As the name suggests, Barossa Old Vine Company wines are sourced only from the finest old Barossa fruit (150 year old vines). For more than 20 years winemaker Carl Lindner has not wavered in his passion for Old Vines and his desire to enhance the character and heritage of the Barossa region. Only a few, very special, old vine gardens remain, and their yields a very low. BOVC limits production to about 500 cases a year.
Robert Parker Jr. comments on the 2001 BOVC (96 points of 100)
The debut release from proprietor Carl Lindner, this 2001 is produced from 150-year-old Shiraz vines, and aged in 100% new American oak. This sensational effort boasts a saturated inky/purple color in addition to aromas of roasted scorched earth intermingled with blackberry liqueur, new saddle leather, and spice box. Dense, full-bodied, thick, and viscous, this incredible old vine shiraz should drink well young, yet last for two decades.
