(From 1999 Vintage) Milky, sweet, coffeed, really notice the oak coming through on these younger vintages. Acids and tannins not yet integrated – but there is a hell of a lot to be impressed by here. Lovely power, lovely softness, lovely hit of savouriness, and then significant length.

enjoyed with Maxim and Aija at moyston st with a great rib fillet steak and roast veggies. a soft purple colour, still quite intense, a wonderful bouquet alive with fruit, delicious, full bodied with fine supporting tannins, smooth to the finish, a wonderfully complex and beautifully structured wine. wine was a gift for dad for doing a talk to some gps in 1996. kept in his study and then the last 18 months in his penfolds wine fridge.
