    March 9, 2019 - Aged well in the cellar. The nose was enticing upon opening and the long finish was rewarding. It is a very elegant wine

    November 10, 2018 - This was missing most signs of fruit life, though showed some pedigree. The spice was well-integrated. Overall though, just not showing as well as one would expect. I still fondly remember how utterly stellar the ‘98 was, though its heyday is long past.

    June 1, 2018 - A well balanced & integrated Shiraz from Elderton. Deep garnet red, full body, amazing nose & strong richness of raspberry, black cherry & vanilla notes, well-integrated soft tannin & alcohol after many years of aging in cellar. Bravo!

    May 29, 2018 - Very interesting. The first taste on opening showed me some savoury notes which I didn't expect. It was thin. I thought it was past its prime. But after letting it sit for a while and with the food. It begin to change. It is a true blue well-aged Shiraz. Very well made wine. I can see the clear structure in the wine. Started with that slight salty notes with a clear red fruit palate, ending with a nice typical Shiraz ending. Medium finish. Good wine with a not so good finishing. Enjoyed it. Dinner at Colin house with family.
