Weighing in at a WHOPPING 12.5% alcohol level :-), this wine shows us how good Australian wines were/could be, without the big fruit and high alcohol readings. This was the first Shiraz to win the "best of label" at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show... now Shiraz is seen as one of Australia's best grapes. The wine still had legs, but not a lot more life in teh bottle. Well structured and elegant. It was a little dusty/dry on the palette due to age, but it oozed class. Very very enjoyable. Wish I had just 1 more, but don't we always.
