YALUMBA HAND PICKED SHIRAZ / VIOGNIER 2014 is available to buy in increments of 1
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 Yalumba 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. 
Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"The Yalumba Hand Picked Shiraz Viognier is sourced entirely from the Eden Valley region. In 2014, four Shiraz vineyards stood out for their style and elegance and are the major contributors to this blend.

The Hand Picked Shiraz Viognier reveals the freshness of an Eden Valley forest with the wines cool feel portrayed in scents of violets, red apple skin and cedar. Tense and firm with a core of red fruit spiced with notes of cinnamon and black pepper. An airy and elegant red, it's the texture that beguiles here, clean lined, fine grained, transparent with a thrilling level of acidity that renders this lithe and light on its feet. Enjoy with slow roasted pork shoulder or Sicilian penne with roasted tomatoes and eggplant."
92/100 Wine Spectator (2014 Vintage)
A vibrant, fragrant wine, with plump cherry, peach and plum flavours at the core. Smooth and polished, this is accented by licorice, violet, black tea and nutmeg details. Lingers on the finish, where the tannins gain some grip.
91/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front (2012 Vintage)
"From Eden Valley vineyard sources and containing just 2% viognier. A slew of these ‘hip’-looking Yalumba wines are now packed into new, sleek looking black and white labelled bottles with a mix of fonts. Cork sealed for your pleasure. Smells rich and dense with little in the way of viognier influence though if you pay attention it’s a touch floral and apricotty, though mostly it’s brooding dark fruit and licorice and clove-wood scents. Slickness in texture, medium-bodied, cool and flirty through the finish. Feels like Eden Valley shiraz in lift of dark fruit and spice with a clean, citrussy acidity underlying. Easy to drink, lithe and well formed."
