Fox Creek Shiraz Reserve 1998, 750mL (WA96, ST95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Fox Creek Shiraz Reserve

750mL

Vintage: 1998
Region: Australia
Appellation: McLaren Vale

WA96, ST95
Rated 96 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 1998 Shiraz Reserve has the most potential of this trio. It combines some of the mature elements of the 1997 with the massive richness of the 1996, but without the 1996`s slightly rustic framework. A dense purple color is followed by a sensational bouquet of creme de cassis, charcoal, and incense. Full-bodied, opulent, and voluptuously-textured, this is a big, but incredibly well-balanced wine. Its fruit bomb-like personality of a decade ago has morphed into something far more civilized, delineated, and refined. This gorgeous offering is a superb example of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Enjoy it over the next 10-15+ years.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `All of these wines were made by one of the wine bloggers` favorite whipping boys, Sarah and Sparky Marquis, who have since moved on to their own projects. I rated these Australian reds highly when they were first released, and lo and behold, they are still spectacular wines that are aging beautifully. They admirably demonstrate that the Marquis team knows a great deal about what they are doing.`
