Yangarra Park Shiraz Mclaren Vale Appellation Series 2006
Yangarra 06 Shiraz MLV - 91 Points!<br/><br/>Our 2006 Shiraz walks the tightrope between finesse and concentration. It has a stylish perfume of lemon pith (unusual for Shiraz), lipstick, raspberries and juniper. The aromas are vibrant and explosive. The palate is concentrated and seductively lush with black fruits, spicy dark chocolate, hints of vanilla bean and soft, grainy tannins.

Not really my style, a big, jammy Australian Shiraz at 15% alc/vol. Initial impression of eucalyptus. Plums, cherry, mint, and eucalyptus on the palate. Some spice in the aftertaste. Not terribly balanced, but definitely rich and dark.
This wine boasts raspberries and juniper with aromas that are vibrant and explosive. The palate is concentrated with black fruits, and a touch of spicy dark chocolate and soft, grainy tannins. It is smooth and very nicely balanced. Rustic dishes, such as lamb with Rosemary, work well with this wine.
Wine World in Seattle has it on the shelf!!!!
A very concentrated wine with great mouthfeel. Strong aromas of cocoa and raspberries on the nose work well with the smokey, mint pallet with undertones of dark chocolate. Nice and soft on tannins and acidity.

Wine Tasting NotesOur vineyard is in the coolest parts of mclaren vale, giving our low yields times to slowly accumulate concentrated powerful flavours of blackberry and plums, with hints of spice. The open fermenters and wild yeast allow maximum extraction and complexity with soft silky tannins.
