Critical Acclaim

RP90 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 1st Dec 2006

"From the cool climate Yarra Valley, the 2004 Shiraz Tribal Elder spent over two years in French oak. This complex, European-styled offering is not totally dissimilar from a top-notch Rhone Valley St.-Joseph or Crozes-Hermitage. It exhibits aromas of crushed rocks, mint, damp earth, black cherries, and berries. Medium to full-bodied with good acidity as well as abundant flavor, depth, and intensity, it is a complex, deep Shiraz to consume over the next decade." (90 pts.)

RP92 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 1st Oct 2007

"The 2004 Tribal Elder Shiraz was produced from tiny yields of 1 ton per acre. It was aged for 26 months in 2 year old French oak. Dark ruby-colored, the wine has a complex bouquet of cedar, pepper, violets, grilled bacon, and blueberry with a hint of chocolate in the background. This is followed by an elegant, balanced, northern Rhone-like Shiraz with ample ripe fruit, silky tannins, and lively acidity in a harmonious package. It will evolve for 6–8 years and drink well through 2024." (92 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.
