Reviews For This Wine

Jancis Robinson | 18.5

This wine had 40 months in new French oak and has only just been released. Dry grown in the Barossa Ranges according to the label.  1000 bottles.Extremely deep crimson and exceptionally powerful Syrah (not Shiraz) nose. Extremely dense but with a clean, fresh finish. This really does taste like chocolate covered Turkish Delight. Ringland claims 1999 is an unfairly overlooked vintage.

The Chris Ringland (formerly known as Three Rivers Shiraz), is aged 42 months in 100% new French oak, and is rarely racked until bottling, represents an extraordinary expression of Barossa Shiraz. The intense 1999, released in 2004, demonstrates that this vintage is somewhat underrated after all the hype over 1998. From a vineyard planted in 1910, its inky/purple color is accompanied by aromas of lavender, lard, smoke, licorice, blackberries, cassis, espresso roast, chocolate, and pepper. Full-bodied, slightly less voluminous than the perfect 1998, with an unctuous texture, sweet tannin, and a 70+ second finish, this magnificent, still young Shiraz should be accessible in 3-5 years, and last for two decades.

Undrinkable. Loads of VA and shockingly thin on the palate. Not remotely close to prior bottles. Given the tiny production of this wine I wouldn't think that bottle variation would be a problem but apparently it is. Extremely disappointing.
