Yalumba Organic Shiraz 2018

South Australia, AustraliaWinemaker Heather Fraser does what I think a lot of woman winemakers do with syrah: they tame the wild edges and expand the palate using deliciousness. At only 13.5 percent, this vibrant organic red is a bargain and fun to drink. The grapes are sourced from four family-owned, organically certified vineyards: the Carypides family vineyard located at Virginia in the Adelaide Plains; the Barich Family Vineyard on the Murray River at Loxton; the Palena Family Vineyards near Barmera in the Riverland; and the Strachan Family Vineyard in McLaren Vale. Expect a bright wine with floral, violet, plummy fruit and soft spice. The winery suggests a Swiss brown mushroom burger with caramelized onions, and I say bring it on.Tasted: 16 March 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 16.99 BCLS AB 20.00 private wine shops MB 16.99 Manitoba Liquor Marts ON 17.95 LCBO QC 16.99 SAQ Producer: Yalumba Wine CompanyDistributors: Negociants International
