Yelland & Papps Limited Cuvée Shiraz 2018


Old vine Shiraz shows its class here. Colour is deep and intense. Hearty, ripe blackberry, dark plum fruit aplenty set the scene alongside baked earth, black liquorice, heady spices and chocolate. The palate is dense with solid fruit concentration. A noticeable level of woodsy oak is in play, but overall the power of the fruit manages it well. A spicy thread runs long through the wine, an enticing addition, before finishing with good length. Long, sturdy tannins support the wine, and give the drinker confidence in cellaring further.
