'Deep garnet-black in color, the 2004 Amon-Ra exudes lovely dark fruit, spice box and anise notes over kirsch, creme de cassis and mincemeat, plus a savory and meaty whiff. Full-bodied, it is generous and rich in the mouth with bright acid and a medium-firm level of fine-grained tannins. It finishes long and fine. Drink it now until 2022+. .'

'A supremely ripe and confiture-like modern Barossa shiraz whose ethereal, musky and briary aromas of blackcurrant, dark Swiss chocolate, dark olives, stewed plums, nutmeg and cinnamon are backed by smoky nuances of mocha/vanilla oak. Deeply ripened and slightly meaty, its substantial and luxuriant palate of sumptuous fruit is framed by firm but silky-smooth tannins, finishing long, savoury and slightly mineral.'

'The new face of Barossan shiraz. It was made with extended skin contact, was cold fermented, had quite a bit of lees stirring and was then matured in French oak. All this seems to have heightened the aroma and softened the texture, without adding much in the way of overt oak flavours. It also seems to have kept the fruit exceptionally fresh in its profile. Full of firm but highly orchestrated, chocolatey, olive-like tannin, with inky fruit on tar on fresh full-summer plums. Exceptional mouthfeel and exquisite length, with a perfect pitch of flavour and feel and strength. Magnificent. In the glass, it rose even higher.'

Buying At Auction?

Your Questions, Answered

What do you need from me to get started?

We will need you to confirm that you are over 18 (for obvious reasons!) and to open an account by registering on the site. This will include provision of credit card details for any eventual purchases. You will also need to sign that you have read the terms and conditions.

How many wines are in each Lot?

You will see the quantity (number of bottles) stated above the price. Please note that the bid-price is per bottle so you will need to multiply the price by the number of bottles in the lot to calculate the total price of the lot.

Can I cancel my bid if I change my mind?

All bids are final - please think before you confirm your bid.

How much is the Buyers' Commission?

We have an extremely competitive buyers' commission of 16.5% (GST inclusive). This will be added to the final winning price of your Lot at the end of the auction.

What are your freight charges?

Please see our Delivery Policy for full details relating to freight.

Is there a Guarantee on my wine?

Under Australian law, consumer guarantees do not apply to goods purchased at auction - all such purchases are at the risk of the Buyer. We will always provide as much detail as we can as to the visual condition and provenance of each Lot, however this is done so as a guide rather than as a guarantee.
