2006 Yalumba Shiraz Viognier South Australia Y Series

January 31, 2008

Yalumba Shiraz-Viognier South Australia The Y Series 2006, 88pts, WS

WineMad paid $8.99 @ Joe Canal’s.

Yalumba’s notes: Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier is bright and youthful. The nose is full of spices, licorice and plum fruits with subtle hints of Viognier emphasised by soft jam of fresh purple grape aromas.

The palate is supple, chewy and delicious with sweet vinour fruits and loose-knit tannins. A spicy, savoury and silky wine with a lingering finish.

WineMad’s review: spicy nose, dark berry, peppery, dark fruits on the palate, medium finish. Excellent QPR. Recommended.
