Yangarra PF Shiraz 2013

This is a wine that will appeal to many, either on the basis of a natural-ish approach to production, the cost-conscious for it delivers very well at its price, or those who just appreciate a bloody good wine for what it offers.

Black fruits primarily (damson/mulberry if you wish me to be specific), that sit in front of a meaty core - think a little fresh salami - giving the wine a delightful sweet/ savoury combination from the off.

Medium bodied, on the palate it offers up much to please. A modicum of spice, a little skin tannin and plenty of juicy 'yes' factor. The thing about it really is balance, everything works in conjunction with each other, nothing dominating - and possesses winemaker Peter Fraser's calling card: it's just damn moreish.
