Wine tasting notes

Medium to deep red in colour the Yalumba Eden Valley Shiraz Viognier 2009 shows sweet, fresh and fragrant aromatics of red cherries and plums with a spice and clove complexity the complements the subtle perfumed floral hints of Viognier. On the palate the wine is rich and softly textured with characters of red fruits, fine spices and cloves, complemented by the subtle sweet presence of Viognier.

Expert Reviews

Wine Spectator (2013)89 pts

Robust, rich and juicy, bursting with flavors of kirsch and framboise and aromas of toasted cumin and black tea. A note of savory shows on the herb-scented finish

Vinous/Stephen Tanzer (2013)90 pts

Deep, lurid ruby. Ripe dark berries, cherry pit and a hint of licorice on the smoke-tinged nose and in the mouth. Shows good depth and gentle sweetness, and a spicy element adds back-end cut. Finishes with repeating smokiness, a hint of mocha and very good, gently tannic persistence. I like the blend of richness and energy here
