    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 vintage was an excellent year for red wines in South Australia. Good rainfall was recorded during July and August 2008, proving invaluable as the following spring and early summer were extremely dry. A good rainfall in December was critical for the survival of the vineyards during the heat of late January and early February. The Shiraz vines weathered the heat well and were able to ripen in ideal conditions throughout February and March.

    A deep crimson with violet hues, the Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2009 has an exotic nose with crushed raspberries, violets and Turkish delight, complemented by cinnamon, tea smoke and nuances of allspice. Succulent and layered, the palate has flavours of raspberries and violets. Cocoa powder tannins balance the juiciness of the palate and enhance the lingering finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A lovely lilting mouthful of blackberry and floral flavors persist easily into the long, refined finish. A smooth and vibrant wine. Drink now through 2015.

    Voignier adds an otherwordly floral peach characer to this shiraz, bright with red-, blue- and green-skinned fruit. It doesn't take itself too seriously, but it's sleek and delicious in any case. And it's a steal at the price.

    This is the first time I've tried this blend. It's a light red with distinct pepper notes. My husband and I really enjoyed it with our steak dinner.

    The finish is definitely blueberries....pair this with game bird but it's not too light for other milder game meats. Not your typical wine for this price - great value.

    I purchased 2 bottles and both were terrible. I have had this wine before and it was great. I also am a fan of Yalumba but these two bottles both were bed. I would say corked but they use metal screw closures.
