1998 Hardys Tintara McLaren Vale Shiraz

1998 Hardys Tintara Shiraz, McLaren Vale (cork): 14.5% alc. Impressive medium to dark red/crimson. Like the colour everything else about the wine still seems remarkably young, the nose full of fresh blueberry, blackberry, black olive, graphite and cedar oak, the palate building from the soft entry to a massive, tarry mid-palate, finishing with velvety, chalky tannin, sour plum and sweet cherry. No alcohol heat, silent but deadly. It’s a pity they don’t make them like this anymore – it’s a safe bet this will probably outlive any subsequent releases of the Tintara label by a fair margin.
