Yalumba The Y Series Shiraz Viognier

A value-for-money triumph of 2011, creating an enticing juxtaposition between succulent, ripe dark berry compote and rhubarb fruits and the cool season tension of tangy acidity and finely textured, peppery tannins. Textured mouthfeel and confident persistence give an air of sophistication. $10 at Boccaccio, Jim’s and Nicks.
