2012 Mystery 98 Point Eden Valley Old Vine Shiraz

Staggering, just staggering. Ancient vine, single-vineyard Shiraz from the Eden Valley that normally retails for $100 a bottle, with 98 points from James Suckling, and yet, you can have it for just $55 a bottle. A monumental deal.

DESCRIPTION
  • Step right up to a Mystery Deal that we've been trying to lock down for years. We've featured a younger vintage of this very same wine in this past, and you know what, we love this one just as much as last time (maybe even a touch more).

    It's EXACTLY what people want when thinking of the big guns of Barossa. Powerful, complex and radiating length, with pepper, plum, liquorice and tar, rose and blueberry compote. If the Barossa Valley had an autograph to send to fans across the world, this wine could be it (just take a look at the incredibly long list of awards and reviews that the wine has achieved from overseas).

    Sourced from one of the best vintages in living memory, 2012, and taken from one of the Eden Valley's most prominent centurion vineyards, you will be taken onto a generation long adventure with this Shiraz, as it builds and develops over time. 

    The producer of this monolithic Shiraz is very much a well known one, with a lot of sway in the industry and a very strong presence both here and overseas (where they represent our wine industry with pride). In fact, you could ask almost anyone with a passing interest in wine, and they will be recognise this brand in a heartbeat. On top of that, we would guarantee that if you were to check-out any wine retailer across Australia, then this wine, or others in their lineup of star-studded releases will be featured somewhere in the shop.

    With 98 points from leading international wine critic James Suckling, and an asking price of $100 a bottle, its a wine from the absolute upper echelon of Barossa greats, and yet, as one of My Wine Guy's Mystery Wine Deals, you can have this for a staggering 50% off the cellar-door ticketed price. 

    Not bad for a wine that will outlive generations and has an accolade list as long as your arm.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Sourced from an ancient, single-vineyard somewhere in the Barossa (we can't give too much detail away), this is quality wine-making at its best. 100+ year old vines. Hand-picked. Natural yeast fermentation. Basket-pressed fruit. Two and a half-years oak ageing in half new and half one-year-old oak and all made by a celebrated winemaker.

  • REVIEWS

    'Immensely complex, dark, brooding character... Plums and black fruits... liquorice and tar. The aromatic depth is striking. An incredibly deep arc of flavor... muscular and long... smoldering. Old-vine presence at its best.'
    98 Points - James Suckling


    'From a single vineyard... 100 years old... hand-picked. Intensity of the black fruits...  tannins already in balance.'

    95 Points - James Halliday


    'This is an expensive wine with a rather weighty name as well, so you might wonder whether it can live up to its advance billing.  In terms of sheer assertiveness of flavor, one could hardly ask for more'
    Platinum Award - San Diego International Wine Competition


    'A cooler expression of Shiraz... a hint of dark chocolate and mocha; very long to the finish. Almost Rhône-like'  Pierre Mansour
    'Compact, muscular structure supported by good mid-palate fruit. Serious if youthful, promises a good life ahead; powerful.'
    Brett Crittenhen
    'Blackberry fruit tinged with pepper and youthful, grippy tannins underpinned by a bittersweet chocolatey note with noticeable power. Made in a modern Rhône-ish vein.' Anthony Rose
    95 Points - Decanter Magazine


    'One sexy beast of a wine, with its high toned mix of red and black berries complimented by vibrant pepper and leaf notes. Supple tannins and singing acidity help extend the finish and keep the flavors balanced. '
    95 Points - Rich Cook


    'Profoundly scented of warm blackberries, cassis and mulberries with an undercurrent of vanilla, toast, chocolate and cedar.'
    Lisa Perotti-Brown
