Second only to the 1990 which I can't review here, but truly in great shape
Absolute elegance with intensity and balance
It takes only 28 years to get such a grace from an OZ wine... Only kidding of course
Fantastic

You can tell straight away the social class
Rocky minerality not common for this reds
Just far too young still

So different from the 2000
More whispered and elegant
Multidimensional
Scents that play with each other
Still focused, but extremely more interesting on the nose
Explosion on the palate

I am definitely putting out on the fence the Rockford flag🀣🀣
This is so nice
Still extraordinary fragrant fruit decorated with liquorice
Super long
Young
It doesn’t leave your palate
Key points: focused intensity in the nose and persistence that never ends πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

I am changing my mind on this wine; I’ve been opening different vintages for a customer and I am experiencing amazing taste buds feelingsπŸ€™πŸ»
But the real plus of this iconic Shiraz is the persistence, it never vanishes, never fades away. It stays with you.

On the downhill slope but still with plenty of intrigue. Ended up sipping it almost like a Port. Maybe bottle variation?
