The revolution in Australian Shiraz (not to mention Shiraz blends) has been well underway for several years now. Vibrant yet concentrated examples are becoming easier to find in the United States like these stellar examples from John Duval and Yeringberg.

92 pts    John Duval Shiraz Barossa Entity 2012
Fresh and vital, with expressive flavors of dark plum and spice on an open texture, coming together with intensity and grace on the finish against a light blanket of tannins. Drink now through 2022.

92 pts    Yeringberg Shiraz Yarra Valley 2012
Fresh and vibrant, open-textured and relatively light on its feet, with sweet spice and black pepper notes that weave through the plum and fresh currant fruit, echoing on the elegant finish. Drink now through 2022.

91 pts    John Duval Plexus Red Barossa Valley 2012
Dark and spicy, with an earthy, meaty cast to the plum and black  currant fruit. Fine tannins maintain a mild grip as the finish lingers  with unexpected but welcome transparency. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2016 through 2020.
