Chateau Yaldara Eden Valley Shiraz 2020


From a single vineyard in the Eden Valley, this is stunning stuff, having spent time in a mix of French and American oak. Inky maroon hue, this is big and bold and richly flavoured. We have notes of chocolate, mocha, espresso, blueberries, cocoa powder, vanilla and oodles of licorice. The oak integration is exemplary with abundant but very fine and soft tannins. Excellent length, the palate sees cloves and beefstock notes to the fore. Well structured, this is a wine which is delicious now, but will sail through the next decade and more. Lots to love here.
