Best of Shiraz 2013

By James Halliday.

The number of wines receiving 96 points or more may seem extreme, but in fact expressed as a percentage of the total number of wines tasted, it is no greater than that for riesling, semillon and chardonnay. Moreover, there is tremendous diversity of style from the resurgent Hunter Valley, thence through the whole of Victoria, most of South Australia and thence to the southwest of Western Australia. Finally, the 2010 vintage was exceptional in almost all regions, ’09 more than useful in most.
