98/100
Wine Advocate
“98 Parker Points. Deep garnet-brick, the 1999 Meshach has an intense nose of evolved aromas spice and dried berry aromas: sandalwood, cinnamon stick, anise, cloves and fenugreek over dried plums, dried mulberries, prunes and figs with hints of soy and espresso. Concentrated, full bodied and layered in the mouth, it offers a medium-firm level of very fine tannins, enlivening acid and a very long finish. It makes a gorgeous glass right now, though it should continue to cellar to 2020+. Tasting three vintages of Grant Burge’s flagship wine, Meshach, with him in Autumn 2011, he told me a bit more about the background of the wine. It’s named after his grandfather: “I was looking for a name that had something to do with longevity. My grandfather lived for 99 years and 9 months.” The wine has always been made entirely from old vine Barossa Shiraz, predominately coming from the Filsell vineyard planted in the 1920s. “When we started first making the wine in 1988 it was a 100% American oak. But then we thought the oak was too sweet. Since 1998 we use 20% French oak and 80% American. We made the change in 1998. The current vintage, 2006 Meshach, was released in March 2011. ”

Wine Companion
Fragrant black fruit aromas; excellent mouthfeel and balance; silky tannins and perfect oak. Fully deserves its multiple trophies and golds.

The Australian Wine Annual
Deep, dark red-ruby. Dusty perfume of small dark berries, black pepper and spices, along with fragrant mocha and chocolate barrel fermentation notes. An exceptionally elegant, feminine Meshach, with a silky palate of intense, concentrated dark berry fruits wrapped in fine, firm tannins. Creamy, superbly balanced and long, with a lingering herbal thread of fennel and clove.

Very sharp, hard work. Extremely jagged acidity. Chewy. Difficult to isolate the fruit! Well there is certainly a strong impression...! A wine for the patient.
