Wine Companion 2017 94 pts - 100% shiraz from Marananga (planted 1899) and Nuriootpa (planted 1965), hand-picked, 'given time on skins', 15 months in French oak (25% new). There is a moment of calm before the tempest of black fruits and powerful, dry tannins bursts over every corner of the mouth. It is exceedingly difficult to point the wine, not because of any ambiguity in its black flavours and rock of ages structure, simply its refusal to bow to the winds of change blowing across the Barossa Valley.
Wine Advocate 91pts - Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz The Bogan gives a savory nose of beef drippings, Marmite and chargrill with a solid core of black berries and blackcurrants plus a peppery waft. Very big, rich and voluptuously fruit on the full-bodied palate, it delivers a lot of savory fruit and chewy tannins with great length.
Wine Spectator 89 pts - Firm, delivering cedar and roasted herb flavors, this has currant and dried berry notes mingling with fresh clay accents and taut tannins on the finish. Hints of sage and rosemary provide an aromatic lift.
