Cedary sweet wood nose; lovely sweet-fruited mid-palate, oak not that classy: locally-coopered? Tight and firm but starting to mellow out nicely. Now to 10+ years. Not as elegant as some later vintages.
Tasted: 29/09/2007
Drink: N/A

91 Points Robert Parker

Deep garnet-brick in color the 1998 RWT Shiraz opens to notes of Old Chesterfield, beef drippings, Bovril, sandalwood and sultanas. Quite elegant and fine on the palate, it is a little woody and finishes long and spicy.

90 Points James Halliday

Medium to full red-purple; the powerful, rich and complex bouquet offers ripe fruit and lots of oak. The deep, strongly structured palate has the abundant fruit the bouquet promised, but the overall impact of the oak and tannin extract needs time to settle down. Drink to 2013.

1998 was the 2nd vintage produced of the RWT (standing for Red Winemaking Trial). It offers an evolved, earthy, tobacco and forest floor nose over notes of warm black berries and dried mint. Full bodied, there's a great combination of berry-laced and savory flavor in the mouth supported by firm fine-grained tannins and crisp acid, finishing long.Source: Robert Parker (In Asia) January, 2012 by Lisa Perrotti-Brown
