Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz 2014

Just like The Scribbler, this Patchwork offers tremendous value for the asking price. Hunt around as it is often priced better on special, under twenty bucks, making it a super buy.

Packed with mulberries and blue fruits, milk chocolate and dark plums. It's certainly a generous wine but only carries 13.5% alc. The wine sat in a range of new and old American and French oak, some of which were octaves so it is safe to assume some parcels were destined for the older sibling, The Octavius.

Acid seems subdued and let's the fruit do all the talking. Baking spices loom up on a long and delicious finish.

A super drinking Shiraz which punches above its weight.

Drink now to ten years.

92/100 - Very good.
