Elderton Barossa Shiraz 1999

91 points

Barossa Valley, South Australia. 14.5%

Dark colour – throwing a bit of crust.

At around 6-8 years from vintage this wine starts to show more traditional characters of added acidity, greasepaint, and also lovely savoury (somewhat Spanish) character. It really is the optimum time to drink.

This was a particularly good bottle, better than several I bought from the winery a couple of years ago (odd as one would have thought they had excellent cellaring conditions).
