    Winemaker's Notes:

    The concept of blending Shiraz and Viognier is not new. It is derived from the great French wine region of Northern Rhone, in particular, the Côte Rôtie area. Côte Rôtie has often been described as one of France's finest and most perfumed red wines.

    Yalumba is excited to release this magical wine. Using only the best Barossa fruit, the Yalumba Hand Picked Shiraz Viognier is both unique in style and rich in concentrated fruit flavour.

    This Shiraz Viognier wine is full depth red in colour with purple hues, and shows violet, wild berry and dark cherry aromas, meaty and spicy with black pepper hints. The palate is medium- to full-bodied with beautifully defined fruit, juicy right in the middle with a long, intense and elegant palate with black espresso-like tannins to finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep colour; fragrant and savoury red fruit and violet bouquet, showing some peppery complexity; medium bodied and generously fruited, the mineral, savoury underpinning provides freshness and length on the finish.

    If you like Cabenet Sauvignin style wines then you will love this. The peppery spicyness of the tanins hit you first but somehow it has a almost velvety smooth finish.
