2013 Vintage 93 Points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (RobertParker.com) 

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Alte Reben Shiraz has a gorgeous nose of crushed black cherries and mulberries with underlying violets, chocolate box and baking spice hints. The full-bodied palate has wonderful opulence and expression yet great finesse and harmony with silky tannins and a lively backbone finishing with great purity. 

2014 Vintage 94+ Points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (RobertParker.com) 
Coming from a 117-year-old vineyard in the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa Valley, the 2014 Alte Reben Shiraz offers a deep garnet-purple color. It opens on the nose with lovely potpourri, dusty earth, tar and red currants with a touch of garrigue. The palate contributes great freshness, with chewy tannins with savory/meaty characters offset by spicy richness and finishing with an herbal lift. 

2015 Vintage 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.

Taste & Aroma


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.
