Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2016

At Yalumba we believe that one good wine leads to another. The Y Series was created with that belief in mind. The Y Series represents a collection of iconic classics and exciting new varietals. Each authentically crafted with fruit from South Australia’s most celebrated wine regions.

About the Vineyard

The Shiraz grapes selected for this wine are those which display the most perfumed and aromatic profile that compliments the fragrance of Viognier. Everything is done to preserve this aroma: cool fermentation, the addition of Viognier (including as many whole berries as possible) and no oak ageing are just some of the processes that go into the making of this wine. These combine to produce a wine that is bright, aromatic and exotic.

Tasting Notes

Luscious aromas of blueberry, vanilla bean and violets.
A medium bodied palate that is framed by flavors of sweet
Turkish delight. Pleasing soft tannins provide a perfect
complement to the dark chocolate finish which shows the
synergy between these two varieties.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with slow roasted Turkish lamb served with potatoes,
yogurt and pomegranate salad or stuffed eggplants.
