Yalumba Y Series Shiraz and Viognier 2010
Syrah/Shiraz from South Australia, Australia
Deep crimson purple in color, the 2010 Y Series Shiraz Viognier has aromas that are both wild and exotic. Blueberries, violets and cherry ripe notes from the Shiraz are elevated by the subtle influence of Viognier, which brings an alluring Turkish delight character. The well rounded palate is medium- to full-bodied and shows Turkish delight and cherry ripe flavors that are in harmony with the silky tannins.
Vegetarian and vegan friendly.
Wine Spectator - "Velvety, focused and juicy, this boasts spicy blackberry and cherry flavors, hinting at wet rock notes as it all lingers easily on the open-textured finish. Best from 2013 through 2018."

New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley.

3 ratings, 2 with reviewsRichard Zerr - Saint Charles, MO16/4/2012I purchased 2 bottles of the 2009 and both were terrible. I have had this wine before and it was great. I also am a fan of Yalumba but these two bottles both were bed. I would say corked but they use metal screw closures.Aaron Zaidman - San Luis Obispo, CA111/10/2012Penelope Goodsall - Napa, CA56/22/2012

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost 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%.
