Natalie's Score: 93/100
Shiraz from the Barossa Valley shines, and here is a prime example. With 160 years of Barossa heritage, Yalumba shows exactly what Barossa terroir is capable of. The winery creates this wine from a "patchwork quilt" of soils, aspects, microclimates and cultures, thus the name. The winery has selected specific parts of its cool-climate vineyard in the Eden Valley for this "patchwork" blend of Shiraz. It marries these with some warm plots in the Barossa Valley to create a remarkable wine. A rich, full-bodied, supple Australian red wine with attractive aromas of black plum, blackberries and black raspberries. Incredible concentration and depth with a long finish. Yalumba is synonymous with Australia wine, particularly Shiraz. Seductive notes of cedar smoke on the finish. Great for dinner parties. Excellent price for the taste and quality.
Shiraz food pairings: steak, lamb, pork, cheese, chicken.

|CarrieMac @sudburyvino rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A full bodied "purple" wine filled with plush aromas and succulent flavors of black fruit, vanilla and spice. Mouth filling, balanced tannins and a smoky finish. Absolutely perfect with garlic-tamarind beef. This would be awesome with pulled pork or sticky beefy ribs as well. Cannot wait to try the next vintage.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Mild aromatics with dark berries and spice, followed by a bolder palate that reveals cassis , raspberries, allspice, pepper, smoke and oak. Full-bodied with great acidity and a smokey finish.
Tasted Oct. 2016
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Surprisingly not too many aromas brimming out of the glass - subtle earthiness, cherry, blackberry, plum - the palate yields a full bodied wine with lots of jam, oak and hearty acidity.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Notes of blackberry, plum and chocolate with some oak and spice flavors appearing on the palate.

The Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz 2013 is medium to full bodied. Aromas and flavours of dark berry fruit, plum, oak and spice. Tasted October 2016 (88/100)
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Opaque purple with aromas of black plum, salt and minerality, India ink, and dried herbs. The taste is rich and supple, centred around plum with a touch of dark chocolate. Medium-low fine tannins with a nice structure and medium acidity.
