Yelland & Papps Devote Shiraz 2009

From a single vineyard in Greenock, towards the North-East of the Barossa Valley, comes this Shiraz of easy-going drinkability and charm.  The aromatic profile shows a black fruited introduction supported by spicier notes of clove along with muscovado sugar and vanilla.

It's in the mouth where it works a treat.  Smooth, rich and rounded, rather fullsome and voluptuous.  There's not so much definition here compared to the Divine Shiraz.  The finish has an essence like quality, fruit flowing smoothly with spice coating the mouth.  90 - Good
