"Way back in 98 I bought some Shiraz 1997 Vintage from Liquor Land Merrylands NSW.
In recent times I have opened some bottles with not so good report however in the last couple of days I have opened 2 bottles L0135 and L0156, apart from having a little problem with the corks and filtering the wine, I was very impressed with the taste, drinking a 20 year old wine indeed felt good. I can' t say that I have celled this wine at a consistent temperature but have always tried to keep it in the cooler parts of the house. Just thought I would share this with you guys.
Regards,
Richard Blackwell "

1998 Yalumba Galway Hermitage Shiraz

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$7.99 Bottle
  • Closure: Cork

Every 3-4 years Yalumba produces a Galway Hermitage that is exceptional from both the wine making aspect and value for money. The 1998 is a welcome relief for wine lovers, like a summer breeze after a heat wave of escalating wine prices. For some wine lovers it was almost back to the wine cask in order to display some budgetary restraints, but now all that is unnecessary. Even better news for young start up wine lovers is that this wine will continue to develop over the next 3-5 years making it a welcome buff against the WET (Wine Equalisation Tax) and the G.S.T. Magnificent youthful crimson purple colour, just vibrant with vigour. Lifted aromas of spicy ink, blackpepper nose. Full flavoured, rich ripe fruit. Mouthfilling with flavours of ripe plums, spice and just a hint of liquorice. Fine grained tannins, soft, with long plum, spice aftertaste. Outstanding value. Cellar 3-5 years.
