Yalumba Shiraz-Viognier the Y Series Australie Barossa Valley Vin Rouge Mourvèdre Shiraz Viognier 2006
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.

Purple-red in the glass. This wine has an aromatic nose with berries, vanilla, pepper, wood, and other spices that I couldn't quite single out. The palate has lush fruit with dark fruit and berry nuances. Somewhat full body with a soft, supple texture which is probably due in part to the viognier in the blend. The structure of this wine shows fine tannins with bold acidity. Overall, this is a pretty decent wine and at less than $10 it has a good quality to price ratio.
Very interesting take on the Shiraz/Viognier trend - a little drier than many of the others, with a hint of dark chocolate and tobacco on the palate. Bargain price.

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.
