RATINGS

99Robert M. Parker Jr.

...should equal the 1998 as it is almost a clone aromatically, texturally, and flavor-wise, just much younger. This opaque purple-colored beauty should flirt with perfection..

98Wine Spectator

...supple, round and pure, smoothly polished to the point where the tannins almost disappear...gorgeous blueberry, plum, mineral and subtle spice flavors...

94James Halliday

Rich, layered and complex black fruits, spice and licorice; excellent texture and structure.

93Stephen Tanzer

Aromatic nose combines black raspberry, cassis, chocolate, pipe tobacco, flowers and fruitcake.

REGION

Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley

South Australia is the nation’s most important wine region. South Australia is to Australia what California is to the U.S. About half of Australia’s wine comes from South Australia and many of the country’s most acclaimed producers are there. Wineries based in South Australia include Penfolds Grange, Torbreck, Amon Ra, Henschke and Jacob’s Creek. The prestigious Barossa Valley is located in South Australia, and is often compared to Napa Valley because it is gorgeous topography covered in grape vines. First farmed by 19th century German-speakers who immigrated from what is now Poland, the Barossa Valley is the crown jewel of the region. South Australia has widely varying climates, from very hot, dry areas to cooler, high altitude areas. There are more than 150,000 acres of vineyards in South Australia, with more being planted each month. Shiraz is king, though the region also produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mourvedre, Chardonnay and Semillon.
