Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2019

An exotic Turkish delight twist on Australia’s favorite grape variety, The Y Series Shiraz Viognier is an unusual – yet classic – blend of Shiraz and Viognier that’s sure to intrigue the curious palate. 


Reflecting on our past, the horse on the label symbolizes tradition when they were the transport and tractor of Yalumba.
 

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 fruit for the Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier is sourced from our excellent resource of Shiraz and Viognier vineyards throughout South Australia.

Wine Production

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.

Tasting Notes

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.

Food Pairing

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