Toolangi Shiraz 2015
Made from hand-harvested estate fruit (predominantly from Toolangi's lower lying parcels), the 2015 Shiraz was crafted at Yering Station. Fermented on natural yeasts with a portion of whole bunches, the wine was matured in a mix of new and used French barriques for 11 months. The result is a fragrant, lively wine, with juicy blackberry fruit complexed by lifted floral and spice notes and a tangy close. A fine year for Yarra Valley Shiraz, and another bargain from this producer which sets a new bar for this producer's lithe and peppery Rhône-influenced Shiraz.
James Halliday – Estate-grown, made at Yering Station, matured in French oak for 11 months. This is quite an entry point shiraz, the bouquet immediately grabbing attention with its black fruits, pepper, licorice, spice and cedary oak, every bit of which comes through in 3D on the medium-bodied palate. The line, length and balance are perfect.
