1995 Three Rivers Shiraz by Chris Ringland - 99 pts!
Since there are just under 50 cases of this wine for the world the tasting notes are short as they are primarily of academic interest. One-hundred-year old vines cropped at one ton of fruit per acre produced a virtually perfect wine of splendid concentration symmetry and length nearly a minute. An opaque black/purple color is followed by staggering aromas of black fruits truffles sweet earth and wood. With amazing viscosity density and concentration that transcend any Shiraz I have ever tasted this monumental wine represents an extraordinary achievement. Its low acidity and phenomenal richness should offer early accessibility but it promises to evolve for two decades or more. This may be the greatest Shiraz produced in Australia. P.S. A bottle left open for four days had no traces of fruit loss or oxidation. RP
