4.5 STARS | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
The Vegan Wine Project is a new venture by the Yalumba empire. They wanted to take the winemaking process back to the basics and ended up creating a vegan range packed with flavour and texture. This South Australian Shiraz is packed with all of the classic dark berry flavours and rounded out by soft, silky tannins. There's a lot to like here. Climb in.
The winery writes "Dark purple in colour with red hues. Enticingly fresh plums, raspberries and subtle vanilla oak with hints of violets and floral aromas. The generous silky palate has wild berries and plum fruit flavours, complemented by soft, supple tannins with hints of chocolate and warm, exotic spices. Bright fruit flavours linger during the long succulent finish."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "No mistaking the variety here with aromas of dark berries and black currant, a peppery, brown sugar and sweet ripe fruit core. On the palate - a dry wine with flavours of dark berries and toasted wood flavours, fine easy tannins and medium+ acidity. Classic style with a balanced, even and lengthy finish. Well made and ready to enjoy from today and through 2023."
Sam Kim writes "Friendly and approachable, showing dark plum, anise, bay leaf and floral aromas on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that's smooth and lingering. It's gentle and mellow with attractive fruit flavours, finishing silky and tasty."
