1999 Happs Three Hills Shiraz
Region: Margaret River
Vineyard: Three Hills Karridale
Grape Variety: Shiraz 100%
Maturation: 12 months in 1 - 4 year old French Oak barriques and Puncheons
Winemaker: Mark Warren
Colour: Great colour intensity and still showing a hint of red in the hue
Tasting Notes: Concentrated aroma of leather and earth derived from bottle age with liquorice, Marachino cherry, plum, Christmas cake and dark chocolate with cognac and mushroom notes.
A full bodied intensely flavoured wine with a velvety mouth-feel. The palate is concentrated and ripe with raspberry coulis, plum skin, cola and choc mint flavours with hints of leather, liquorice and charcuterie. The tannins are dense but still silky soft and give the wine great texture and length. A wine standing the test of time.
