Yalumba The Guardian Shiraz Viognier
This shiraz/viognier blend from Eden Valley is quite a full bodied red, with a long savoury persistence consisting of a fine thread of velvety tannins, and a long, delicious, earthy finish. Dark red plum, spice and some oak on the nose, give way to a palate of red currants, sleek in feel, with slightly mulled dark cherries and steeped blackberries, underpinned by hints of anise and cloves. As might be expected from a wine containing viognier, this wine has decided floral aromas as well. Pair with roast turkey and tarragon infused potatoes, or grilled lamb cutlets with roasted vegetables.
Please note this wine is only available up to half dozen lots, or in a mixed dozen.
