Wine of the week: 2009 Yangarra Estate Shiraz

Reviewed by Michael McVittieOctober 24, 2013 

The '09 Yangarra Estate Shiraz is not your typical Aussie fruit bomb. It's an ageable, complex red made with love and attention, sourced from the famous McLaren Vale where shiraz can do no wrong. Open one up you'll find out why. The wine is very dark -- almost black. The nose is mineral and menthol with minty blueberry fruits. There's a great aromatic here. The mouth is full and coating, showing lots of blue and black fruits, licorice and mild tannins. In short, a big wine that delivers on cue. Serve with the richest of fare. Costs about $26.
