2018 Yalumba Paradox Shiraz
Matured for 15 months in a combination of new and older French oak. Midnight black in colour with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Captivating aromatics of blackberry, liquorice, dark plum and dark chocolate fill the olfactory senses followed by lightly dusted vanillin cedar and spicy pepper notes. Rich blackberry, liquorice and dark chocolate flavours make a silky entry onto the palate with toasty vanillin oak, subtle earth and spice the back drop. Velvet smooth tannins showing excellent power right through to the long seductive finish that shows a refined opulence.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
