Scarborough Wine Co. Shiraz 2002 From the Cellar 19 years old. The last bottle of an original case from @scarboroughwines After some reminiscing, I realised that this bottle of wine had been through a lot. Actually 17 years of my life. I think I bought it around 2004. Living side by side. Sure I forgot about it and didn’t treat it as best I could. I’m sure for the first few years it stayed in the original cardboard box, while in living 1 bedroom flat (when did flats become units and units become apartments? anyway back to the wine) It was only a toddler when it moved to an actual wine rack under the stairs of a townhouse. During its preteens, it was placed in a very basic wine fridge. It was a bit like your first car. It worked (sometimes) and wasn’t that good but it saved a lot of wine during those #sydney heatwaves. A couple of moves in between and during its mid teens it moved to a climate controlled walk in cellar. Now that was living, 5 Star all the way. A constant 14 degrees. But, things don’t last forever. A couple of years ago, it made its last move. Lets call it a downsize and ended up in 160 bottle @delonghi _au wine fridge. I honestly though this was well past its drinking, so without any fanfare I cracked it open. I was instantly disappointed. I don’t think this wine was originally made for be callared for 19 years and I didn’t plan to keep it for 19 years, but when you collect anything, things become sentimental. Instant memories. Just one of those I never opened. The result, vinegar? Lifeless? Old and boring? Heatstroke? No, it was bloody beautiful. So why was I disappointed? It was my last one…simple… #huntervalley #huntervalleynsw #scarborough #scarboroughwine #wine #screwcap #winetime #cellardoor #cellar #winecellar #winecellardesign #winecellars #winerack #wineracks #understairs #oldwine #2002 #2002vintage #winevineyard #hunterwine @huntervalleystays #fromthecellar #openthatbottlenight #bottleofwine #winebottle #fridaywine #danmurphys #hunterregion #regionalnsw #visitnsw
