94-97/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2003 Shiraz Savitar is a prodigious offering. Made from 30- to 50-year-old Shiraz vines in the Willunga district of McLaren Vale, it was aged 18 months in 100% new French barrels and small foudres. This elegant Shiraz boasts an opaque purple color along with sumptuous blueberry, blackberry, and cassis notes intermixed with touches of white flowers, licorice, camphor, and graphite. A compellingly textured, rich, super-endowed red, it combines power with finesse.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #155



95/100
Wine Companion
Full-bodied but supple and long in the mouth; spice, dark chocolate and blackberry; fine tannins.

17.5/20
Jancis Robinson
This is a selection from the Lopresti vineyard named after a mythical monster of which only about a quarter the quantity of GAM is made. They are looking for tighter tannins (yikes!), more minerality and restraint. This a wine for the serious long term. Lower yields and all new oak. Intense essence of Shiraz. Fresh lots of fruit with tobacco notes. Chewy with black cherry notes. Liquorice and masses of alcohol but well balanced.
