Other Reviews…
The 2002 Basket Pressed Shiraz (from 40-year-old vines, and aged in neutral American wood for 12 months) elicits more than a few “wows”. This full-bodied, unctuously-textured, full-throttle, classic Barossa is magnificently concentrated as well as pure, multi-dimensional, and loaded. It can be drunk now, but promises to age for 10-15 years.
There is no holding the brakes on the offerings from proprietor Bruno Tait, who likes his wines packed and stacked. As I wrote last year, readers looking for European-styled, restrained, delicate reds will have their sensitivities offended by these boisterous, exuberant, full-throttle, palate-coating reds. However, they are to be admired for their singularity, purity, and extraordinary amount of fruit.
