98 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "The star of this year's lineup is the 2017 Lamella Shiraz, sourced from a single dry-grown Eden Valley vineyard in the vicinity of Henscke's Mount Edelstone and Hill of Grace vineyards. It shows a healthy dusting of cracked peppery and dried spices but also layers of red and blue fruit and savory notes of black olives and espresso. Full-bodied and silky but taut, it ideally needs another 2-3 years of cellaring to soften the tannins on the long, dusty finish. Drink: 2022-2040. (Nov 2019)"

97 points James Suckling: "Extraordinary fragrance and complexity really sets this apart, as does the very cleverly pitched ripeness that has impressive impact, without stepping over the mark. The blackberries and spices, raspberries and sweet florals lead to a palate that has a fresh array of intense fruit. A great and unique single-vineyard shiraz and a wine with phenomenal depth of flavor, delivered with such balance and grace. Drink or hold. (12/2/19)"

95 points Wine Spectator: "A powerful, complex and highly detailed wine, with thick, velvety tannins and a stunningly long finish. Wild blueberry, huckleberry and spiced plum notes are accented by cumin, clove, white pepper, mineral and Saigon cinnamon details. Everything sings in harmony on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2035. 24 cases imported. (5/13/20)"
