- Closure: Cork
The fruit for this wine was sourced from throughout the Barossa, from Shiraz vineyards that are at least 80 years of age, with 22% sourced from Eden Valley and 78% from Barossa Valley. Fruit from each grower is kept separate during crushing and fermentation, and throughout maturation in oak, until blending for bottling. The wine was matured in a combination of new and two year old American oak hogsheads for 28 months.
Tasting Notes: The excellent seasonal conditions of 1998 produced fruit with more texture, weight and richness than the 1997. Very deep crimson mauve colour. Superb nose of violets, spice, blackberry, liquorice and vanilla. Outstanding palate. Excellent length and depth. Complex flavours of mocca, toasted oak, vanilla, confectionary, spice, blackcurrant and very ripe plum. Perfect balance – very fine tannin structure, velvet smooth, followed by an exceptionally long aftertaste of blackcurrant, spice and vanilla oak.
Cellar 4 – 5 years.
An outstanding Old Block Shiraz!
