Shiraz Viognier
Description

Rich and complex, with black fruits dominating the mid palate. Dark chocolate and earthy spices are complimented by fine grain tannins. Ethereal and elegant, with beautiful balance and structure - hallmarks of a classic cool climate Shiraz. 2015 was an exceptional year. A classic Yarra Valley growing season: a wet spring followed by moderate daily temperatures and cool nights. Perfectly balanced vines allowed the grapes to ripen in optimal conditions. In these reserve years, the pristine fruit flavours combined with intensity and power give the wine balance and longevity.

This wine comes with a limited edition Yering Station Gift Box, available online and cellar door only.

Deep purple/red colour, with a very complex and alluring bouquet of meaty spicy cool-grown shiraz and toasty smoky oak embellishment. Real elegance here. A gorgeous wine with seductive, slinky texture and spadefuls of deliciousness. The viognier is discreet. Outstanding shiraz.

It’s stonkingly good. From the dark purple hue, the excellent fruit – an array of plum flavours, perfectly seasoned with pepper, cinnamon and oak spice – to the killer tannins encompassing restrained power. Seriously good wine.
