Yalumba Samuel’s Collection Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Barossa

Blended Red from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 30-Sep-2021
Deep ruby-red with depth, light on edge. The nose is gently full and has richness, dark fruit nuances melded with liquorice, cocoa, eucalyptus and spices in harmony. Full-bodied, rich on the palate, packed with ripe plums, ripe blackberries, blueberries, unfolding black pepper, mocha, liquorice, cloves. Rich flavoured spices and mocha linger with a moderate tannin grip, added texture and weight. Balance acidity provides a smooth flow. This is a Barossa Shiraz with complexities of oak and spice on a fine-grained tannin structure. Match with grilled lamb over the next 5 years. Fermented to 14.5% alc, aged 11 months in 19% new French and Hungarian oak hogsheads and barriques, balance in 1 to 5-year-old French, American and Hungarian barrels. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $26
