocolate-covered cherry flavors are bright and bold, with plush tannins, accents of toasted rye bread and chai tea, and a whiff of fresh mint. Seamless and powerful, particularly on the finish.
Drink now through 2030.
95 points
