Paradox: A person or thing made up of contradictory elements.
Made as a slightly different style for the Barossa, as Yalumba say. The Paradox is not what you might expect from a wine from the northern Barossa. It’s not the high octane, lots of new oak stereotypical northern Barossa Shiraz, but rather a softer, more gentle velvet-like and savoury style of wine.​​ It's a style that seems to suit the Kiwi palate perfectly and over the past few vintages, this has been one of our top selling Shiraz. There is a great combination between the sweet plummy Barossan Shiraz fruit and the brooding savoury, meaty flavours. Plush and warming on the palate. This is seriously sexy!
Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"The warm and dry January and February was suddenly halted by 100mm of rain in 24 hours, followed by moderate temperatures that caused ripening to slow down. The resultant long ripening period helped to deliver strong varietal flavours. Made with little intervention, the 2014 Paradox used small parcels of grapes fermented with wild yeast in 30hL French open top oak vats. The ferment naturally gets warm, allowing the fruit flavours and textures to express themselves, while the tannin extraction is minimal. Natural malolactic fermentation occurs in oak, the majority of which is old and larger format puncheons.

An inky crimson wine with complex aromas full of mixed spice and crushed black pepper, violets, fennel and hints of blueberries. The palate is lush with layers of velvet, great structure and flavours reminiscent of Satsuma plums, olives, black pepper and anise. The wine finishes savoury and is driven by fine powdery tannins."
