Brown’s of Padthaway T-trelis Shiraz 1998 (review)

83 points

Padthaway, South Australia.

Fairly deep dark red for its age. Has thrown considerable crust. A rich, sweet, old fashioned commercial shiraz. Added acid noticeable.

This wine has not benefited particularly from age. It was better when fresher. Very old-fashioned, ripe without great concentration, and a dollap of added acidity.

The difference in quality between this and their ‘Ernest Family Reserve’ is quite pronounced. When the two wines are released drink this one, and cellar (and buy more of) the Ernest.
