1999 Chaleur Estate 1.5L
This is an outstanding vintage for Chaleur Estate. The wine possesses an incredibly dense purple color. It has a powerhouse nose of deep black fruits, plums and cassis and is embraced with a floral, violet character. The fact that this wine has tons of everything in it brings balance. Its structure is one of weight, concentration, grip and intensely ripe flavors. Moreover, this wine has style. The oak integration has a sweet spicy, layering effect that seamlessly mingles gently with the fruit. Every angle this wine gives you seems to have a wonderful combination of power and delicacy. This vintage of Chaleur Estate is definitely a “keeper”.
