From the bottle:
“Rich, generous Shiraz from Eden Valley is co-fermented with 3% Viognier – The subtle, aromatic and exotic grape variety that enhances the colour and adds elegance and finesse. Bright and youthful, this is a deliciously spicy, silky and savoury wine. A Barossa stalwart with an alluring twist.
The 2008 Yalumba Eden Valley Shiraz Viognier begins with aromas of cherry, blackberry, violets as well as hints of menthol, pepper, vanilla, leather and even a little chocolate. This one offers quite a complex aroma under the initial fruit and floral component. Tasting this smooth, medium-bodied wine reveals nice blackberry flavor followed by a bit of peach, likely from the Viognier. There’s also a nice streak of spice that lasts all the way through to the finish. An easy to drink wine that should have wide appeal.
