Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz 2012


Soft fruit, soft tannins are a hallmark for the Patchwork. As a Winter warmer, this delivers generously – just as it would as a Summer entertainer.

It has versatility at its heart and a core of blueberry and plum fruit wrapped in liquorice and cinnamon. There is also some dried herbs thrown in.  Rich, supple with a long chocolatey finish.

Date:  June 2014   Price:  $17+  Value: $$$   Drink:  5 years
