Barossa Valley Estate E & E Shiraz

Still in celebration mode, we opened a couple of bottles of the 1998 Barossa Valley Estate E & E Shiraz. Last night was an impossible act to follow, but this wine was pretty good as well.

Blackcurrant fruit, good concentration and length of flavour. Some savoury flavours coming through as well. The palate proves the strength of the 98 vintage. The wine was not quite as harmoneous as the wines last night, but the tannins and finish followed nicely from the initial fruit flavours. A very good example of Barossa Shiraz.
