Rockford Basket Press Shiraz 1998

Winery: Rockford
Region: Barossa Valley
Wine: Basket Press Shiraz
Variety: Shiraz
Vintage: 1998
UOM: 750ml

"A supremely complete, elegant and stylish shiraz which remains totally faithful to its Barossa heritage. Opulent and exotically perfumed, its pristine aromas of spicy plum and dark berry fruit are laced with licorice and peppery undertones, while sweet chocolate oak contributes smoothness and depth. More concentrated and powerful than the 1996 vintage, its thick weight of fruit is perfectly complemented by powerful, sinewy tannins. 96 Points" - Jeremy Oliver

"It drinks like an airport novel, all guts and kisses, like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Syrupy blackberry. A soft mesh of oak. Length. Balance. Fruit integrity. A tarry earthiness that is pure Barossa. It is a very good wine, a mouth-romp. It is a wine to be lavished and enjoyed."
