Seppelt St Peters Shiraz 1998

93 points

Great Western, Victoria, Australia. 14.5%

In spite of the 14.5% label this comes across as a medium bodied wine and with practically no tannin. But the flavour is gorgeous, classic shiraz, plus aged complexity. Top Aussie cabernets just don’t seem to show this aged character, at least at this age.

The acid is very soft. The oak is French and very restrained.

Absolutely not a blockbuster. Gorgeous.
