2009 Oliverhill Red Silk Shiraz Mclaren Vale South Australia 750ml

Oliverhill is a small boutique winery located in McLaren Vale South Australia (McLaren Vale has been referred to as the middle palate of Australian wine). Linda and Stuart Miller own this winery, which was founded in 1973, and is near the spectacular Onkaparinga Gorge National Park. They specialise in premium quality, limited production reds. Specifically, a single vineyard Shiraz, "Jimmy Section", coming from a small 5-acre plot planted 30 years ago; a Cabernet Sauvignon, grown on the lower section of the same vineyard along with some Durif; and a Grenache, sourced from the "Bradey Block" vineyard of old bush vines some 80 years old.

The wines represent the classic South Australian style, big and juicy with sweet black fruits, broad shouldered with substantial palate presence, yet maintaining balance and exceptional fruit intensity.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 91

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Deep garnet-purple colored, 2009 Red Silk Shiraz has aromas of freshly crushed blackberries, green peppercorns and red currant over dried leaves and loam. Full bodied with plenty of vibrant primary fruit on the palate, it has crisp acid, a medium-firm level of chunky tannins and a long finish with lingering dried Mediterranean herb flavors lending freshness. Drinking now, it should continue to give pleasure through 2016.

STEVE TANZAR RATING: 91

STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Bright purple. Ripe, spicy black raspberry and cherry-cola on the nose, along with a suave, building floral quality. Plush red berry flavors stain the palate, with tangy minerality providing energy. Finishes long and sweet, with excellent lift and harmonious tannins. I like this wine's blend of richness and energy.

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 90

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Supple, complex and inviting, offering a dazzling mix of cherry, guava, orange peel and licorice flavors that swirl together seamlessly, with fine tannins framing the generous finish. Drink now through 2019.
