A wine score is the quickest, simplest way for a wine critic to communicate their opinion about the quality of a wine. Professional wine rating scores from a wide range of critics, for example Robert Parker's Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator, are usually adjusted for the 100-point scale. A mean of these scores is presented for specific vintages of a wine, as well as across all vintages.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Hoffman Vineyard Shiraz possesses an extraordinary nose of cassis, crushed blackberries, earth, Bovril and yeast extract with licorice, spice box and dried herbs hints. Full-bodied, rich and densely packed, with a lovely backbone of ripe tannins and great freshness, the long finish here is just incredible. A true "wow" wine, this complex beauty certainly has the potential to hit "perfection" with a little more time in bottle. RP
A good marriage of food and wine ideally provides more pleasure than enjoying either one separately. As each of us have different sensitivities to various flavours and preferences, the definition of 'perfect pairing' varies, and this makes up the fun part of food and wine pairing.
Deep garnet-black colored, the 2009 Hoffman Vineyard Shiraz offers notes of baked berries, cherry cordial, blackberry pie and Indian spices, with hints of mince meat, aniseed and dried herbs. The palate is a blockbuster: very full-bodied and voluptuous with chewy tannins and spices in the finish along with a fair bit of heat. RP
Chris Ringland Hoffmann Vineyard Shiraz 2012
Full-bodied, rich and supple, the long, licorice-tinged finish is swaddled in the softest, most-cuddly tannins imaginable. This is a beauty! RP
Chris Ringland Hoffmann Vineyard Shiraz 2013
Uber-intense blackberry, black cherry and cassis notes jump out of the glass with hints of cherry clafoutis, clove and baking spice, blackstrap licorice, bay leaf, earth, dark soy, smoked meats and dried herbs. The fruit weight and density is peaking the meters, the tannin long and sandy fine. JH
