Cake Wines YWMS Shiraz 2011

It was the second time of tasting this wine for me. Opens with a natural-ish feel: open, vibrant, with dark brambly fruit betwixt a touch of hedgerow. In fact , it actually smells a little cakey - my term for the skins and such that's left behind after pressing off post-fermentation.

Medium bodied, nicely textured - silken and threaded with powdery tannin, segueing to a finish of good length, earthen spice and a touch of licorice. 89

Tasted on: Monday 23rd December, a Fruit Day
