084-yakka-shirazWay back in episode 21 of our podcast, we tasted the Longview 2010 Yakka Shiraz to commemorate the passing of the vineyard’s founder, Duncan MacGilvray who had died in that week in January 2014 while on holiday with his family in Bali.

Here’s what we said then:

For just under $25, Yakka delivers a smooth, spicy Shiraz that would be the envy of winemakers everywhere. There is everything to like about this wine and Steve Davis has bought remaining stocks from two local bottle shops as testament to how much it has impressed him.

So what has changed with the 2012?


As you listen to our tasting in episode 84, you will see the same descriptors coming to the fore and that is WITHOUT us going back and cheating.

This wine is still smooth, moreish and of an inky consistency that seeps into your palate.

Now, to win a bottle, just listen to our tasting before midnight and use the special codeword to go into the draw – full details below.

The wine tasting starts about 6 minutes in.

Win a bottle of this wine

67-enomatic-arkabaThe Arkaba Hotel has partnered with us so that it can let our fellow wine lovers know you can safely order wine by the glass through their Enomatic System. So, instead of getting a tired glass of wine from a bottle that was opened days ago, which is a dreadful experience for serious wine drinkers, at the Arkaba they can guarantee freshness just like the winemaker intended.

To be in the draw to win this week’s wine, you only have TWO things to do:

1. Make sure you’re on our In Crowd mailing list. This little email gets sent every Friday morning with details about the week’s show. You can sign up here and once you’ve signed up you’ll be qualified to play any of our competitions for life.

2. Mention the term Yakka on our Facebook Page, or in a tweet to @TheAdelaideShow, or just email us using that term to [email protected]. Pick whichever one works best for you but do it BEFORE 11.59pm, Sunday, April 5, 2015, South Australian time of course, and on Monday we will email the winner with details of how they can collect their wine from The Arkaba.
