Wild Duck Creek Estate Yellow Hammer Hill 2011

The Yellow Hammer Vineyard is situated near the Alan's Cabernet Vineyard but with the vines only being planted in the last 20 years. The wine is made in a fruit driven bistro style whcih means that it drinks well from the get go.

While this wine is from a cooler wetter year there is so much power going on it is scary. The oak and the spicy fruit is already intergrated well with a medium to full bodiedframe and nice mintiness on the back end. If pushed I would say the weight of the wine is just under full bodied with a dirtiness running along the spine of the wine. The Malbec is leading the way with the Shiraz adding a confortable feeling and nice palate weight. Drink now or later it doesn't really matter.
