The 1999 Springflat Shiraz has dense, opaque purple color, a real intense, minty, creme de cassis nose, with some spicy new oak. the wine is certainly not shy at 15.3% alcohol, but the power is well-harnessed, and the wine is primarily; a big, full-bodied, thick, juicy fruit bomb with plenty of texture, purity, and length. It should drink well for 7-8 years, perhaps longer.
Has impressively ripe flavors, dripping with blackberry, plum and anise on a steely frame, finishing with Victoria's distinctive crispness. Give it time to develop. Best from 2004 through 2010.
The 2000 Shiraz Springflat (100% Shiraz with 15% alcohol) was aged 17 months in American oak. It reveals lavish wood, abundant floral and black fruit characteristics intermixed with pepper and earth, and a spicy, fruity, sweet personality. It will provide enjoyment over the next 7-10 years.
