SKU: 982648-0818-109
South Australia
"91 out of 100 - The 1997 Shiraz (200 cases for the United States) is an unfiltered, jammy blackberry-scented, unbelievably sexy wine that some would call a "Parker hedonistic fruit bomb." Pure, rich, and full-bodied, with considerable viscosity, purity, and length. The wine is a big, mouth-filling, highly-extracted example to drink over the next 10-12+ years. Made by a native of Sweden, Thor Soderstrom, the Shiraz comes from relatively old vines. I was told that the grapes from one plot of 40-year old vines used to be purchased by Penfolds to be incorporated into their Grange. In 1996, this winery hired Rolf Binder to oversee the wine making." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate
