Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz 2013

There's some wines which always seem to please year after year, and positioned with pride on that list is this Mr Reliable from the Barossa.

A blend of several vineyard parcels hence the name 'Patchwork'. Furthermore, there's always value to be found as it is often priced below the RRP of $22.

Find dense and generous dark fruits with a lick of fruit sweetness and some vanilla. Oak is evident but not too heavy handed and the finish is smooth and long finishing with puckering type tannins. Overall, a balanced and well rounded drink. A 'go with anything' sort of red.

Drink medium term.

Very good.
