Basket Case Barossa Valley Shiraz 2013
"Good hue; there's plenty happening on the medium to full-bodied palate, which has some dark
chocolate nuances more commonly found in McLaren Vale, but give the wine a
certain gravitas; the savoury fruits of the medium-bodied palate have ample length
and good balance."

The Basket Case Shiraz 2013
"The 2012 was pretty good, and I think that this is better again.
Quite spicy for a Barossa wine - brown spices to be specific, raspberry, some licorice and malt, wood well in the background. Medium bodied, dry and crunchy feel with a nice spread of fleshy tannin, red and black fruit and savoury flavours. Has a bit if finesse and perfume about it, but still speaks of region and variety"
The Basket Case 2013
"There is all the power and persistence you would expect from a young Barossa shiraz here, but also with a little elegance and swagger. There's the intense aromas and dark black fruit notes you would anticipate, but also a plush , relaxed attitude, perhaps due to the use of an old-style basket press in the winery. There are also some spicy elements in the background of this layered, textural wine and overall this is more a smart and savvy middleweight than some of the region's heavyweights. It would be superb matchd with lamb cutlets and short crust vegetable tarts. Lovely stuff"
