Yering Station Shiraz Viognier 2008

Co-fermented in new and old French oak, the wine delivers a bright colour and a nose of pretty spring flowers wrapped up in gentle spice. A drop of Viognier (5%) adds to the aromatics beautifully.

The palate possessed an enduring warmth highlighted by attractive fruit and a bucket load of berry flavour. A savory component rolled out at the end of the finish which was delicious. All elements just come together in this wine and sing harmoniously.

Elegant and soft, the length and mouthfeel was superb.

An absolutely brilliant wine, and for $28, it is a ripper deal.
