Yelland & Papps 'Devote' Greenock Shiraz 2014

Rich, ripe, toasty oak - tastes American at that, with prominent coconut. Black fruit is very prominent: blackcurrant, black cherry.

It's toward the lighter end of where you'd expect Barossan Shiraz. Tastes light, vibrant and juicy - good to see Shiraz at 13.3%. Vibrant, touch of cranberry juice acidity. 

Good length, fresh and bracing, some toastiness augments this. 91
