2006 101 Year Old Vine Barossa Valley Shiraz
From a flavor profile perspective, Lot 77 is much the same. Stylistically, Lot 77 wine is very similar to Lot 38, but the bigger overall tannin structure is only now beginning to release the fruit—clearly this is another cellar selection. Cork finished.
The following is from my Lot 38 write-up: "The color is an attractive deep, dark purple hue, and the initial aromas expose the intensity and depth of the wine. A myriad of rich, ripe berry fruits with spice undertones from the oak are complemented by the glorious complexities of the characters of fine leather, flavors that are only derived from intense, old vines."
Style: Full, Bold
