Yalumba Barossa Shiraz 2010

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 06-May-2013
Shiraz fruit from a variety of sites in the Barossa Valley, from vines 10 y.o. to over 35 y.o., fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 16 months 24% new American and French oak. Full, near impenetrable black-red colour. This has an elegant but well concentrated and intense nose of well-ripened black fruits with black pepper, plums and a little eucalypt, harmoniously presented, unfolding notes of liquorice and spices. Medium-full bodied and quite elegant in proportion, black berry and plum flavours are laced with spices, liquorice and pepper, and show with excellent depth. The fruit is supported by fine, grainy tannins and underlying acidity for liveliness, the palate flowing with tightness and linearity. Oaking is very sensitive and the flavours reveal some bitter chocolate and black pepper on a long and sustained finish. This is a tightly constructed and elegant Shiraz with ripe black, peppery fruit and the structure to match roasted venison and game meats over the next 5-6 years. 17.5+/20 May 2013 RRP $14.99
