Nice deep garnett and brick color. Aromas of leather, smoke, tobacco, plum, and blueberry. Good shiraz flavors of mint, black pepper, and plum. Not bad for the price.

Y Series Shiraz & Viognier 2008 - Yalumba : Y Series Shiraz / Viognier 2008 - Rotwein von YalumbaEin 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 der Y Series Shiraz & Viognier 2008 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: YalumbaLand: AustralienAnbauregion: Eden ValleyRebsorte: Shiraz, ViognierInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,25 g/lRestsüße: trockenFassreife: in Barriques gereift (9 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 °CLagerfähigkeit: 3-5 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Australien > Eden Valley

The partnering of Shiraz and Viognier is a proven synergy, expressing the complexity of Shiraz with the aromatics and subtlety of Viognier. Bright and youthful, this wine is deliciously spicy, savoury and silky.


Winemaker's Notes:

In an era when consolidation seems an unstoppable force and Australian wine is becoming ever more corporate, Yalumba’s steadfast independence as Australia’s oldest family-owned winery is to be applauded. Robert Hill Smith is the fifth generation in charge since the winery’s foundation in 1849, and he manages a company that boasts independence not just of ownership, but also in many aspects of production. For example, Yalumba has its own nursery and cooperage, so all the vines and barrels used are guaranteed to be of top quality. The grapes for this blend were sourced from various vineyard regions within dryland South Australia. The Shiraz and Viognier grapes were co-fermented in both large static potters and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation and an average of three to five days post-ferment maceration have aided in extracting soft fleshy tannins and building palate structure. This wine is deep purple red in colour with the nose showing initial aromas of violets and sweet berry fruits, mixed with the subtle fragrance of apricot and musk. The palate is stylish and approachable, showing sweet berry mid-palate fruits with a soft even texture and fine finish.
