It’s only May, but I’m calling it – this Longhop Shiraz 2019 is the most impressive $20 South Australian Shiraz you’ll buy this year. It’s such a substantial red. Thick and grainy, with a real black fruit profile, the palate is so deep and dark and long. It gets a bit heavy on the finish, but that just adds to the intensity. $20? There are $50 reds with less intensity than this. It’s a bit rough and tumble on the finish, but that just adds to the charm. Bargain. I was almost at 93 on the score too. Best drinking: now to ten years plus.

How bloody good is Dom Torzi? National treasure. Also, best black olives in the business. And the tapenade is off the charts. This is lush stuff. True neck oil. Easy drinking, dark fruited, ripe, sweet, spicy, soft and pillowy. A kind of rustic charm and so damn honest. Booze soaked berries and dark chocolate blitzed for your pleasure. Straight up delicious. It’s big and brassy and clumsy and cuddly. It’s so darn yum!

Bold. So bold. Black fruit, leather, dark chocolate. cedar and dried flowers. Full-bodied, loads of dark chocolate, boiled fruitcake and blackberry, some grainy tannin, a little warmth, and an inky finish of good length, a bit of the old dragon’s breath flaying off some of its charm. Not exactly subtle, but honest and hearty.
