Brothers in Arms

1999 Brothers in Arms Shiraz

Deep in colour, the 1999 Brothers in Arms Shiraz displays rich, ripe blackberry, vanillin and raspberry aromas with a hint of eucalypt. The palate is opulent and full bodied with warm, silky, soft blackberry and peppery flavours and a fine tannin finish. Enjoyable drinking now, however it will continue to gain greater complexity and softness with careful cellaring over 10 to 15 years.

The Wine Advocate 2002

These are the most exciting discoveries from the editor's tasting. They are high scoring, low production wines from around the world that may be difficult to find, but are worth seeking out.
Wine Spectator USA 2002

Only 450 cases of this wine were produced. Most of it was exported to the USA. We had one recently and it was beautifully fresh. Let us know if you are lucky enough to drink one!! Cheers!
