WA 92 The 2006 Bordeaux varietals begin with the 2006 Merlot Brookman Vineyard. Velvety textured and approachable now, it will nevertheless evolve for 5-7 years and drink well through 2020. JM Feb 2009.
WA 95 "The exceptionally fragrant, dark purple 2003 Syrah Moritz Vineyard boasts an extraordinary perfume of acacia flowers, blackberries, cassis, roasted meats, and subtle wood. With fabulous concentration, an expansive, savory texture, well-integrated acidity, alcohol, and wood, and a remarkable finish with plenty of sweet tannin, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years. " Wine Advocate Oct 2005
Originally released to investors at 250sgd. James Halliday 97 points. Tasting note: Light, clear crimson; given the medium-bodied weight of the wine, the intensity and length of the wine is prodigious; unlike the '08, red fruits are the main theme, rather than black, on the aromatic bouquet and through the palate. Made from very old vines, and comes with a 20-year cellaring guarantee; French oak and fine tannins complete the story of its ultra-limited production. (05-Sep-2011) [James Halliday]
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...
~ Buy Six and Pay $79 net ~ WA 95 "The 2006 M Shiraz was aged in 100% new French oak. It has a complex aromatic array of pain grille, scorched earth, floral notes, truffle, espresso, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Opulent on the palate, it has layers of savoury fruit, spice notes, and enough structure to improve for 5-7 years. It will have a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2028. JM Feb 2009
WA 95. The outstanding 2004 Shiraz Jimmy Section (100% Shiraz aged in French oak, of which one-third was new) exhibits a big, sweet nose of blackberries, licorice, pepper, and flowers. It’s a stacked and packed, opulent, moderately tannic effort with superb density and richness as well as a multidimensional mouthfeel and persistent finish. It should age beautifully for 10-15 years. RPJ Oct 2005.

WA 97 The 2006 Black Guts Shiraz competes favorably with its predecessors. The wine spent 30 months in 10% new American oak, 25% new French oak, and 65% old French barrels. Purple in color, it displays scents of cedar, lavender, incense, rosemary, smoked meat, and blueberry. Plush on the palate with a sense of elegance, this incredibly intense, savory, impeccably balanced Shiraz has layers of flavor, and is amazingly light on its feet. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. Christian Canute’s signature style of winemaking usually pays off with distinctive wines unlike anything else coming out of Barossa Valley.
WA 94 Coming from 45 and 65 year old Shiraz vines, 2007 Black Guts Shiraz has intense notes of warm blackberry, anise, kirsch and black olives over nuances of green peppercorns, underbrush and cardamom. Full bodied but not to the extreme, the palate is rich and well fleshed with a solid backbone of very crisp acid and a medium level of very fine tannins. This is quite an elegant style with great balance and persistence. Approachable now, it should cellar to 2020+. LPB Dec 2010.
WS 95. "Rich and supple, brimming with complex coffee, tobacco and dusky spice-accented ripe blueberry, dark plum and sloe flavors, hinting at juniper and bay leaf on the finish. Long and generous, this has miles to go, tempting as it is to drink now. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases made." Wine Spectator. Sourced from a vineyard on Roennfeldt Road in the Barossa Valley. An exceptional example of regional and varietal definition which contributes to the complexity and personality of the finished wine.
