Critical Acclaim

RP91+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2005

"The 2004 Shiraz 11th Hour is a blend of fruit from a 60-year-old Greenock vineyard (60%) and a 90-year-old vineyard in Nuriootpa (40%). It was aged 18 months in used French oak. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of peppery black currants, roasted meats, new saddle leather, and earth. This opulent, rich, full-throttle wine exhibits a smooth, long finish with a stunning texture as well as richness. Consume it over the next 10–12 years." (91–93 pts.)

Australia

When casual wine drinkers think of Australian wine, they probably think of the critter-laden labels of Yellow Tail and The Little Penguin, among others. And while large wine companies dominate the Australian list, there are also a great number of smaller producers creating highly-rated, award-winning wines.

The majority of Australian wine is produced in South Australia, with most of that (those “critter wines”) carrying a South Eastern Australia appellation. Subregions such as Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale are home to smaller producers and higher quality wines. Victoria and New South Wales are also significant regions, and wines from Western Australia are reaching America in increasing numbers.

Though Shiraz is the grape most associated with Australia, they’ve also had great success with Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and Grenache.
