Yangarra Estate Small Pot Whole Bunch Shiraz 2016
Devilishly delish. So much personality and charisma to sink your teeth into. The highlight for me is easily the savoury deliciousness courtesy of the whole bunches (25%).
Thickset, a Shiraz carrying broad shoulders and a firm muscular profile. 35% new French oak and 65% old for 15 months. Some pepper takes a back seat. The width this exudes is so engaging. Fine spices and pepper entwine beautifully with purple and dark fruits. Mulberries continue to roll out the welcome mat to play. Soft, moreish and incredibly satisfying. Puckering and chalky tannins urge a repour - and so you should.
Drink now to eight years.
