Yangarra Estate Ironheart Shiraz 2016
A sublime example of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Superbly handled, this has nothing but a beating heart that oozes class and precision.
Sourced from a 1.8 hectare site which lies on a gravelly ironstone outcrop. Handpicked with 25% whole bunches used, wild yeast fermented before seeing 15 months in French oak (35% new).
The fruit is elegant and glides through the mouth. Beautifully weighted, the balance of fruit and oak is insatiable. Delicate savoury influences are highlighted by fennel, clove and licorice which mesh with ease culminating in a finish which rides long leaving a sexy spicy hum in its wake. Just wow.
Decant before drinking now or cellar for a decade+
Region: McLaren Vale
