Yalumba ‘Triangle Block’ Eden Valley Shiraz/Viognier 2016

Blended Red from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 05-Jul-2018
Full, even, very dark ruby-red colour with purple hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly presented with tightly bound, slightly slender aromas of dark raspberries and blackberries along with lifted violet florals alongside subtle eucalyptus elements. This has good intensity and concentration. Fullish bodied, the palate is well-proportioned with intense and deeply concentrated flavours of ripe blackberry fruit with notes of violets, pepper and nuances of eucalypt. The flavours form a fine-textured core and the fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin structure and integrated acidity. This has very good linearity and carries to a long and sustained finish. This is an elegant, but intensely flavoured Shiraz/Viognier with blackberry fruit along with floral, pepper and eucalypt notes on a fine, firm, linear palate. Match with roasted lamb, beef and venison over the next 6+ years. Named after Yalumba’s oldest surviving centennial Shiraz vineyard. A blend of Shiraz and Viognier from the Eden Valley, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 14% new French and Hungarian oak hogsheads. 18.0-/20 Jul 2018 RRP $24.95
