Murray Street Vineyards Benno Shiraz

96 Points James Halliday

Bright, full crimson-purple; a classic Barossa Valley shiraz from a great vintage that effortlessly carries its alcohol; the bouquet and palate have plum and blackberry fruit on a cushion of integrated oak and tannins, a slightly savoury twist adds to the interest and complexity of the wine. Drink to 2040.

96 Points James Halliday

Deep, dark colour; like the Rhône blend, it is a very impressive wine, with highly focused black fruits and excellent structure; will live for decades. Mataro/Shiraz. Drink to 2026.

95 Points James Halliday

A blend of shiraz and mataro. The colour is slightly lighter than its shiraz siblings, providing a subtle indication of the different vectors in play, with hints of dark chocolate to the black fruits, and a slightly less compact structure. All of this is achieved without the high alcohol threatening to blow up the finish, which doesn't happen. Drink to 2037.

Great colour; lots of very good oak frames lashings of dark fruits, mocha and cassis; very long, fine, focused and particularly generous finish. Drink to 2020.

93 Points James Halliday

A dark and brooding bouquet, with charred meat and black fruit in abundance; the palate is thickly textured, dense and chewy, with ironstone and tar remaining on the long and ample finish. Shiraz/Mataro. Drink to 2020.

93 Points James Halliday

Some colour development; more savoury and spicy than The Barossa, but the texture and structure are very good, black cherry/blackberry fruit lighting up the back-palate. Shiraz/Mataro. Drink to 2020.

90 Points James Halliday

This shiraz mataro blend is very ripe, so much so that there is a portiness to the bouquet, and the strong mocha/oak bouquet complements this well; the palate is big, rich and generous, and for lovers of big end of town, mouth filling full-bodied red wine, this will certainly satisfy. Drink to 2018.

89 Points James Halliday

Radically different to the '02; has the tannins which mourvedre (mataro) is meant to have; they will soften, but so will the fruit; the judgment may prove to be harsh in the fullness of time. Drink to 2013.
