Back Vintages

Barossa

The Octavius Barossa Old Vine Shiraz

Shiraz 1996
  • Vintage quality: 1996 was a perfect growing season and this wine is destined to be one of the all time great Octavius'.
  • Cellar guide: 10+ Years
  • Last tasted: 2000, Kevin Glastonbury, Winemaker
  • Notes: Inky purple/black in colour with incredibly youthful hues. The nose displays very powerful primary fruit, stewing plums and tarry liquorice notes followed by a rich, sweet, coffee, and chocolate oak background. The palate is firm, focused and chewy with multiple layers of complexity. This is a brooding wine that will develop into one of the all time greats.
