2009 Charles Cimicky Autograph
"Dense, opaque colour; the bouquet and palate live up to the colour, but it is not over-extracted, and has very good balance between its abundant black fruits, oak and tannins; there is a very attractive earthy/savoury character to the palate that positively adds to the wine. Drink by 2030." (09/11) - 95 Pts James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion
"Very deep purple-black colored, the 2009 Autograph Shiraz is intensely scented of creme de cassis, black cherry preserves and dried plums with hints of fruit cake, baking spice, cedar and licorice. Full, rich and voluptuous in the mouth, it has a medium-high level of acid injecting just enough freshness with medium-firm grainy tannins to lend texture, finishing long and layered. Drink it 2013 to 2024+." (02/12) - 94 Pts Lisa Perrotti-Brown - The Wine Advocate
"Generous, focused and appealing for its savory herb and anise notes around a lean core of blackberry and spice. This has intensity and deftness, with power. Drink now through 2019. 1,000 cases made. -HS" (04/13) - 90 Pts Wine Spectator
"Czech immigrant Karl Cimicky founded Karlsburg Winery in 1973 near the southern Barossa town of Lyndoch. In the early 90's, Karl's son Charles began to take a keen interest in winemaking and the 'good' wines started turning into awesome wines. In addition to top of the line fermenters and barrels, Cimicky also has an estate bottling and labeling line, something of a rarity in Australia, allowing him to personally control all facets of production. Charles Cimicky produces rich, voluptuous, generous wines with superb balance from 8 year-old Petite Syrah vines, 30 up to 80 year-old Shiraz vines and 80+ year-old Grenache vines. Apart from minor drip irrigation in January and February when needed, the vines are dry grown, cover-cropped and organically fertilized. Now in his late forties Charles Cimicky is one of the most quality-driven, meticulous winemakers in South Australia. " - Importer
2005 Old Plains Power Of One Shiraz
"Medium-bodied; ripe, rich blackberry and plum fruit; soft tannins run through the length of the palate; controlled oak, and a long finish. Vines planted in the 1950s. Drink by 2020." (10/06) - 93 Pts James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion
"Saturated purple. Powerful, liqueur-like blueberry and plum aromas are accented by exotic fruitcake and licorice. Fat and oily, with sweet dark fruit compote flavors, soft tannins and a late kick of clove. Exotic stuff, finishing sweet, velvety and long. This one won't convince traditional palates, though." (07/07) - 90 Pts Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"The Power of One best explains our passion for the great grape, Shiraz. This wine is a tribute to the gnarly old vines planted in the 1950s on the Adelaide Plains that escaped the vine pull schemes of the 1980s. Hand made with minimal intervention, basket pressed, open fermenters and bottled without filtering. Share our passion for the Power of One." - Winery
"Great wine begins in the vineyard and for Old Plains and Longhop nothing is more important. Our vineyards are unique, remnant plantings that have survived urban expansion and the pursuit of other agricultural profits. They also escaped the vine pull schemes that were popular during the 1980s. These government sponsored schemes saw old, low yielding vines uprooted with the help of subsidies and replaced by cash crops of vegetables and wheat. In some instances vast tracts of old vine shiraz was replaced by chardonnay! What a waste."
"The remaing small vineyards are true masterpieces of wine grape flavour, weathered, gnarly and magnificent in their defiance of commercial expansion. Wine made by flavour not by numbers, is one way of describing our approach to winemaking. Its a year round, hands on approach that makes our wine unique. The hard work never seems to end but seeing the wines evolve over time is truly rewarding." - Winery
