96 Points - James Halliday
Fruit off the estate's Marananga vineyard planted in 1899. The wine is matured in 35% new French oak and aged 16 months. It's full-bodied, bold and rich with densely packed tannins and all manner of dark fruit, spice and gravelly/ironstone notes. Retains purity, even a brightness.

95 Points - Joe Czerwinski (RobertParker.com)
Previously reviewed from barrel in Issue 227, the 2015 Alte Reben Shiraz is now in bottle and looks fantastic. Pencil shavings, raspberries and thyme blossoms all appear on the nose, while the full-bodied palate delivers spicy complexity, ripe, creamy-textured tannins and terrific length. From a vineyard in Marananga planted in 1899, this is intense, supple and just downright great juice.

95 Points - James Suckling
An old-vine bottling from 1899 plantings. It delivers strong blackberries, mulberries, red plums, spiced earthy notes and crushed flowers. Ethereal. This has a soulful and profound appeal on the palate with a sleeve of dark, spice-dusted blackberry and blood-plum flavors. The power is effortless here. Drink or hold.

Producer

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
