Nice fennel and mint nose with some chocolate tones as well. Its got a sweetness to the nose thats nice as well. Its a fragrant, light syrah - light earthiness, but generally very aromatic, fragrant and fruity. A very juicy wine. Some licorice on the finish, but the viognier counteracts it well.

    Very disappointed in this. I love Yalumba Viognier and thought I would like this, as I like Shiraz as well. This was awkward and spicy, not in a good way. Couldn't finish the glass.

    A decent buy, but not as big as I'd like.

    This is a really nice alternative to that big, brooding style of Shiraz. Fresh, red berries, and the Viognier adds a lovely lift, brightness and floral aromas - which I find quite pretty. I enjoyed this a lot over the summer.

    very surprising and interesting blend of Shiraz and Viognier. Has a lot of pepper and raspberry. Drinkable - works with spicy food. I liked it and will buy more at this price <$10

    oh come on solomania9, you pair a big red wine with sushi, and you blame the wine? I'm afraid that was your fault. Also, after a brief decanting, all bitterness turns into a beautifully balanced wine.

    Nice floral nose. Sour cherries, tar, leather on the taste. Medium body and not overly long.

    Aromas of blackberry and flowers. Juicy berry flavors with hints of tobacco and violets. Soft and approachable. The perfect red to entertain a group with a wide range of tastes.

    Yalumba Y Series Shiraz & Viognier 2007: Ein undurchdringliches Purpurrot funkelt im Glas. Die Nase wird von einem betörenden Bukett erfreut, welches an reife, süße Beeren erinnert. Das facettenreiche Aromenspiel wird um Gewürznelken und Anis erweitert. Am Gaumen dominieren dann reife Pflaumen, Lakritz und Pfeffer. Mit seinem saftigen, aber auch würzigen Geschmack begeistert er im Mund und präsentiert einen mittelkräftigen Körper mit einer gut eingebundenen frische Säure. Das Finale ist schön fruchtig und mit einem warmen Nachhall.Besonders delikat ist er zu Filetspitzen mit Champignons oder Entenkeule mit Schattenmorellensauce.Weingut: YalumbaAnbauregion: Eden ValleyRebsorte: Shiraz, ViognierInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,3 g/lRestsüße: trockenFassreife: in Barriques gereift (9 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 °CLagerfähigkeit: 3-5 Jahre ab JahrgangAuszeichnungen:4,5 Platter StarsVeritas SilberMichelangelo GoldMundus Vini Gold Rotwein > Australien > Eden Valley


    Winemaker's Notes:

    A combination of small (8 tonne) and large (30 tonne) fermenters have been used with a fermentation cycle of 8 to 12 days. Select parcels were fermented with a percentage of Viognier grapes, whilst other parcels were fermented with Viognier juice. This has produced a soft and stylish wine showing subtle Viognier aromatics combined with the medium weight and structure of Shiraz. This wine is deep purpley red in colour, displaying an aroma of sweet fragrant plums and bright red-berried fruits along with a fine cedar tone and just the subtle floral notes of Viognier. A medium to full bodied wine, showing red fruits, fine spices, cloves and peppers. This is a rich, but not an overpowering Shiraz with the subtle sweet textures of Viognier. Great now, but will also reward 5-7 years in the cellar. Match with butterfly pork chops with creamy mash potatoes.
