Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2018

Yalumba's Y Series represents cracking value across the board. This Shiraz Viognier is no exception. An inviting hit of Mulberry, blackcurrant, even some cherry in the mix; what seems a mere kiss of oak - there is none - accentuates and frames the wine up. Peppery hints tickle the nasal cavity.

Medium bodied on entry to the palate, black fruit that glides across effortlessly, fine rub of tannin; spice and acidity aid flow and length.

Very good value. This wouldn't look out of place amongst luminaries two times the price. 89
