Hacker,

Thank you very much Hacker. yeah...all those wines are expensive, but my dad is a wine collector. He would spend a lot to buy some cult wines. However, me and my dad are both beginner on red wine, still learning hard^^. We used to drink hill of Graces and Granges. I reckon they are very nice especially hill of grace. It is very cheap to buy wines here compare to the price in HK. In HK, a 1998 Grange would cost AUS $1500 in cellar....it's pretty crazy. Anyway, thank you for your advise^^

All the best,
Ivan

Ivan,

I'd be surprised that you would spend very large amounts of money on these wines without first thinking about drinkability!

Depending on provenance, all the wines you mentioned have at least 5 years, possibly 10 years till they 'peak'. But if you like more fruit taste in your wines, now is as good a time to drink them. If you like more of a regional or 'terrior' focus, leave them in your cellar. Just make sure your cellar is cool and dark to do wines of this calibre some justice.

cheers,

David M.
