Winemaker's Notes:

The Yalumba Barossa Patchwork Shiraz 2010 is dense dark purply red in color. The aroma exhibits a mix of fresh bright berry compote fruits, dark plums and violets intermingled with a savory complexity. This is a full-bodied Barossa Shiraz that shows richness, density and concentration. Rich dark jube fruit flavors fill the palate and are balanced with fine acidity and round, earthy tannins.

Try with pork rib ragu and rigatoni.
