Shirvington-Estate-Cabernet Sauvignon-2005-750mL

Producer: Shirvington
SKU: 498
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

Owners Paul and Lynn Shirvington have replaced winemakers Sarah and Sparky Marquis with Kim Johnston, who appears to be following in the same footsteps, producing bigger than life, bold, rich, but beautifully linear and precise wines. Both of these cuvees are barrel-fermented and aged in 75-85% new oak, primarily American. The vines are young, which makes the quality even more remarkable.

95/100
The Wine Advocate
A gorgeous effort, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon screams blueberries, creme de cassis, licorice, cedar, and spice box. The oak component can not stand up to the lavish, extravagant amounts of fruit and glycerin. This intense, full-bodied, surprisingly pure and elegant Cabernet should last at least a decade.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167



89/100
Wine Spectator
Bright and lively, this pulses with blueberry and currant fruit that's nicely framed with refined tannins and enough acidity to keep it fresh.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Jun 30 2007

d'Arenberg-The Dead Arm-Shiraz-2003-750mL

The 2003 season was characterised by a very low winter rainfall which signalled the vine to minimize potential crop load. The ripening period was warm producing a crop load of small berries and very pure, ripe fruit characters. Even with a smaller than normal crop load many batches showed wonderful fruit characters due to an excellent skin to pulp ratios and this is evident in the final wine. This year in particular selected parcels of fruit deemed worthy of the Dead Arm label were down 50% in volume.
