The concept of blending Shiraz and Viognier is not new. It is derived from the great French wine region of Northern Rhone, in particular, the Côte Rôtie area. Côte Rôtie has often been described as one of France's finest and most perfumed red wines.

Yalumba is excited to release this magical wine. Using only the best Barossa fruit, the Yalumba Hand Picked Shiraz Viognier is both unique in style and rich in concentrated fruit flavour.

Traditionally the Yalumba Hand Picked Shiraz + Viognier wines have been crushed and fermented together as batches of Shiraz grapes each with a small percentage of Viognier grapes. In addition to this method, from 2006 we began using skins on their own for select batches during fermentation which adds another dimension of aroma and texture to this alluring wine. After fermentation, all batches are drained and pressed off skins and then racked to barrel for maturation.

The Yalumba Hand Picked Shiraz + Viognier 2010 is full depth crimson red in colour. The aroma opens with the fresh bright lifted spices, blackcurrants, cherries and lavender with violet florals and subtle white pepper hints. A medium to full bodied wine packed with dark fleshy cherry fruits and anise. This is an elegant wine with a framework of chalky tannins that exhibit its Eden Valley provenance. Match with roast duck.

The 2010 growing season began well with good periods of winter and spring rainfall. Spring also included periods of quite warm to hot conditions so the vines managed to establish good and healthy canopies. Summer conditions were mild to warm combined with typical cool nights of Eden Valley during late summer and autumn. The grapes achieved full flavour ripeness whilst also retaining good levels of natural acidity. Vintage 2010 has produced wonderfully aromatic and beautifully balanced varietal wines.
