Dark and spicy with an almost camphor-like aspect to the black pepper top note to the blueberry and blackberry fruit. Air brings out the classic apricot and floral aromas of Viognier which are sweet and well-integrated here. This is a little tight on entry but shows fine balance with an early rush of blueberry and blackberry fruit followed by layered toasty oak, vanilla and spice flavors that are obvious if subtle. The wine broadens in the mouth towards the back end, revealing a lovely sweet edge to the stone fruit flavors, reminds me of plum ice cream a little bit. The finish tightens up once again with a hint of noticeable wood tannin and a little heat as well as the lovely parting aromatics of Viognier. This is lovely, balanced, fresh and with some nice nuances in a New World package. 88pts

Love this wine! It's one of my favourite's, a wonderful balance of fruit and body weight and a versatile food wine. Not to mention brilliant value for money!

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
