Yalumba Triangle Block Shiraz Viognier 2013 (12 x 750mL) Eden Valley

Description:

Vintage Conditions - Temperatures through spring, summer and into autumn were warmer than

average. These dry and warm conditions produced lighter weighted Shiraz crops with much smaller bunches and berries. These lighter crops were, however, concentrated and full of flavour.

Winemaking/ Viticulture - Select parcels of Shiraz grapes are fermented with a small percentage of

Viognier grapes, whilst some other parcels are fermented with Viognier juice, and the remainder is fermented on its own. Utilising these different fermentation options has enabled us to blend a soft and stylish wine showing subtle Viognier aromatics combined with the medium weight and finer tannin structure of Shiraz.

Eden Valley has been home to Yalumba and its Shiraz since 1849. Taking the name from Yalumba’s oldest surviving centennial Shiraz vineyard, and grapes from a handful of our most loved vineyards, the Triangle Block pays testament to this history. There is great diversity across the Eden Valley; from vineyards that exhibit quite subtle fragrant aromatics and a much finer, more elegant palate to those that are more dense in style with darker brooding aromatics and palate richness. What links them all together is an underlying finesse and

purity, the hallmark of Eden Valley Shiraz. With a hint of Viognier, this wine embodies Eden Valley.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Triangle Block 2013 Shiraz Viognier is all dark and brooding fruits. This is a dense wine with briar and dark forest fruits like dark mulberries and blackberries. The high-toned red fruit edge reminds us that this is from

the cooler hills of Eden Valley. The palate is all precision and energy with a refined purity of Shiraz. It shows an acid tightness enveloping the midpalate fleshiness and then the gravelly tannins complete this brooding

package. Cellar for 5-7 years. Drink with sage and rosemary crusted lamb with redcurrant sauce and a watercress salad.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Red 5 Star Winery -James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Family-owned and run by Robert Hill Smith, Yalumba has long had a commitment to quality and has shown great vision in its selection of vineyard sites, new varieties and brands. It has always been a serious player at the top end of full-bodied (and full-blooded) Australian reds, and was the pioneer in the use of screwcaps. While its estate vineyards are largely planted to mainstream varieties, it has taken marketing ownership of viognier. However, these days its own brands revolve around the Y Series and a number of stand-alone brands across the length and breadth of SA. Yalumba has been very successful in building its export base. Exports to all major markets.
