680News wine reviews – April 4–6, 2014 

Yalumba Organic Shiraz 2012
Restraint and elegance are not adjectives I'd usually employ when describing Australian Shiraz, but this one from Yalumba from South Australia reminded me of a wine from the northern Rhone region of St. Joseph. Yalumba Organic Shiraz 2012 is deep ruby colour with a nose blackberry and blackcurrant tinged with herbs. It's medium-bodied, dry and savoury with licorice and black fruit flavours. It costs $19.95 from Vintages. Match it with steak or winter casseroles. That's Yalumba Organic Shiraz 2012 from Australia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($19.95, Vintages #280883)

Chateau Le Vieux Serestin 2009
As a passionate fan of red Bordeaux I'm always on the look-out for clarets that punch above their weight. And I found on in Chateau Le Vieux Serestin 2009. This medium-bodied, Medoc red from a vaunted vintage has a nose of blackcurrants, newly sharpened pencils and a floral top note. It's full and lush on the palate with juicy blackcurrant fruit, silky tannins and a long finish. It costs $17.95 at Vintages outlets. Perfect for lamb dishes. That's Chateau Le Vieux Serestin 2009 from Bordeaux. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, Vintages #138719)
