2014 Yalumba Paradox Shiraz

Superlative quality and completely underpriced!

FWDC 94/100

Description

As the name suggests, the Paradox Shiraz is not as high octane, full on, in your face and intense as one would normally expect from Barossa. The northern reaches of Barossa are home to some of the oldest soils in Australia, and the climate is marginally cooler. This allows for a wine of elegance and grace to be produced, with a finesse not otherwise normally seen. Fine french oak, and outstanding quality fruit combine to create a wine that would consistently rank alongside much more expensive Shiraz.

Smells

Alluring aromas of raspberry, chocolate, leather and tobacco, with a hint of eucalyptus leaf. Each time you lean in, something new jumps out at you. Gorgeous.

Tastes

Full bodied, with ripe dark plum, blackberry, and dark chocolate. The French oak adds layers of toast, char, and spice. The tannin is incredibly fine, and integrates within the wine seamlessly. The finish goes on for an incredibly long time. An outstanding wine that is drinking superbly now, but feel free to cellar until 2025-2027.
