95/100
The Wine Advocate
The extraordinary 2003 Shiraz Lily's Garden exhibits an inky ruby/purple hue to the rim in addition to a stunning aromatic display of blackberries, cassis liqueur, licorice, smoky oak, sweet chocolate, and espresso roast. A fabulously concentrated, multidimensional, layered wine with power, elegance, and a seamless personality, it can be drunk young or cellared for a decade or more.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161



95/100
Wine Companion
Potent but smooth, velvety black fruits and dark chocolate; excellent tannins and length.
, James Halliday Issue: Dec 2004



93/100
Wine Spectator
Raw, powerful and muscular, with vivid, sharply etched blackberry, black cherry and peppery spice aromas and flavors, persisting impressively on the finish, veering toward tart. Needs time to settle into itself.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Mar 31 2005

Two Hands-Deer in Headlights-Shiraz-2003-3L

2003 vintage:

Winter started with heavy rains, which tapered off resulting in below average rainfalls and a successful budburst in early spring. Flowering and set occurred in November, promoting uniform berry development and bunch numbers were on average for the season. Veraison for Shiraz and Cabernet started in late January with the older vines producing lighter crops. The height of summer saw 65mm of rainfall in the last week of February requiring swift viticultural practices to prevent the onset of disease and fungus. Our 2003 Barossa Shiraz displayed great colour and depth of flavour. Yields overall were below the long-term average but the grapes were of good quality and the resultant wines display terrific potential.

 

Wine description:

Bright purple plum colour. Glossy red fruits and spiced plum cake on the nose with a hint of vanilla spice. The palate shows swathes of rich generous fruit, ripe blackberry intermingled with soft cedary spice. A fine coating of gentle tannins washes over the palate with a long and persistent finish to end.

Torbreck-The Steading-Grenache Shiraz Mataro-2002-750mL

The melding of the three traditional Barossa varieties creates a tremendously complex and rewarding wine.

 

The Grenache and Mataro are from old bush vines that are pruned in the traditional ‘goblet’ style to a limited number of buds, reducing yields and promoting flavour and colour concentration. Only the free run component of the Shiraz is used in the blend to allow the Grenache identity to shine through.
