Yalumba Homefulness Shiraz 2021

A collaborative effort between leading family owned winery Yalumba and housing charity Forage Built.

This Shiraz builds on the success of the Grenache of a year or two back, which to date has seen Yalumba donate $60,000 to the charity. Whilst I never reviewed that wine, I certainly did my bit and enjoyed a few cases as a home staple.

Redolent of Barossa Shiraz: mulberry, cassis, hint of baking spice in the frame.

The palate conveys similar, supplemented with a twist of black licorice - as if to firm things up a little. It adds a bitterness through the finish, culminating in an almost espresso grounds like conclusion. 91
