Back Vintages

Barossa

The Octavius Barossa Old Vine Shiraz

Shiraz 1997
  • Vintage quality: This vintage was challenging due to above average summer temperatures. Thankfully, the older dry grown vineyards were able to produce grapes of immense flavour and concentration.
  • Cellar guide: 10-15 Years
  • Last tasted: 2001, Kevin Glastonbury, Winemaker
  • Notes: The Octavius 1997 is deep cherry red in colour with a nose layered with liquorice, cherries, violets, and black olives supported by rich vanillin oak aromas. The palate is an explosion of sweet berry fruits, rich plums with long grainy tannins leading to and a warm peppery finish. Awards & Accolades: 2 Gold
