Wine critic Ralph Kyte-Powell has released his last picks before Christmas, with Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2009 receiving four stars in today’s Epicure liftout of The Age.
A perfect accompaniment to a delicious festive feast!
“Few Australian wine labels are better value, or as reliable as Yalumba’s Y Series. This 160-year-old Barossa winery is one of Australian wine’s great institutions. The shiraz viognier has earthy, slightly rustic aeomas od florals, juicy plum and spice, and a smooth, medium bodied palate of flavour and soft tannins. Ageing? Drink over three years. Food ideas: Barbecue meats; Chinese roast pork and duck. Four stars – a very good wine of real style and personality. Great value – a wine with a price tag that makes it a steal.”
Ralph Kyte-Powell, Epicure, The Age (Aus), December 21, 2010.
