1997 Clarendon Hills "Liandra Vineyard" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1129028 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1997 Shiraz Liandra (14.5% natural alcohol) is a blend of the Clarendon and Kangarilla vineyards. It has an opaque purple color, as well as black cherry and blackberry-scented aromatics with tarry pepper notes. The wine is enormous, with extraordinary fatness and succulence, an unctuous texture, as well as a long, 35-second finish. Drink it over the next 12-15 years. This wine is a crowd-pleasing, exotic offering that takes the level of richness and hedonism to sensational heights. This wine is worth trying if only because of its compelling purity, opulence, and explosive richness. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2002)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby-red. Slightly high-toned, complex aromas of cassis, redcurrant, Christmas spices, black olive, eucalyptus and earth. Thick, sweet, layered and quite concentrated; conveys a chewy impression of extract. Finishes with firm, slightly tough, tongue-dusting tannins and a note of dried spices. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/1999)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Firm in texture, almost chewy, with bursts of blueberry, blackberry and anise flavors, plus a hint of chocolate on the finish. (HS) Inner quote mark (5/1999)
