Yalumba The Guardian Shiraz Viognier 2010

Initially little sign of the Viognier here - indeed it "should be seen and not heard" as someone once told me. Meaty, a little ferrous, florals start to come through with a little time.

Medium bodied, has a juicy, cola-ish feel mixed with delicious berry fruit. Offers up spice with an easy-going, slippery textural feel to it.

Concludes with a savoury edge after the juicy fruits that come before it. 89
