Yelland and Papps Delight Shiraz 2011

Opens with mocha, a little oak - sees 9% new and 63% old French, 14% new and 14% old American - and good fruit ripeness, a character missing in many reds from 2011.

Full in the mouth, tannin is fine with some good spicy detail - a hint of clove present - if overall it feels a little loose. Some grip through the back end, an extra level of interest. 89 - Good

Tasted on: Sunday 9th June, a Root Day
Source: Sample
Price: $19.95
Alcohol: 13.6%
Closure: Screwcap
