Dense purple colour, the nose displays notes of blackberry, cherry, nutmeg and intense spice. The wine is voluptuous and yet seamlessly elegant. Supple tannins complement richness and viscosity. It is slightly more fruit driven than the 2004 Amon-Ra. Whereas the 2004 displayed purity and elegance at release, the 2005 will require a little more time to settle down in bottle. The tannin structure and sheer fruit weight of the wine will enable long-term cellaring from 12-18 years. 

Professional Reviews

98/100
The Wine Advocate
The profound 2005 Shiraz Amon Ra is fashioned from a dry grown, 100- to 110 year-old vineyard, and spends 14 months in a combination of 100% new French and American barrels as well as 300-liter hogsheads. A saturated purple color is followed by scents of creme de cassis, incense, licorice, black raspberries, graphite, and sweet wood. It unfolds beautifully on the palate to reveal terrific richness, full-bodied power, great definition, and lovely elegance. This exquisite Shiraz is still young, but it possesses a degree of accessibility. It is a superb example of cutting edge winemaking being utilized on ancient Shiraz vines in the Barossa.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167



93/100
Wine Companion
Rich and voluptuous wine, with lots of soft mocha/vanilla influence on layers of soft, black fruits.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2006



91/100
Wine Spectator
Ripe and distinctive, a generous mouthful of peppery blackberry, wild raspberry, mossy, mushroomy flavors all in wild profusion. It all lasts beautifully on the finish. An exciting wine with real personality.
