2001 Chris Ringland Shiraz formerly Three Rivers - 100 pts!
The Chris Ringland formerly known as Three Rivers Shiraz which is aged 42 months in 100% new French oak and is rarely racked until bottling represents an extraordinary expression of Barossa Shiraz. The monumental 2001 Shiraz, from a 91-year old vineyard, spent 43 months in new French 300-liter hogsheads. The result is a compelling wine of great richness, flavor breadth, and length. An inky/blue/purple color is accompanied by extraordinary scents of flowers, blackberries, blueberries, and cassis as well as hints of espresso roast, truffles, roasted meats, and incense. This sexy, beautifully balanced, loaded Shiraz should keep for three decades or more. RP
