Big hearted shiraz

Yangarra Ironheart Shiraz 2014, McLaren Vale, AUD $105

This big, solid shiraz is built for cellaring and demands patience. With a saturated purple/red colour and walnut, bay leaf, dried herb and earth aromas, it’s very full-bodied and almost opulent, dense and bold in the mouth. Licorice and spice flavours and high extract. (Screwcap)
