Yalumba Paradox Shiraz 2019


One of our 'go to' super premium Shiraz instore and at this price, it will soon be gone!

"As you might expect from its name, the Paradox Shiraz is not what you would expect from a wine from the warmest parts of the northern Barossa Valley. It's a softer, more gentle, velvet-like and savoury style of wine."

Deep scarlet red in colour. Rose petals, plum, chocolate and cassis aromas leap from the glass. After some time hints of vanilla cream, olive tapenade and sweet oak spice reveal themselves. The palate is soft and plush with loads of dark cherry, plum, chocolate and espresso coffee that leads to an elegant finish of fine tannins.

"This has a very deep purple colour of great extract. The nose shows the sort of easy complexity of old oak married to ripe shiraz fruit that makes for satisfying drinking. Plum, blackberry, licorice and lead pencil aromas lead into a mellow, satisfying mouthful. Integrated ripe tannins dry the finish. A wine of lovely aromatic presence that doesn't rely on sheer power for its impact." 94/100 Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Real Review (2019 Vintage)
