Yalumba Steeple Vineyard Shiraz 2016
The Steeple Shiraz 2016 showcases the aromatic beauty of this vintage. The nose is immersed in blueberries and plums leading into very inviting red spices, cranberries and pomegranate. Medium to full-bodied, it is generous with plump fruits and dark cherries. Textural, intriguing and velvety smooth. Pair with slow roast lamb with cinnamon, fennel and citrus or wild mushroom rag and creamy polenta. A biodynamically farmed plot in Light Pass, planted in 1919. This has very attractive fruit presence of purple-berry, plum and blackberry aromas, as well as fresh, toasty oak spice and chocolate. The palate has a smooth red-fruit core with a very soft, supple and fleshy delivery of fine, long and supple tannin. Really pure and expressive. Drink or hold.
