Yalumba ‘Paradox’ Northern Barossa Shiraz 2015

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 13-Nov-2017
Full, saturated black-red colour, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full and voluminous with aromas of sweetly ripe blackberries, raspberries and plum fruit with liquorice and spice notes. The aromatics are harmoniously integrated and presented with aromatic, sweet oak elements adding interest. Medium-full bodied, the palate has deeply layered, rich and luscious fruit flavours of blackberries, dark raspberries and black plums, with notes of liquorice and spice notes. The fruit is well-concentrated, providing a softly dense and fine-textured palate with ripe tannins. The fruit richness provides good drive and line, and the wine carries to a lusciously long and sustained finish. This is a softly concentrated and deeply layered, fully ripened Shiraz with dense flavours of blackberries plums and raspberries on a fine-textured palate with great presence. Match with slow-cooked game meat and casseroles over the next 7-9+ years. Shiraz fruit from the Northern Barossa Valley, indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 11% new French oak puncheons. Winemaker: Louisa Rose. 19.0-/20 Nov 2017 RRP $33.00 Dark, deep black-red with slight garnet hues. The nose is softly full with harmoniously interwoven aromas of ripe, black and dark-red berry fruits with complexing savoury eucalypt and mineral notes, the nose building in density, unfolding layers of interest with aeration. Full, deeply packed and dense, with flavours of ripe blackberry fruit, the sweetness and lusciousness are complexed by plenty of savoury, gamey and earthy notes. The fruit richness is balanced by good, fine-grainy tannin extraction providing plenty of grip, but the flavours prevail to full the palate. Beautifully complex and layered, this will keep 10+ years. Shiraz fruit from the Moppa district, vines planted 1922, indigenous yeast fermented, and aged approx. 20 months in 15% new puncheons. 1,000 dozen made. 18.5+/20 Aug 2017 RRP $33.00
