(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.
great way to start off my yearly dinner of stuffed veal chops my dad always makes - the only thing I've ever asked for. Going Australian made sense since it was also a goodbye for my sis b4 she heads to Italy for 3 months & her subletter is from Melbourne.
