94/100
The Wine Advocate
The blockbuster 2004 Shiraz Springflat's inky/purple color is followed by a wine that pushes concentration to the limit. Made from tiny yields of 1.5 to 1.8 tons of fruit per acre, aged in 50% new and 50% 1 and 2 year old oak (half American and half French) barrels, it is a huge, rich, backward Shiraz that still assaults the palate and olfactory senses. Forget this big, structured, intense 2004 for 2-3 years and drink it over the following 15 or more.

Wine Spectator
Bright and juicy. A different profile from most Aussie Shiraz, offering ripe red cherry and pomegranate flavors against refreshing acidity and nicely sublimated tannins.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Feb 28 2007



92/100
Wine Companion
Deep purple-red; rich and luscious; very ripe fruit with blackberry confit flavours; soft tannins, and it's easy to see why it has such appeal in the US. This is not to denigrate its appeal in Australia, either.

Shirvington Estate Shiraz 2003 750mL

This wine will give you all the flavours and nuances you are looking for in a McLaren Vale Shiraz. It has a lifted intense nose with chocolate, licorice, cherries and spice characters. The palate is mouth watering with layers of complexity and length. The fruit flavours are powerful, yet velvety and seamless. It is a delight to drink.

Torbreck The Struie Shiraz 2004 750mL

When poured, the density and depth of the 2004 Struie is immediately apparent; completely black/purple with an opulent magenta tinge. A floral hit of violets makes way for the more brooding aromas of tar, chocolate, licorice and coffee with a subtle hint of cinnamon and spice.

 

The rich, luscious palate of great concentration envelopes the mouth and silky smooth tannins compliment and complete this elegant blend.

 

Food Matching:

Barbecue, ribs, spicy sausages and smoked brisket.

Branson Coach House Coach House Block Shiraz 2004 750mL

A multi dimensional bouquet of roasted meats, mineral, cola, tar and blackberry. Give this one time to open up, this monster is built for the long haul! The palate starts out thick and coating; immediately powerful and explosive, you are then thrown a huge chunk of fruit while the acid and tannin roll around trying to tame it. The wine shows great oak handling and remains succulent, complete and perfectly balanced.
