Mount Langi Ghiran Shiraz 1999

I now get Mount Langi Ghiran shiraz.  It's not that I didn't get it before - I've always thought their shiraz both good and well priced for a "flagship" wine - I just hadn't realised that their shiraz could be this good.  The 1999 shiraz has an aroma of intense white pepper and green peppercorns.  "Pepperama" in fact.  On the palate, there is pepper, a depth of plum flavours and viscous length.  An outstanding wine that deserves seeking out.  95 points (8/10)

Abv: 14.5%
Price: $85 (current vintage)
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Is the Pope Catholic?
