Barossa Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$260.00 Bottle
  • ABV 14%

Rockford Basket Press Shiraz enjoys a cult following, although we must admit, we have not always been enthusiastic about the wines. The 1998 Basket Press is, however, a very impressive wine. Very deep crimson colour, with deep crimson hue. Superb nose, with aroma of confectionary, vanilla and marzipan over a layer of spice plum and earth. The palate flavours are mouth filling, with strong flavours of plum, spice and black pepper, followed by layers of stewed fruit and liquorice on the back palate and just a hint of earth. Perfect balance, with fine grained tannins. Velvet smooth. Very long aftertaste of plum, spice, vanilla, black pepper and liquorice.
Cellar 4-5 years (2006-2007).
Alc/Vol 14%

RATING: 93/100

VALUE: XXXX/5

Additional notes sourced from eRobertParker.comsize>

"A fine offering was the 1998 Shiraz Basket Press. While not a great value, it is an outstanding effort displaying a dense purple color, a jammy, blackberry fruit bomb character, a supple texture, formidable glycerin, full body, and a lush mid-palate and finish. It should drink well for at least a decade. Drink 2001-2011"
