More info

The Yard Shiraz comes from the relatively cool climate of Frankland River some 100 kilometres east of Margaret River. When I first tasted this wine I made notes that on re-reading them sounded like I had seen a Bandol and not and Aussie Shiraz. I listed earthiness, rose petals, Turkish Delight, dark, sooty fruit, but lightness and freshness on the tannins. This style of cool climate Shiraz appeals greatly to my palate. ‘Light’ doesn’t need to mean dilute or frail. In this instance it simply refers to the ‘weight’ of the wine, which in turn has nothing whatsoever to do with its intensity. This is, my goodness me, an intensely fruit-driven wine with an inky colour, but in all other respects it is nimble, refreshing, melodic and charming. Larry has two important whites in his operation, both of whom have appeared in 100 Best Lists of old and both of whom have immensely loyal followers. So, for those of you in the know, 2014 Margaret River Chardonnay is a slightly more billowy and invigorating Chardonnay than last year’s bosomy 2013 and 2015 Pemberton Sauvignon Blanc is awesome with discreet but firm oak embroidered into the core of this super-classy Sauvignon. Larry is a genuine master of all trades and jack of none.

Producer - Larry Cherubino

Beautiful ruby red wine with a combination of spice, black fruits and oaky earthiness, make this a very complex and interesting Shiraz. Blueberry, black cherry and earthy notes carry across to the palate. Still young and ripe, the tannins are soft with good persistence and length, will mature well.
Serving Suggestion

Roasted rack of lamb with chickpea and feta salad.
