What could be more ‘Divine’ than a Barossa Shiraz that’s been hand- crafted by the likes of Yelland & Papps. Prepare for a big league Barossan red that will enhance your next barbecue, as it’s perfect with red meat. It mixes up dark fruit, coffee, prune, fruitcake and oak before delivering a rich, regional blockbuster of fruitcake intensity with spice, rolling tannins, and divine concentration.
Deep impenetrable dark red/purple in colour with opulent, concentrated aromas of black plum and berry-fruit compote. Hints of black-strap licorice, Barossan earth, dark chocolate, kirsch, beef consommé, soy sauce, deep exotic spices and sweetly judged oak combine to provide a most heady smelling wine.
The palate is where the old-vine fruit comes into its own...mouthfilling with excellent weight and texture in spades. Flavours of rich blackberry, Satsuma plum and kirsch flow across the palate with hints of licorice, clove, five spice, dark cooking chocolate, roast beef and vanillin oak. The intense flavours on the palate create a lush backdrop for the raft of ripe, fine-grained tannins that kick in as the finish carries through with a perfect sense of balance and length. Full-bodied, lushly fruited and proudly Barossa, this is the guy to grab with hearty red meat dishes.
