Pertaringa Yeoman Shiraz 2019
Again, a wine under cork, and with a similar oak treatment to the Tipsy Hill, this is another wine from the Bec Hardy stable only made when the conditions demand. This is elite stuff. Opaque maroon, it oozes delicious black cherries, mocha notes, cocoa powder, plums, cloves, black fruits and chocolate. Well crafted, this offers excellent length. Tight and yet expressive; focused and yet generous. The tannins are very fine but seem endless with good balance throughout. This is a big, rich, ripe chocolate bomb and is seriously lovely with a decade to fifteen years ahead of it. Tossed up about the score and whether it deserved a touch higher. Left it here as I am sure that the wine will speak for itself and be worth an even higher score, and more, in a few years. Like the wine itself, there is no rush. Great stuff.
