Yalumba ‘Y Series’ South Australia Shiraz/Viognier 2016

Blended Red from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 05-Jul-2018
Very dark, black-hued ruby-red colour with slight purple hues on the rim. The nose is elegant in proportion with intense and well-concentrated aromas of ripe blackberry and dark raspberry fruit entwined with violet florals, some black pepper, spices and minerals. This is gently lifted and fragrant. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rich and sweet core of ripe blackberries and dark raspberries entwined with violet florals. Some black pepper and spice notes add detail. The palate is rounded with an accessible mouthfeel, the fruit sweetness supported by soft, supple tannin structure with integrated acidity. This has good drive and the wine carries to a lingering finish. This is a rich, sweet-fruited, accessible Shiraz/Viognier with blackberry, raspberry, pepper and spices along with floral lift and a smooth mouthfeel. Serve with barbecued and grilled red meats over the next 3 years. A blend of Shiraz and Viognier, South Australian fruit fermented to 14.0% alc. and bottled without oak contact. 17.0/20 Jul 2018 RRP $16.95
