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."
Yalumba is Australia's oldest family-owned winery, founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith. From modest beginnings, the Yalumba Wine Company has grown to become one of Australia's most successful wineries, owned by 5th generation Robert Hill-Smith. Yalumba regularly receives accolades for its outstanding wines, and for its leadership in viticultural innovation and sustainable farming. Yalumba was the first winery in the world to be recognized with the Climate Award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (2007), earned the International Green Apple Gold Award from House of Commons (U.K. 2011), and was the first winery outside the United States to win the BRIT International Award of Excellence in Sustainable Winegrowing Competition (2013). The Yalumba portfolio commences with the fresh and flavorsome varietal wines of the Y Series, then moves up to the Samuel’s Garden line to capture the essence of the classic Rhone-influenced varietals of the Barossa and Eden Valleys, explores sub-regional complexity through innovative, modern wines in the Hand Pickedline, and culminates with the coveted, collectible Yalumba Rare and Fine wines including Signature and Octavius.

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
