Yelland & Papps Shiraz Roussanne 2012
Quite muscular in its delivery, there's what seems to be a red currant lift. Oak is a bit heavy on the heavy side for mine and is showing its dominance over the fruit.
A blend of 90% Shiraz and 10 % Roussanne, mulberries and plum coat the mouth with a wash of bitter chocolate and spice at the finish. The Roussanne freshens the wine nicely adding some raspberry and cherry aromas lightening the heavier Shiraz component.
With all this in mind, this lingers long and generously. It's not hard to keep guzzling away.
