"The 2013 Ironheart Shiraz is another total beauty from Yangarra. The perfume alone is enough to make you swoon! Laced with violets, molten chocolate, cherry liquor, lavender and exotic spices with subtle incense nuances, it's one of those glasses that compels you to sniff again and again. The palate is very restrained and taut at this youthful stage, with firm, grainy tannins and a lively backbone framing the concentrated fruit, finishing long and minerally. Simply stunning." (WA)

“Sombre, earthy black fruits are so intense they momentarily stop the heart from beating. The texture and mouthfeel are such that they throw down the gauntlet to anyone seeking to drink more than a glass at this early (indeed far too early) stage of its life. The balance is spot on the money, so the long-term future is assured. Screwcap. 14.5% alc. Rating 97 To 2053.” (JH)

Winery Notes:
“The dark Ironheart Shiraz is wound up like a coil, put it in a decanter and let it spring open. As a young wine the typical dark fruit aromas are elusive, but on the palate the power and concentration of the fruit unfolds, with big soft tannins so typical from this site, and the iron-like sanguine finish. A wine made to sustain the years ahead .” - Peter Fraser, winemaker.
