Attractive complex nose of cured meats, vanilla, blueberries and cherries laced with a whiff of white pepper. Nose leads you into thinking of a full bodied wine but in fact it is medium bodied, elegant with fine tannins producing a supple velvet wine. Flavours consist of red and black berry fruits with hints of licorice and chocolate. Long, slightly tannic finish. An accomplished wine. Co-fermented with 3% Viognier. This wine is a blend of three fermentation techniques, whole berry, whole bunch and destemmed. 18 months in oak of which 35% is new.
Yeringberg Shiraz 2019, Yarra Valley, Vic
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
