1999 Chris Ringland Shiraz formerly Three Rivers - 98 pts!
The Chris Ringland formerly known as Three Rivers Shiraz is aged 42 months in 100% new French oak and is rarely racked until bottling represents an extraordinary expression of Barossa Shiraz. The intense 1999 released in 2004 demonstrates that this vintage is somewhat underrated after all the hype over 1998. From a vineyard planted in 1910 its inky/purple color is accompanied by aromas of lavender lard smoke licorice blackberries cassis espresso roast chocolate and pepper. Full-bodied slightly less voluminous than the perfect 1998 with an unctuous texture sweet tannin and a 70+ second finish this magnificent still young Shiraz should be accessible in 3-5 years and last for two decades.
