Karra Yerta Wines Barossa Valley Shiraz 2005, SA

$35. Even more appealing than the 2004 version, this spent an extended time in oak – 28 months in American and French oak. Made with the assistance of Peter Schell of Spinifex (another one of my favourites), this is black-purple in colour and exudes aromas of crushed dark berries and a hint of freshly motared cocao beans. A smooth and elegant drink, mid-weight, well-balanced tannins, dark fruit flavours sit on the palate so lightly and has a fleshy feel. Drink over the next 7 years. 93/100. Tasted May 2008
