Yalumba ‘Paradox’ Northern Barossa Shiraz 2013

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 24-Nov-2016
Very full, near-saturated black-red colour with youthful purple hues. This has an elegantly full bouquet with a core of ripe blackberry fruit along with savoury boysenberries and black pepper, spice elements, herbs and minerals, revealing fragrant violet florals. Medium-full bodied the palate possesses finely concentrated flavours of succulently ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit along with sweet spices, black pepper and mineral elements. The fruit forms a deep core, balanced and restrained by fine-grained, powdery tannin extraction. The palate is well-structured with integrated, ripe acidity. The mouthfeel and grip, and fruit sweetness flow positively to a finish with sweet black fruits, savoury spices and floral elements. This is a well-concentrated and structured Shiraz with stylishly restrained ripe black and blue fruits with funky spice and floral notes on a fine-grained, dry palate. Serve with casseroles and game meat dishes over the next 6-8+ years. Fruit from the Northern Barossa Valley, indigenous yeast warm-fermented in 30 hL open vats to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 20 months in mainly 500L puncheons, 14% new. Winemaker: Louisa Rose. 18.5/20 Nov 2016 RRP $32.00
