World Wine – Deep garnet-purple coloured, the 2016 Yakka Shiraz has a very pretty perfume of kirsch, red currant jelly and red plums preserves with hints of lavender, sandalwood and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied with an elegantly styled, understated palate, it has effortless grace with red berry preserves and spice notes supported by velvety tannins and finishing harmoniously.
About This Wine
The 2017 Yakka Shiraz is dark purple in colour, with aromas of black cherries and baking spices exhibiting flavours of dark chocolate and coffee. It has toasty, vanillan oak characters, perfectly balanced tannin and a long clean finish. Excellent to drink now and will benefit with 10+ years cellaring.
The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. Because of this, many different varietals are planted here with the most dominant being Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. It is generally thought of as a cooler region, especially when compared to neighbouring Barossa to the north and Mclaren vale and Langhorne Creek to the south.
NZ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been popular in Australia for a while now, but Adelaide hills Sauvignon Blanc (the most planted grape in the region) could be considered the Aussie Savvy Blanc. From www.adelaidehillswine.com.au about their Sauvignon Blanc: “Wines that are textured, edgy, vibrant and dry with exceptional fruit definition, length and crispness that marry superbly with summer seafood.”
You can also find some cool climate shiraz from the Adelaide hills, defying the more common big bold style that is usually seen in Australian Shiraz.
