"Plum, mineral and toffee notes mingle with toasted cumin and black tea accents. Thick and chewy on the finish. Appealing for the intensity and long finish. Drink now through 2027. 7,830 cases made. –MW"(WS)

"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Shiraz has a bit of a tarry / rubbery nose to begin, giving way to a baked black cherries and blueberry core with suggestions of cracked pepper and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied, it leads with a chewy structure on the palate with nice savory and spice elements complementing the ripe fruit, finishing long." (WA)

"Dense and layered shiraz with loads of ripe fruit, yet remains vivid and lively. Full body, velvety tannins and a long, savory finish. Drink or hold." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Shiraz from our estate vineyard adopts more of a cooler climate expression than the typical McLaren Vale style. Yangarra Shiraz is concentrated and complex with a heady illusion of sweet, dark fruit. The vineyard’s elevation and cooler climate give rise to blackberry and black plum, savory herbs, spice with chicory and juniper tannins and the faintest whiff of harness leather.
