Yangarra Estate Shiraz 2017

Damn this is a superb Shiraz. The richness and density just pull you in.

The asking price has gone up $5 from the 2016 release but just pay it. There's plenty of Shiraz wines for $50 that wouldn't come close to what is on offer here.

A fifth of the ferment was made with 25% whole bunches. Wild yeast fermented, it saw 25% new French oak for 16 months. Certified organic and biodynamic.

As with the 2016, purple and blue fruit aromas reign supreme. Some cedar and dark chocolate are evident too. It's lush to taste. Dark plums are joined by blueberries and mulberries all roaming about consuming the mouth with silky feels. Savoury notes sit in the background courtesy of the whole bunches with brick dust tannins to finish. Superb drinking really.

Drink now to ten years+
