Yangarra Vineyard Estate Shiraz, McLaren Vale 2013 $28
The colour is very deep and dark; the aromas recalling chocolate, mocha and espresso coffee. It’s very concentrated, dense and deeply flavoured, with lashings of skin tannins. Big and bold but thankfully not oaky. A thoroughly lovely red wine. (Screw cap; 14.5 per cent alcohol.) Score: 92 ★★★★ – view on huonhooke.com
Ageing? Best at two to 17 years.
Food idea: Rare roast beef with Yorkshire pudding.
Stockists: Best Cellars (NSW); City Wine Shop (Vic.)
