Yalumba Shiraz Blend Y Series Shiraz/Viognier 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep crimson purple in colour, the 2010 Y Series Shiraz Viognier has aromas that are both wild and exotic. Blueberries, violets and cherry ripe notes from the Shiraz are elevated by the subtle influence of Viognier, which brings an alluring Turkish delight character. The well rounded palate is medium to full bodied and shows Turkish delight and cherry ripe flavours that are in harmony with the silky tannins.

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch "Yalumba" – aboriginal for "all the land around". Six generations and more than 150 years later Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over. Yalumba wines have a style all of their own and each have been influenced by a diverse range of elements. Elements Yalumba likes to call 'the controllables', such as the Yalumba Vine Nursery and on-site cooperage – as well as other factors that cannot be emulated by any other winery. Yalumba’s history and tradition combined with a reputation for innovation.

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.

Deep crimson with violet hues, the Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier displays aromas of crushed mulberries, wild berry and rhubarb which are complemented by hints of sweet cinnamon and violets. This wine is medium bodied with layers of wild berries and violets, while the tannins are soft which give the wine a juicy sweetness and persistence.
