Tasting Notes

Colour
Dark Red
Nose
Intoxicating mix of black berry fruit and Peruvian spices. Subtle yet intriguing lift of rose petal.
Palate
Satsuma plum and dark cherry provide a fruit core. Savoury spice and french oak enhance the richness and complexity. The co-fermentation of Shiraz and Viognier give this cool climate Shiraz a lushness and plump centre. This supported by fine tannins and a velvet like finish provide drinkabiliy and longevity.

Deep red colour with a purple tinge. The bouquet is rich and concentrated, chocolaty and toasty with a lovely array of aromas. These are translated perfectly to the palate, which is full-bodied and fleshy with marvellous depth, texture and balance, concluding with a measured tannin grip. A beautifully turned-out shiraz. RANKED #8 of 53 2016 Shiraz blends from Australia

Yering Station Shiraz Viognier. A favourite of many. Always keen to see where it’s at. Silken. Well-flavoured. Lined with fine-grained tannin. Satisfying to close. There’s your take-home. It’s in fine form. Plum, cherry, creamy vanilla, rounds of sweet spice and cloves. Toast. Oak plays a clear role but as it breathes it all meshes into one. Lovely. Drink : 2018 - 2026
