'1860 Vines' Shiraz Magnum

1997 '1860 Vines' Shiraz Magnum


Cork Closure - 13.5% Alcohol


"Medium red-purple; the moderately intense bouquet is smooth, with pleasingly sweet cherry/raspberry varietal fruit, the oak subdued. The palate, while driven by fruit, is very much the iron fist in velvet glove style, the tannin and extract management excellent.
Reminiscent of a 1971 Tahbilk Shiraz tasted a few days previously in another context."
James Halliday - www.winecompamion.com.au

"Tahbilk's 1860 Vines are a 'living miracle and an Australian treasure'."
The 1997 vintage is "Rich and ripe and juicy, with lovely plum, sultana and blackcurrant aromas jumping from the glass; the oak has largely been eaten up by the beautiful glowing fruit.
The palate is pure Tahbilk at its best; superfine strawberry and deep plum with a slight raisiny character which, even with its depth of flavour, maintains a light, succulent fleshiness.
Good acid. Very good length. An excellent Old Vines Shiraz."

Tahbilk '1860 Vines' Shiraz is produced from a 1/2 hectare un-grafted, pre-phylloxera original Estate planting - amongst the oldest Shiraz vines in the world.
After careful handpicking, fermentation takes place in century old oak vats followed by maturation in French oak for 18 months prior to bottling and then further bottle-aging before release. Appropriately an original Tahbilk label dating back to the 1870's has been tailored for this rare and unique wine.
Since its inaugural release in 1979 this piece of liquid history has become one of the most sought after and collectable wines throughout the world.
Tahbilk '1860 Vines' Shiraz releases are listed as "Outstanding" in Australian wine auctioneers - Langton's Classification of Australian Wine V - the noted reference to Australia's secondary (auction) wine market - being a "high performing wine of exquisite quality".
