Barossa Valley, South Australia. 14%
Rather distinctive Penfolds warm climate red with that greasepaint aroma of added acid mixing with dense Shiraz fruit and American oak.
Concentrated and very age worthy considering the price, especially what this sold for back when this was on retail shelves.
A ripe firm, quite powerful vintage. Penfolds did well in 1998.
Drink now but it will continue to improve for at least another 5 years.
