2018 Yeringberg Yarra Valley Shiraz

6 x 750ml
Such an elegantly spicy style of cooler-climate shiraz, this has aromas of fine white pepper and hard brown spices, across red plums, raspberries and blackcurrants. The palate is so fresh, long and fine with a really elegant, silky feel and such seamless length. Red plums and blueberries, as well as some darker fruit. Fresh finish. Try from 2023. Screw cap.

Generous, with terrific focus and purity to the kirsch, wild berry and plush apricot notes. Aromatic details of Earl Grey tea, rosemary and black pepper and plush, velvety tannins give this an air of elegance and persistence on the finish. Drink now through 2035. 50 cases imported.

Jane Faulkner - Halliday's Wine Companion

Lots of dark fruits at play here, with some florals and spice of the earthy persuasion: licorice, cinnamon and menthol. A luscious, rich palate, fuller bodied with stretchy tannins. More a drink-now option.

Tasting Notes

Subtle, savoury and deep set, the 2018 Shiraz offers aromas of blueberry, black pepper and dark cherry, building weight and presence as it unfurls, with complex notes of bay, thyme, salumi and liquorice. At the same time, there’s a freshness that wraps itself around the core of deep fruit, giving real lift and vibrancy to the perfume. The palate is immediately bright and energetic, with weight and richness too, savoury, subtle yet deeply concentrated, tightly wound and finely structured. Tasted over a couple of weeks, this is a wine that just keeps on evolving, so while it’s wonderful now, we’re equally confident it’ll provide drinking pleasure for many years to come. – Sandra de Pury
