Having spent some time with the people of Yalumba recently, any time we find some of their wine at a local wine shop it's hard not to buy some. With 2013's quest to find affordable wines in the **** range more often the WW this week is a Y series Yalumba Shiraz Viognier. This is a great wine for this price range or a price range more than twice what was paid. Lovely purple color and nice clarity, it's easy drinking with dark berries, most notably blueberries and a touch of sweetness that is subtle and hard to put your finger on (Yalumba says Turkish delight) and a nice soft finish. This is a good wine to share and is easily paired with a variety of meat and pasta dishes. A solid 6 and **** this Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier is a bloody good drop so go get yourself some!
Happy Tasting Adventures,
