|Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Rich, full and earthy, this Shiraz from the Barossa Valley really delivered the goods with the grilled foods that were served. The hint of cedar and soft tannins made for a beautiful finish. I will definitely buy this wine again.

With 160 years of Barossa heritage Yalumba continues to champion Australia's most celebrated wine region and variety with its Patchwork Shiraz sourced from several high quality yet vastly different Barossa vineyards.
The opportunity to craft a single wine of individuality and personality from a ‘patchwork quilt’ of soils, aspects, microclimates and cultures is simply too good to refuse. Through rigorous site selection, our winemakers unearth power, elegance, spice and structure – all the elements required to produce outstanding Barossa Shiraz.
The 2010 growing season began well enough with good periods of winter and spring rainfall, combined with periods of warm to hot spring weather. Unfortunately very windy conditions prevailed during the flowering period, which affected the Shiraz berry formation and subsequently caused low crops to be set. However, as the vines had grown sound healthy canopies, the low crops that remained managed to ripen to full flavour ripeness, generally some 2 to 3 weeks earlier than normal. Vintage 2010 has produced red wines that are deep in colour, have lifted aromatics and are packed full of flavour.
The Yalumba Barossa Patchwork Shiraz 2010 is dense dark purply red in colour. The aroma exhibits a mix of fresh bright berry compote fruits, dark plums and violets intermingled with a savoury complexity. This is a full-bodied Barossa Shiraz that shows richness, density and concentration. Rich dark jube fruit flavours fill the palate and are balanced with fine acidity and round, earthy tannins.
