About the Vineyard
The fruit for the Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier is sourced from our excellent resource of Shiraz and Viognier vineyards throughout South Australia.
The Shiraz grapes selected for this wine are those that display the most perfumed aromatic profile that compliments the fragrance of Viognier. Everything is done to preserve this aroma: cool fermentation, addition of Viognier, including as many whole berries as possible and no oak ageing are just some of the thought processes that go into the making of this wine. These combine to give a wine that is bright, aromatic and exotic.
A bright crimson wine with a luscious and exotic aroma of raspberries, sour cherries, Turkish delight, and hints of white pepper. The medium bodied palate is framed by flavors of sweet Turkish delight, cherries and boysenberry. Pleasing soft tannins provide a perfect complement to the cherry ripe finish which shows the synergy between these two varieties.
Enjoy with slow roasted Turkish lamb served with potatoes, yogurt and pomegranate salad or stuffed eggplants.
