2000,七月推薦酒-1: Ebenezer 1996 Shiraz

酒名: Barossa Valley Estate 1996 Shiraz Ebenezer
酒廠: Barossa Valley Estate (澳洲)
售價: NT$9xx
販售處: 長榮桂冠酒坊
推薦程度: * * * *
推薦原因:

此美國零售價為29美元,而台北一瓶訂價台幣九百多,已與美國價格差不多了,如能再打個折扣,就比美國還要便宜了,因此價格上算是不貴。而最值得推薦的原因是它廣受各專業酒評一致的稱許: Wine Today給它四顆星,Wine Spectator給它92分,James Halliday給它91分,評價是有志一同的好,我個人喝過二次,也認為此酒做得很好,甜美可口,是我今年喝過的NT$1000以內的紅酒中頗值得推薦者。

有時網友會問我: 為何推薦程度只有四顆星? 答案很簡單,因為原本是有許多酒是值得給五顆星推薦的,但台北的酒友們都太精明了,通常這種物超所值的酒一出現就被識貨者搶光光了,小弟我寫了也是白寫,因此常常只能推薦四顆星的。例如Rosemount 1997 GSM,這是我今年喝過NT$1000以內最棒的紅酒,但此酒一進來還沒上零售店的架就已賣光光了,推薦也沒用;也有一些酒我看分數不錯,買的時後店裡也都還有不少,但我買了後沒有馬上品嚐,等我過了一陣子喝了覺得物超所值時,再回去買已經沒有了,因此也沒辦法推薦給大家。

以下是各專業酒評家的評分,供各位參考:

From Wine Spectator
Barossa Valley Estate 1996 Shiraz Barossa Valley Ebenezer
$29.00, rating: 92, 11/15/99
A serious red, packed with pepper-shaded plum and black cherry flavors that linger on the firm finish. Has personality and intensity, and should be a beauty for a long time.Best after 2001. (5000 cases produced)

From James Halliday
Barossa Valley Estate Ebenezer Shiraz 1996
Best drinking: 2001 - 2011
Drink with: Lamb, rabbit or hare
Price Guide: $27.00
May 20 1999 , rating: 91
Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet is rich and concentrated, with masses of sweet vanilla oak floating on top of the fruit. The roles are more or less reversed on the palate, with richly opulent and concentrated dark cherry fruit with a smooth coating of oak and a base of soft tannins.
