2015 Chateau Yaldara Retro Adelaide Hills Shiraz

I’m a sucker for tradition.  I’m a sucker for nostalgia.  I’m a sucker for a good red wine.  Put all these ‘suckers’ together and I am THAT kid in the candy store.  This wine has everything that took me back a few years (understatement) and it was a pleasure.

It’s a pretty attractive package when you have it in your hands.  A nice tall bottle with a very cool label.  That’s the way to get things started.

The aromas are going to delightfully fill your sinuses so be very mindful of that because you’ll need to move on to the good bit of tasting it.

This is deliciously Adelaide Hills when you drink it.  It’s not full on, more “I would like to get to you know you better” style.  A smooth and sophisticated sort of thing.   Medium bodied, plums, ripe dark cherries, a nice touch of spiciness and it all comes together on a persistent, elegant finish. Yep, it won’t leave you alone in a hurry.
