Yalumba Hand Picked Shiraz Viognier 2008
Product Details

 

Shiraz + Viognier

From the 2006 vintage of the Hand Picked Shiraz Viognier, we began using the skins only of the Viognier grapes in addition to the traditional method of co-fermenting select parcels of both Shiraz and Viognier grapes together. The skins on their own can often provide even more powerful aroma and texture, and this helps create another dimension of flavour and complexity to this wine. This Shiraz Viognier wine is full depth red in colour with purple hues, and shows violet, wild berry and dark cherry aromas, meaty and spicy with black pepper hints. The palate is medium- to full-bodied with beautifully defined fruit, juicy right in the middle with a long, intense and elegant palate with black espresso-like tannins to finish.
