Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant crimson with purple hues, the Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier, has a nose that is very expressive of its grape origins showcasing aromas of violets, blueberries and Turkish delight, with hints of ground spices. Medium bodied with lots of red berry fruits, the supple tannins and generous fruit flavours are typical of this contemporary red wine blend.
