Named ‘Darkhorse Winery Of The Year’ for 2021 by James Halliday, the 2018 Yarran Shiraz is a bargain! Made with grapes sourced from Bendigo, Hilltops and Heathcote vineyards. Picked at optimum ripeness to create this rich, full bodied wine. Aged with a combination of French and American oak, this wine is bursting with ripe plum and spicy characters, complimented by wonderfully soft tannins.
The palate is soft-textured, medium-bodied and very appealing as a young, easy-drinking red. Quite modish winemaking and extra-good value – Huon Hooke, The Real Review 2019
Medium-bodied, supple and balanced. 95 Points – James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021
