Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 98

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.

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.

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.

Wine Varietal: Syrah

While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
