Winter rains promised a good start to the 04/05 growing season. An excellent mild spring and summer provided an even and long ripening period, resulting in red wines with excellent fruit flavour and richness.
Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2005 showcases the excellent varietal characters of these two grape varieties, co-fermented to capture their synergy.
This wine is deep purple red in colour with the nose showing initial aromas of violets and sweet berry fruits, messed with the subtle fragrance of apricot and musk. The palate is stylish and approachable, showing sweet berry mid palate fruits with a soft even texture and fine tannin finish.
