Yalumba Barossa Patchwork Shiraz 14%, 750ml
This wine opens with lush and juicy dark cherry, licorice spice and wild flower notes that lead into a brambly herbal savour with smoky earth tones.
On the palate a satin textured dark mulberry and plum fruit appears with a succulent jazzy acidity lifting the gravelly fruit.
A ferrous minerality runs through the palate leaving it savoury and moorish.
Cellar: Great now, but will reward at least a further 3 - 5 years in the cellar.
Food: Open while the lamb is in the oven, and have a second bottle on hand.
