91 Points - Robert Parker

This 2002 reveals the vintage’s cool climate character in its restrained aromas and flavors as well as its European-like elegance and ripe flavor. The 2002 Shiraz 1914 spent 22 months in 50% new American and the rest older French and American barrels. Reminiscent of a Northern Rhone offering, it is a pure, elegant Shiraz exhibiting notes of tapenade, black cherries, berries, flowers, licorice, and barrique.

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
