    Wine Companion (2012 Vintage) says
    Brooding dark berried fruit flavour with edges of leather and crushed spice. Raspberry, liquorice and earth notes too. Creamy vanillin oak adds more to texture than to flavour. What really characterises this wine is its combination of composure and push of intensely fine, insistent tannin.

    Vivid purple hue; the fresh and fragrant bouquet offers black fruits, violets and anise; the medium-bodied palate is fleshy and generous, with a backbone of fine tannins and a lingering charry toast note on the fine-boned finish.

    96This is a stonking Yalumba Eden Valley Shiraz, and perhaps the best under this label yet. Just 2-3% co-fermented viognier is invisible, the focus instead remaining resolutely on the aromatic and perfumed character of shiraz in the cool Eden Valley. It abounds in violet perfume and deep layers of black plums, black cherries and liquorice, deep and succulent yet simultaneously refined and focused. Very fine, silky yet firm tannins point to a long future. Cork seal.

    An imposing wine of undoubted concentration and class; red fruits sit comfortably on top of darker notes, with a strong mineral element coming through the floral fruit

    Good colour; medium-bodied, with attractive lifted fruit aromas and flavours, fine tannins and good length. Super-weight bottle and rather ratty cork.

    Campbell Mattinson (2005 Vintage) says
    This wine has come a long way since the first release seven or eight years ago. Back then it had almost fifteen per cent viognier; this 2005 has only four per cent. It tastes better than ever. 2005 RELEASE Yummo. Terrifically savoury-sweet, sophisticated, smooth and supple. The damn thing even looks vibrant, and its fresh flavours of blackberry, cherry, sandalwood and earth make the wine seem lively in your mouth. If you're planning on serving this at dinner - would you mind if I dropped in? Please? DRINK 2008-2016

    This has some forthright aromatics (4% Viognier) and there's a more modern lift to the nose. Red fruit flavours and fine tannin glide through the silky supple palate, lots of depth and sweet ripe fruit, superb balance and length. A savoury tannin carriage, this is on form!

    Another consistent performer from the Yalumba stable, this wine does the juicy, fruit powered Shiraz Viognier thing extremely well. Its rich, velvety palate is choc full of vibrant berry/ cherry/ plum fruit, backed up with fine tannins.

    Good colour; a vibrant and fresh bouquet with Viognier lift; a very substantial wine in the mouth, with texture and structure from quite firm tannins.

    winemaker's notes

    The addition of Viognier to Shiraz adds complexity and nuance to the wine. Using only the best Eden Valley fruit, this wine is rich in concentrated fruit flavour. Traditionally, the two different grape varieties for this wine have been crushed and fermented together.
