Yangarra Estate King's Wood Shiraz 2018
Oh what a beauty! I'm drawn to this release more than the 2017 and that release was gorgeous in its own right. Stunning McLaren Vale Shiraz. A wine to embrace and keep close.
Made with 25% whole bunches, it was wild yeast fermented with no pressings used before spending 15 months in Foudre. Certified organic and biodynamic.
A little char initially, it's deliciously medium bodied. There's some punch here but it's with padded gloves. I'm captivated by the herby and savoury feels. That wonderful texture brings a calmness to it. I'm loving the width and that persistent length too. They just call you back time and time again. Blue fruits, dark berries and baking like spices all mesh together with ease. Silty tannins slide through but there's no escaping the soft, silky mouthfeel. Fabulous drinking. No one loses here.
Drink to eight years+
