Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored Shiraz from Yangarra opens with a smoky oak bouquet with hints of match stick and cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black cherry with notes of gentle blackberry. We also detected hints of minerality, black olive and cola. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins linger nicely. The Panel suggest pairing this this Shiraz with homemade meatloaf or a mushroom burger. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This wine is all about texture. The meaty blueberry hint is sometimes like prosciutto or other dark charcuterie meats; the figgy base tones provide a solid base flavour, the cleansing natural acidity working with the tannins to draw the finish out to a delicious taper with a long aftertaste where those cherries evident in the bouquet re-emerge, sinuous and more-ish.
