Opulentes Bouquet: reife Pflaumen und Anklänge an Mokka-Schokolade, gut strukturiert und ausgewogen mit allen Aromen dunkler Früchte. Gut integrierte, dezente Tannine und langer, fester Nachhall.

Had paired with steak in Sydney, and although possibly influenced by an incredible meal, I loved this big and fruity wine. The whole package - isn't that part of it??

In early June I visited the cellar door expecting to taste such a great wine. Unfortunately I found the 2006 very disappointing. Further research shows that the Basket Press can be eratic for different vintages. Some are great and this is where the reputation comes from. Unfortunately all the group I was with expected something magical, but all we got was an average shiraz.

Aromatic and distinctive, with mint and cedar notes to tantalize the nose, weaving gamy flavors through the blackberry and spice as it all lingers on the firm-textured, sharply focused finish. Not as rich and gooey as usual for this Australian star. ... Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 1999 Rockford Shiraz Basket Press 750ml
