A blend made famous in the Northern Rhône Valley in France, this Shiraz Viognier is a recent and popular edition to the Yarra Burn range.
A medium bodied, finely textured wine with rich berry and spice characters. The Shiraz captures distinct regional elements of chocolate, cloves spice and blueberries, when blended with the Viognier bringing excellent floral lift and bright fruit to the nose and also creaminess to the palate.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant crimson in colour, with cherry red hue.
There are aromas of bright fresh, primary fruit, inky blueberry and ripe raspberry, with white pepper and cinnamon spice. The nose opens up with classic cool climate Shiraz perfume and violet notes.
With a silky, plush, velvety entry onto the palate, this wine shows lovely ripe, even tannin structure. The lift and additional palate sweetness from the Viognier contribution shows through. With good density and fruit weight, plus excellent persistence of flavour, the wine also opens up nicely with decanting, which is a good sign for the longevity, or cellaring potential, of the wine.
Enjoy with roast duck with orange zest, venison sausages, braised lamb shanks or rare lamb cutlets with rosemary.
