Critical Acclaim

SP91 Wine Spectator Apr 30, 2005

"Firm, tightly packed with blueberry, plum and a touch of tart spice as the flavors linger on the extended, slightly lifted finish. Has tremendous intensity and depth without excessive weight. Best from 2008 through 2012." (91 pts.)

RP95 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2005

"The exotic, full-throttle, high velocity, mouth-staining, unctuously textured, dense ruby/purple-hued 2003 Grenache Old Vine Blewitt Springs is classic southern Australian Grenache. Pushed to the limit, but not over the top, it is a spectacular wine to drink over the next 5–7 years." (95 pts.)

Australia

When casual wine drinkers think of Australian wine, they probably think of the critter-laden labels of Yellow Tail and The Little Penguin, among others. And while large wine companies dominate the Australian list, there are also a great number of smaller producers creating highly-rated, award-winning wines.

The majority of Australian wine is produced in South Australia, with most of that (those “critter wines”) carrying a South Eastern Australia appellation. Subregions such as Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale are home to smaller producers and higher quality wines. Victoria and New South Wales are also significant regions, and wines from Western Australia are reaching America in increasing numbers.

Though Shiraz is the grape most associated with Australia, they’ve also had great success with Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and Grenache.
