Fill level: Into Neck (IN)Question Mark Grape variety: Syrah/Shiraz

This wine was made at the Greenock Creek winery,while legendary winemaker Chris Ringland was still in charge of production:-

"The Shiraz Creek Block is made from 62-year-old vines and aged in a combination of new and French oak.Sadly,there are only 100 cases of it.The 1998 is a near perfect wine.This opaque,purple-colored classic shows terrific notes of beef blood,new saddle leather,blackberry liqueur,smoke,and earth.Extremely full-bodied,yet seamless,with dazzling levels of extract and ripeness,this is a tour de force in winemaking,but there is too little of it.The 1998 Creek Block looks to have the potential to go 20-30 years".
(98+ Points).
