Yering Station Carr Vineyard Shiraz 2021
20% whole bunch inclusion matured for 15 months in luncheons and barriques of which 15% were new with vine source material around 22 years old. Blackberry, juniper and warm kalamata olive loaf bread. Prune plums, beetroot relish and clove studs. Old fashioned pencil tin, thyme and coal dust. The wine twists and turns, writhing on the palate with fine tannins, juicy acidity and coils of black fruited flavour. Equally a mix of ripe fruit, spice and earthy undergrowth of inorganic compounds. Such a structurally sound wine that is built for ageing gracefully. Drink now or will cellar for over 5 years. This would look splendid with Mediterranean baked fish, tomatoes, olives and woody herbs.
