1997 Clarendon Hills Piggott Range Vineyard Shiraz
(Tasted early 2000s) A magnificent wine! Opaque, with a crimson/purple edge. The nose is filled with aromas of violets, spice and vanilla. The palate is monumental - bigger than some of the 'biggest'. Literally grape concentrate of blackberry and plum. Firm tannins, yet well balanced and supported by the volumes of ripe fruit. Very powerful - mouthfilling - spectacular depth of flavours and aftertaste.
