97 Points Robert Parker

The 1998 Shiraz Octavius is undoubtedly controversial given its volatile acidity. Nevertheless, it is a loaded, intense, rich, classic example of full-throttle and full-bodied old vine Barossa Shiraz. All the Octavius fruit is sourced from vineyards ranging from 70 to 100 years of age.

91 Points James Halliday

Medium to full red-purple; a highly scented bouquet with a mix of ripe fruit and lashings of new oak, the palate in similar mode exuding massive fruit, oak and tannins. Drink to 2018.
