2015 Ron Thorn Shiraz Single Vineyard Barossa - 95 PTS - WA

wa95"Yes, the 100% new oak shows on this bad boy, but the fruit is so massively concentrated that I don't see it being a problem. The 2015 Ron Thorn Single Vineyard Shiraz is a full-bodied, plush wine, with loads of baking spices, vanilla, boysenberry and cola. Long and dusty on the finish, this should be a long-lived wine. - Joe Czerwinski"

2016 Ron Thorn Shiraz Single Vineyard Barossa - 91 PTS & Cellar Selection - WE

wine enthusiast 91 pts"This big-boned Barossa Shiraz lets its premium nature be known inside and out, from the heavy bottle to the lashings of polished oak billowing over masses of dark-berry fruit. Mint, chocolate and vanilla are there too and while there's plenty of flash here, there's also a good deal to like. The palate gets even more serious when plush silky fruit is gripped by vice-like tannins. This rich wine is made for the long haul so don't touch it yet. Drink 2021–2034. CHRISTINA PICKARD"

2016 Ron Thorn Shiraz Single Vineyard Barossa - 94 PTS - HWC

halliday logo"The best of the 40 batches of grapes vinified in the vintage, from Block 7 of the St Kitts Vineyard. Matured for 20 months in 100% new American oak, which combines with the tannins to thickly coat the mouth. Needs many years to soften the overall impact of the wine."

2017 Ron Thorn Shiraz Single Vineyard Barossa - 93 PTS - JS

james suckling hq logo plain"From a cooler vintage with powerful blue and purple-fruit focus, forest wood and dark-toned earthy notes. Some plum, iodine and rust-like notes, too. There’s a fleshy feel to the palate with nicely contained blueberries and plums on offer. Plush and smooth tannins abound. Drink over the next decade. Screw cap."
