Yalumba Eden Valley Shiraz + Viognier 2008
from Barossa Valley, Australia
The concept of blending Shiraz and Viognier is
not new. It is derived from the great French wine
region of Northern Rhone, in particular, the Côte
Rôtie area. Côte Rôtie has often been described as
one of France's finest and most perfumed red
Yalumba is excited to release this magical wine.
Using only the best Barossa fruit, the Yalumba
Hand Picked Shiraz Viognier is both unique in
style and rich in concentrated fruit flavour.
This Shiraz Viognier wine is full depth red in colour with purple hues, and
shows violet, wild berry and dark cherry aromas, meaty and spicy with black
pepper hints. The palate is medium- to full-bodied with beautifully defined
fruit, juicy right in the middle with a long, intense and elegant palate with
black espresso-like tannins to finish.
