Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) The grapes for Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz 2013 are sourced from Barossa vineyard sites that showcase important variations in age, micro-climates and soil types. All of these variations contribute to the diversity of flavours that Barossa Shiraz can exhibit. A combination of small and medium size static fermenters were used, with a fermentation cycle of between eight and 12 days. The wild yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate fermentation. The majority of parcels were then pressed and run to barrel. The result is wine with excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity.
