Yalumba Y Series 2011 Reds

Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2011
Viognier self-evident, adds attraction sitting afront cherry and berry aromatics.  Juicy on the palate, hints of pepper and apricot tinged blue and black fruits.  

Spice coursing through the palate and finishes with hint of bark/ mulch on the finish.  Found this quite pleasant, juicy and rather drinkable.  88 - Good

Tasted on: Friday 26th October, a Flower Day

Y Series Shiraz 2011
Found this a little more challenging.  Woody, mulchy nose with some spice sitting afront blue and black fruit mix.  On the palate it had a woody feel, some spice by way of clove and star anise.  

Medium bodied with flecks of pepper.  A little astringent on the back end, moderate length with a rasp of tannin.  86/87 - Average
