Yangarra Estate Shiraz 2018
I remember tasting samples of this from barrel with Peter Fraser back in April, 2018. It looked fabulous then in its infancy and it is even better now. An incredible wine for the asking price.
Blue fruits come in spades. Coming off Yangarra's certified biodynamic and organic vineyards, it's a wine with wonderful and engaging depth. Those berry flavours get in deep, a result of 50% whole berries used with approximately 20% whole bunches.
Violet and purple flower perfume diffuse elegantly from the glass. A little bit ferrous and a little bit minerally, white pepper and earthy feels add interest. There's no chance of evading the generous fruit mind you. It pulsates in gentle waves. Fine tannins draw a long bow and persist much longer than expected finishing dusty and powdery. Utterly delicious!
Drink to ten years+
