My daughter, Anne's, Nov. 2012 wedding shower weekend. No great shakes, but no complaints from those who tasted/sipped. So they must have liked it, hence the rating. Personally, I did not taste.

i just had this 2008 wine, which is a new release from this exciting new region. It's from a cool climate area and very stylish with a strong, dark fruited nose and a a palate loaded with flavour. The tannins are quite silky and the wine will dveelop nicely with bottle age. More sophisticated than most Aussie Shiraz, I just loved it. Being under screw cap it opened out for two days and is a great buy at the price.

Sometimes Barossa Shiraz can be over the top: too big and after one glass I have had enough. This one though is much more elegant in style although it has all the good Barossa things: mocha, dark cheery etc. on the nose. It's a very young wine that will develop over the next 5-7 years, but wonderfully balanced and great drinking right now (show me a great old wine that was not a great young wine).

THE 2008 VINTAGE WINES FROM THIS PRODUCER ARE REALLY HIGH CLASS. THIS ONE JUST GOT 89 POINTS IN WINE SPECTATOR. TASING IT I CAN SEE WHY, IT HAS A LOVELY SPICY NOSE AND A TERRIFIC JUICY PALATE THAT MAKES ME THINK ABOUT STEAK. MORE SAVOURY IN STYLE AND MEDIUM BODIED IN WEIGHT THAN SOME OTHER mCLAREN VALE WINES i HAVE HAD IN THE PAST

Great wine from an emerging region. Peppery, with wonderful silky tannins. May need bottle development but who cares! Took two days to open out and enjoyed every drop.

I refer to Nine Stones as "MY Secret" wine. It's inexpensive but holds its own against some $30 bottles of Shirazs I've purchased. Produced by the Evans Wine Company, Nine Stones is an Australian Shiraz from the Barroossa Valley in the South, and the 2005 and 2007 vintages drink like "liquid gold" - smooth, full-bodied, flavorful with just the right amount of a delicate fruity sweetness. It's always consistent and is drinkable with meals or just for sipping sitting around the fire place reading or listening to music. It goes well with a pork roast, chicken served with a demi-glase red wine reduction sauce, and beef or game dishes. It's marvelous when paired with a venison and rabbiit tart. It has a screw top, so if you have wine snobs over for diinner, decant it before hand and they'll think you're serving them a wine more than twice its retail price of $12.99 - a real bargain for the money! Bon Appétit! January 2010

Bright, vibrant and jazzy with raspberry, blackberry and dusky spice aromas and flavors that linger on the lively finish. Drink now through 2012. 5,000 cases imported. HS


Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Bright youthful purples and dark red. Plums & raspberries with peppery, spicy overtones overlaid with subtle oak character. Very sweet fruit with fine grained tannins persistent, which is a hallmark of this vineyard; excellent fleshy middle palate and a long satisfying dry finish.
