Yalumba Organic Shiraz 2009 [South Australia]
"Apart from producing outstanding wines, family-owned and run Yalumba is committed to clonal diversity, promoting varieties suited to Aussie conditions and environmental issues. For this shiraz, it sources fruit from two South Australian vineyards – Loxton and McLaren Vale – both certified organic for the past 10 years. It is simple yet vibrant, loaded with spice and bright-red fruit. Medium-bodied with plush-ness from ripe tannins, it has plenty of cleansing acidity to cut through meat such as steak or pork chops. Made very much as a drink-now shiraz."
