94 Points Tyson Stelzer
With his vines now 20 years of age, Mike Press has elevated his shiraz this vintage to a style more about fruit ripeness and less about oak, though - crucially - without downplaying the cool climate credentials of his special, high site. Mike was nervous he'd taken it too far, but he need not fear: this is a mighty Adelaide Hills shiraz that will enthral his band of loyal followers with its deep, luscious and adorable black cherry, black plum and blackberry fruit, with the presence and stature that will win some new fans, too. It doesn't demand the length of bottle age that it's called for in the past, but don't underestimate its potential, because it's charged with the tangy acid and fine tannin structure to hold its own for many years yet. Drink 2018 - 2026.
