Yalumba Hand Picked Shiraz + Viognier 2018 750ml

A wet winter set the vines up for a healthy start to the season. Spring was drier than average and the vines responded quickly; growing and flowering well and setting a good number of bunches. Summer saw warm, dry days with cool nights ripening the grapes and maintaining freshness and natural acidity. The balmy Indian summer of early March helped complete the ripening of these perfectly balanced and flavoured grapes.

Medium depth purple in colour. The freshness and vibrancy of Eden Valley Shiraz abound, coupled with the complexity and intrigue from 20% whole bunch fermentation. Cool spices, red cherry, raspberry and alluring violets flow into peppercorn and herbaceous notes. This is a medium-weight wine that is very silky and refined.

Alc: 13.5%
