From South Australia comes Yalumba Wines:
Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2012
La Nina conditions moderated throughout 2011 allowing the grapes to ripen in ideal conditions producing grapes with outstanding depth of flavour. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation and 3-5 days post ferment maceration has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build an elegant structure.
Deep crimson in colour, this wine is an exotic mix of aromas – Turkish delight, cinnamon, black cherries and violets. Medium bodied to taste, Y Shiraz Viognier is packed full of rhubarb and spiced fruit cake, and finishes round and soft.
The Yalumba Y Series Sauvignon Blanc
Given 12 hours skin maceration prior to draining and pressing, the fruit is then gently pressed to extract the clean free run juice.
Y Series Sauvignon Blanc 2013 is layered with tropical fruits like paw paw and mango with mouth-watering acidity and freshness. This is a lively wine perfect for drinking now.
