Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2009 vintage was an excellent year for red wines in South Australia. Good rainfall was recorded during July and August 2008, proving invaluable as the following spring and early summer were extremely dry. A good rainfall in December was critical for the survival of the vineyards during the heat of late January and early February. The Shiraz vines weathered the heat well and were able to ripen in ideal conditions throughout February and March.

A deep crimson with violet hues, the Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2009 has an exotic nose with crushed raspberries, violets and Turkish delight, complemented by cinnamon, tea smoke and nuances of allspice. Succulent and layered, the palate has flavours of raspberries and violets. Cocoa powder tannins balance the juiciness of the palate and enhance the lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A lovely lilting mouthful of blackberry and floral flavors persist easily into the long, refined finish. A smooth and vibrant wine. Drink now through 2015. "
89 Points

"Voignier adds an otherwordly floral peach characer to this shiraz, bright with red-, blue- and green-skinned fruit. It doesn't take itself too seriously, but it's sleek and delicious in any case. And it's a steal at the price. "
