97 Points Robert Parker

The 2005 Syrah Piggott Range is quite backward currently. Glass-coating, it is deep crimson in color with mineral notes, violets, spice box, black pepper, espresso, smoked game, and blueberry aromatics. Deceivingly opulent, it has enough structure to merit 8-10 years of cellaring and should make old bones. Drink it through 2035.

96 Points James Halliday

Virtually impenetrable crimson-purple; this is the most savoury of the four top-end Clarendon Syrahs, with the mix of partial whole berry and whole bunch wild yeast fermentation departing from the normal whole berry approach; likewise, 18 months in 100% new French oak adds an exclamation mark to the lingering flavours of the finish and aftertaste, where perfectly weighted tannins come into their own; 560 dozen made. Drink to 2045.

96 Points James Halliday

What can only be described as a totally serious wine; extremely powerful, with multi-layered black fruits complexed by touches of earth and mineral; the tannins are perfectly balanced, the wine precisely where it should be. Drink to 2030.

First bottle corked. Second bottle offered a warm parade of firm, hay-infused, blackberried flavour, one dimensional in many ways but a stunning dimension it is. A wall of favour with a wall of tannin melted into the back palate. Dark chocolate notes are certainly present but are neatly shrouded by the darkness of the fruit. Drink to 2030.

95 Points James Halliday

Bright hue, led by purple; the structure of the palate is a feature, the texture also very good; there is a fresh juiciness to the wine that sets it apart, fruit more than tannins or oak gracing a seriously good medium-bodied syrah. Drink to 2041.

95 Points James Halliday

Deep, dense purple-crimson; whole bunches (as well as the usual Clarendon Hills whole berry approach) are included in the fermentation, coupled with 100% new French oak; while full-bodied, this wine has more elegance and supple mouthfeel, the tannins slightly softer, though abundant. Drink to 2040.

94 Points James Halliday

Dense purple-red; the bouquet is spotlessly clean, with potent, powerful black fruit aromas which have absorbed the oak; the palate is crammed with blackberry fruit, the oak once again int he background, finishing with long, persistent tannins. A genuine 20-year proposition. Drink to 2020.
