Tasted just before bottling this fabulous Shiraz made from a 98- to110-year-old dry-farmed vineyard in the northern Ebenezer sector of Barossa was cropped at .12-1 ton of fruit per acre. Aged 15 months in a combination of American oak hogsheads and French barriques it is a brilliant effort from young winemaker Ben Glaetzer. Killer stuff with notes of crushed rocks acacia flowers graphite blackberries cassis and smoke it possesses extraordinary concentration tremendous purity a seamless personality and a magnificent finish that lasts over 60 seconds. Since this cuvee is never filtered this tasting note should be accurate if somewhat conservative for the bottled wine. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2016+.Importer: Benjamin Hammerschlag Epicurean Wines Seattle WA; tel. (206) 923-1376
