Yalumba Hand Picked Shiraz Viognier 2009
Product Details

 

Shiraz + Viognier

In the making of this wine from the 2006 vintage we began to utilise 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 Vigonier wine is full depth red in colour with purple hues, and shows briar and violets, mocha coffee, cedar, anise and a subtle Viognier fragrance. The palate is medium to full-bodied, and has a spicy and savoury texture which finishes with seamless powdery tannins.
