Wild Duck Creek Estate Yellow Hammer Hill Shiraz Malbec 2012


Well, this is just a very good wine and at a fair price too.  From Wild Duck Creek Estate in Heathcote, the "Yellow Hammer Hill" is a blend of shiraz and malbec.  It has aromatics of violets, dark cherry and dark plum.  The palate has long length and is very balanced, with some fruit sweetness coming from the dark cherry flavours.  Ready to drink now, this wine is easy to recommend.

Rating: Very Good, Abv: 14.5%, Price: $26, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://www.wildduckcreekestate.com.au, Tasted: 2014
