Tonight we drank the only bottle of 1998 Sandalford "Margaret River – Mount Barker – Swan Valley" Shiraz in the cellar. This was a limited edition wine. No Shiraz was produced by Sandalford in 99 or 2000, and to my knowledge, they haven’t done a release with named vineyards like this since 1998. Very perfumey on the nose. The bottle claims rose petals, and I think if you closed your eyes, and imagined very hard, you might agree. Very soft, very fruity. Lots of thick berries with a little smoke. Nice long finish. I like this bottle a lot, although it was not garnering great reviews even three years ago. Apparently it has improved with age.
