Yalumba ‘Patchwork’ Barossa Shiraz 2015

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 25-Mar-2018
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is initially a little shy, but unfolds to show a concentrated heart of very ripe blackberry fruit with notes of liquorice, black pepper and Asian spices, and some cedary and pencilly oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate has intense and well-concentrated flavours of ripe blackberry fruit entwined with black plum, liquorice and black pepper, unveiling a layering of Asian spices. The fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure with balanced acidity, and the wine carries with good drive along an elegant line, leading to a long, lingering, oak nuanced finish. This is an elegant and well-concentrated, ripe Shiraz with black fruits, black pepper, liquorice and spices on a fine-structured palate. Match with roasted lamb, beef and venison, and semi-hard cheeses over the next 6+ years. Barossa Shiraz fruit fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 7% new American oak hogsheads and octaves, and 3% new French oak hogsheads and barriques. Winemaker: Kevin Glastonbury. 18.5/20 Mar 2018 RRP $24.95
