Yalumba The Persuader Shiraz 2014

As I pour this into the glass my attention is drawn to the dark appearance. A splash of Petit Verdot has made its way into this wine and its contribution is evident already.

The fruit has been sourced from various Barossa Valley floor sites. Purple flowers, clove, mulberries, dark berries and plum fruit, vanilla and dark chocolate come to the fore.

Soft delivery with a kick in the guts. There's some warmth in the mouth with a spicy tingle rattling home late.

Worth a look and well priced too - savvy shoppers will find it for under $20.

Drink now to five years.

90/100 - Very good
