2009 Yalumba Shiraz/Viognier, Eden Valley, South Australia

( £11.99, 14%, Harrods, Slurp, Winedirect )

The Viognier is more obvious in this wine than it is in most Côte Rôties, but that’s part of the style. It’s ripe, soft and slightly apricotty, with supple red fruits, touches of oak. liquorice and blackberry and medium weight tannins.
