RKS 2023 Wine: Yalumba Organic Shiraz

Yalumba makes an impeccable organic Viognier. Can they repeat that with their organic Shiraz?

Aroma: Full of rich black fruit particularly blackberries and black plums.

Palate: Initially the tannins present themselves as softies but increase, not greatly, in intensity. Blackberries, blueberries with a licorice twist. Considering the wine is from South Australia one might categorize it as a light Shiraz with character and depth. Moderately long finish.

Personality: South Australian red wine normally has some real heft but I can show you a lighter side if you would let me.

Food Match: Mushroom Picatta.

Cellarbility: Best before 2025. 

Price: $17.25 (Ontario).

RKS 2023 Wine Rating: 89/100. Sam Kim 91.
