WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "Only made in select years (2007 and 2003 thus far), Ode to Lorraine is a wine made in homage to Al and Cameron’s mum, who Read More...
remains the “uberboss” of the operation. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Shiraz and 8% Merlot, the 2008 Ode to Lorraine spent 18 months in new and seasoned French and American hogsheads. Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives intense blueberry, black currant and spice box aromas with hints of prunes, licorice and some earth. Rich and full-bodied with medium to firm grainy tannins and plenty of enlivening acid, it finishes long with layers of mulberry and spice flavors. Approachable now, it should soften more in a year or so and drink best from 2012 to 2020+."

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "The 2008 Neil Ashmead GTS is a Shiraz cuvee from the riper 2008 vintage. Purple-colored, it has an alluring bouquet of damp earth, lavender, pepper, bacon, Read More...
and blueberry. Full-bodied on the palate, it has a glossy texture, layered flavors bordering on opulent, incipient complexity, plenty of depth and richness, and a long, fruit-filled finish. It can be enjoyed now but will drink well for a decade."

This is the first vintage of this wine produced and a first in the US as well. The Ashmeads decided to dedicate a special estate Shiraz to the memory of their beloved father Neil Ashmead. Early on Neil conducted the family business on the road and had an affection for fast cars as well. Hence the name “Grand Tourer Shiraz” was given to the wine. It’s seamless from start to finish and very apparent that a good deal of love and hard work went into producing it. We are very grateful to offer this special wine to our Hi-Time Customers.

AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION 98 POINTS - "Vivid, deep purple-crimson; this is a blue-blood aristocratic Shiraz, certain in its supreme power, length and balance, and not going out to prove anything. If anyone doubts its quality now, the scales will fall from their eyes over the decades ahead, as it will be recognised by all and sundry as one of the greatest Mount Edelstones. Screwcap. 14.5% alc.

STEPHEN TANZER INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 94 POINTS - "Saturated ruby. Wild, intensely aromatic bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, incense, smoky Indian spices and vanilla, with a seductive floral quality emerging with aeration. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors, a touch of anise and building spiciness.

used French oak. The vivid colour of the wine attests to its moderate alcohol, as does the joyful display of red and black fruits; the tannins are supple, the oak subtle but evident. Fantastic value."

Dean Hewitson founded his winery after working and traveling extensively in the world of wine. He came to the realization that South Australia's strength lays in its very old vineyards, many of them dry-grown and planted in the 19th Century! As a result, he bought property among some of the oldest vineyards in the world in an area synonymous with Australian Shiraz, the Barossa Valley. Discovering the beauty within these venerable old vines to express their distinctive character is the essence of Hewitson.

Hewitson began producing the Ned & Henry bottling after a friend challenged him to produce a traditional, full-bodied Barossa Valley Shiraz-based wine, which could be drunk young with lunch or dinner. Hewitson agreed to make the wine, but would not stray from his fundamental philosophy of making wine with balance, fine grained tannins and a clear expression of fruit. Hewitson rose to the challenge and the result is a delicious, silky wine, which can be enjoyed now or over the next 5 years.

Smoky cassis and blueberry liqueur flavors are sharpened by zesty acidity and given depth by notes of licorice and dark chocolate.

Fifty-nine percent of this fruit was grown in Barossa Valley and the rest in Eden Valley." -- Josh Raynolds

is one of the richest and most opulent vintages of The Signature in the 41 years since the first was made.

WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "Blended of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Shiraz, the deep garnet-purple colored 2012 The Signature (Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz) is a benchmark example of this classic South Australia blend. Giving scents of ripe black cherries, blackberries and cassis with underlying cloves, vanilla and menthol hints, it fills the mouth with ripe, seductive but never heavy fruit. Medium-bodied and well framed with firm grainy tannins and balanced freshness, it finishes long and youthfully taut. Always a great value Aussie icon, this vintage is right up there with the best and is certainly one for the cellars of Aussie wine lovers!"

JAMES SUCKLING 95 POINTS - "A balanced, complete red with currant, spice, meat and berry character. Full body with polished tannins and a long, long finish. Very structured and layered. Turns spicy and flavorful. This is a great wine. Try in 2018."

In April, Jane Ferrari of Yalumba visited Hi-Time and we sampled the astounding 2012 "Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz blend from the Barossa Valley. This sneak peek knocked our socks off so we ordered big and awaited its arrival. Well, the wait is over and the wine is here! The reviews from the wine press have also come in with a trio of critics awarding scores of at least 95 Points. They used words to describe this wine such as elegant, seductive and having overall perfect balance. This delicious red blend is an Aussie Icon whose hallmark is incredible balance and purity of fruit.

The Smith family has been making wine at Yalumba for over 165 years and has produced The Signature for more than 5 decades. Their "Signature" wine is only produced in very good years and 2012 was an exceptional year. It is deep and complex, displaying the silky texture that is the calling card of Yalumba’s red wines. The polished tannins of this remarkable wine make this one which can be enjoyed now, but also one which can be aged for several years. Enjoy!

talking Australia. And the Yalumba ‘Hand Picked’ Shiraz/Viognier 2012 is no exception. This is a wine with limited availability so we did our best to grab as much as we could from the distributor. As is the tradition in the Côte-Rôtie (and the rules of the appellation), the Syrah (or, in Australian verbiage, Shiraz) is co-fermented with a smaller percentage of the white varietal, Viognier. Yalumba’s Hand Picked Shiraz/Viognier undergoes that same winemaking process of co-fermentation. The Shiraz, along with a small amount of Viognier, are actually crushed and fermented together (what harmony!). The addition of the Viognier intensifies the color, adds an extra dimension and a wonderful fragrance to the bouquet. It also brings softness to that rich and powerful Barossa Shiraz. It’s as if the Shiraz underwent training in etiquette to tone down its demeanor! The result is a wine of elegance, a term not typically associated with Barossa Shiraz! Inside the bottle, the wine has the full and alluring flavors of Barossa along with a good level of acidity to make it lively. Enjoy!

that dance through the vigorous finish. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Drink now through 2019. 1,000 cases imported." –HS

Australia's roots in Rhone grapes go back to the founding of the Barossa Valley in the 1840's and 50's. There are Shiraz/Syrah vines in Barossa that are over 150 years old alongside similar pockets of old-vine Grenache and Mourvedre. A "Chateauneuf-style" blend is a natural for Australia, but in the past, these wines were usually bottled by varietal. Yalumba has been at it longer than most (163 years!), but this is the first release for "The Strapper" blend. We had to wonder what took them so long! The pretty red fruit of the Grenache adds brightness and elegance to some powerful, spicy notes from the Mourvedre (aka, "Mataro.") This wine is serious and responds nicely to a bit of air-time, moving from brooding black fruit to high-tone pomegranate, rose petals, and kirsch. There were only about 300cs for the US market-it will go fast.

sweetness with air, picking up a suave floral quality. Lively, appealingly pinot-like grenache with very good finishing lift and smooth, harmonious tannins arriving late." Josh Reynolds

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston (in the Barossa Valley, South Australia) seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch “Yalumba” – aboriginal for “all the land around”. Five generations and 160 years later, Yalumba, Australia’s oldest family-owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over. Often described as one of Australia’s unsung heroes, Grenache is naturally lighter in color than Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon but continually provides wonderful big fruit flavors. Yalumba is extremely fortunate to have some of the oldest Grenache vines in the Barossa, with fruit for this wine being sourced from vines planted in 1898!

Spiced red berries, mixed red fruits, cedar, mint and incense make for a pleasant nosing, as crimson florals and red wine candle join the fray. Grenache can have such a sexy, inviting perfume and this old vine beauty has lost none of her charms over the years. The palate smartly echoes the nose: mainly red fruits (raspberries, cherries, redcurrant), brown spices, subtle earthiness are girded by hints of herbals and mint, with a touch of briar. Balanced acidity and supple tannins lead to a fruit-filled, nicely spiced finish. Easy-drinking, sensous, satisfying.
