Chateau Yaldara Reserve Shiraz 2019


Near black in colour. This is still very much tight and dense at this early stage in its development. It might be providing plenty of joy at the moment, but it really does have a long way to go. The nose offers gorgeous Barossa chocolate, black fruits, violets, leather, coffee beans and spices. There is oak, but such impressive integration. Coiled power here, but expect this to continue to blossom. The palate sees notes more akin to soy, beefstock and herbs, but still with oodles of chocolate. Showing fine tannins and impressive length, this is a lovely Barossa Shiraz, which has much more to offer so ten to fifteen years won’t trouble it at all.
