Yering Station Shiraz Blend Yarra Valley Shiraz Viognier 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards situated in the cooler climate areas of the Yarra valley, not too far from Melbourne. The addition of 5% Viogner to the Shiraz adds an element of opulent aromatic character to the nose and softens the palate, a technique used traditionally in the Cote Rotie area of the Northern Rhone. The wine is deep garnet in colour with a complex and powerful nose, it has aromas of ripe berries, complex violet, liquorice and spice with a tarry oak complexity. The palate is full and rich with liquorice and floral flavours. Well balanced with soft ripe tannins and a silky, long and clean finish. Easy to match with a variety of dishes, from grilled or roasted white meats to pan fried, roasted or barbecued red meats, pasta dishes and cheese.
