WA 95-98 The 2006 The Wine Shiraz is nicknamed “the show pony” by Ringland. It offers a similar aromatic profile and satiny, succulent fruit but comes off as a bit more forward and elegant on the palate. It conceals enough fine-grained tannin to support 6-8 years of additional cellaring. JM Dec 2009.
WA 92 The 2008 Hickinbotham Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has a very deep garnet-purple color and intense notes of black currant juice, Provence herbs, kirsch, chocolate, espresso, pencil shavings and iron ore. Full-bodied, very crisp and rich with a high level of fine tannins, it has a long coffee laced finish. Drink it 2012 to 2018. LPB Dec 2010.
Jeremy Oliver 95 points, Wine Specatator 93 points, WA 90. WA 90 The wine exhibits a lovely dark ruby color along with a big, sweet kiss of black cherry liqueur intermixed with hints of tobacco leaves and resiny pine scents. Aromatic, smooth, velvety textured, and sexy, this is a full-bodied, delicious Grenache to drink over the next 7-8 years. RPJ Oct 2006.
James Halliday 96 points. "Light to medium purple-crimson, only marginally deeper than the '11; a more conventional cool-grown shiraz, but of the highest quality; spice, pepper, licorice, plum and cherry fruit fill the mouth, the flavours constantly changing places with each other, both tannins and oak in their due place." JH 96 This shiraz fruit comes from an original By Farr site, planted in 1994 in black cracking clay soil, which dries very quickly. This is the first of the shiraz vineyards to be picked and, being the warmer site, fits perfectly into the Farr Rising line-up. Farr Rising shiraz shows how refinement and fruit flavour can...
WA 97 The 2005 Shiraz “Attunga 1865” is sourced from ungrafted vines planted in the Clare Valley in 1865. It spent 25 months in 100% new French oak hogsheads and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Opaque purple/black, it reveals an ethereal bouquet of crushed rocks, acacia flowers, espresso, mocha, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a powerful, intense, yet elegant wine with a very long, seamless finish. This beautifully balanced effort will excite tasters over the next 25 years. Kilikanoon’s winemaker is the talented Kevin Mitchell. The house specialty is Shiraz but Mitchell does equally well with Riesling, Cabernet...
WA 97 The 2006 R Shiraz, aged for 24 months in new French oak, shows off legs that ooze slowly down the glass. A brooding bouquet of toasty oak, smoke, truffle, violets, mocha, blackberry, and blueberry pie are high-class. This is followed by a dense, powerful, full-bodied Shiraz with tons of spicy black and blue fruit flavor, impeccable balance, and a 60-second finish. Cellar it for 6-8 years and drink this hedonistic effort from 2015 to 2035. JM Feb 2009.
"A fabulous offering is the 2002 Shiraz Black Guts. Made from 36-year-old vines cropped at 1-2 tons of fruit per acre, it boasts an inky/purple color followed by a sumptuous nose of blueberries, blackberries, cold steel, acacia flowers, and subtle new oak. Layers of fruit and purity cascade over the palate of this long, rich, full-bodied, voluptuously textured, impeccably balanced Shiraz. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020+." RPJ 96/100 October 2005
WS 94. WA 94. Deep purple colored, the 2009 “Coach House Block” Shiraz offers a vibrant, youthful nose of ripe black cherries, crushed blueberries and red currants over aromas of allspice, cloves, cinnamon stick and toast. Very full bodied, ripe and decadently fruited in the mouth, the richness is well structured with a medium to firm level of rounded tannins and crisp acidity. The finish is very long on this voluptuous stunner. Though tempting to drink now, it should be at its best 2013 to 2021+. LPB Feb 2012.

James Halliday 96 points, Bob Campbell MW 95 points. “Excellent depth to the colour heralds a wine replete with an abundance of purple and black fruits seamlessly woven together on the medium to full-bodied palate; oak and tannins provide the framework for a wine with a very long life ahead. ” James Halliday Wine Companion, 2015
