Peter Forrestal has named Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2008
The Quaff 2010 ‘Wagyu Steak and Chips’ RED WINE OF THE YEAR AWARD
The 2010 Oberon Kant Award for The Quintessential Quaffer
The Ultimate Australian Wine under $15
“It’s like déjà vu all over again! The 2005 Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier won the Quaff 2008 Wine of the Year, the 2007 Yalumba Galway Vintage Shiraz won last year and the 2008 Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier is this year’s winner. Three out of four ain’t bad. Andy La Nauze and the team at Yalumba do a fantastic job – the consistency and sheer quality of the Y Series wines at their price point is something to be marvelled at. Its finesse and elegance combined with complexity of aromatics and flavour, the generosity and fleshiness of the texture, and overall drinkability really sets this wine apart. The 2008 Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier is the worthy winner of the Quaff 2010 Wine of the Year.”
