The world-class 2018 Shiraz The Armagh has the potentially perfect mix of raw power, style and structure. It radiates fruit pastille, cassis, clove, violet and granitic aromas, with toasty oak providing a solid canvas. Tight, focused and beautifully composed, there is exceptional underlying energy to the waves of flavor. A strong seam of drying tannins supports the sustained, savory finish. Just brilliant.

James Suckling

The explosion of black and blue berry aromas with a dazzling interplay of fruit and oak takes your breath away. Very concentrated and compact, but not a jot too heavy at 13.8% alcohol. The incredibly fine tannins provide an extremely sensual texture, yet everything is precisely balanced at the super-long finish. The best ever Armagh! Drink or hold. Screw cap. (10/2022)

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Deep garnet-black colored, the 2018 The Armagh Shiraz strides out with confident notes of stewed black plums, black cherry preserves, and Indian spices, followed by fragrant wafts of garrigue, peppered salami, and camphor with a lifted waft of roses. The medium-bodied palate is elegant and refreshing, delivering chewy tannins and loads of savory layers, finishing fragrant. (08/2022)

Parker – Wine Advocate

I thought that the 2014 had completely stolen my heart, but then there was this 2018 The Armagh Shiraz, bottled under Stelvin. This saw no American oak, as 2017 was the first year of 100% French. This is the first year with puncheons (no hogsheads) as well. It is so good, sensational, with a perfect fruit profile and orange oil character. It is fresh, beguiling, supple, intense, elegant, refined and full—all the good and important things in confluence here. It has 13.6% and matured for 18 months in 75% new and 25% one-year-old French oak hogsheads (300 liters) and puncheons (500liters). This is a superstar. The drinking window may be conservative—closure and winemaking could put this at 40 years with ease. And beyond.
