Yering Station Shiraz Viognier 2005

Shiraz viognier blends move slowly chez nous, seemingly never warranting an occasion to drink.  Yering Station's 2005 shiraz viognier from the Yarra Valley is a deeply saturated black in colour.  On the nose, a medium intensity aroma of pepper, cedar, plums, tinned fruit, twigs, burnt apricots and apricot kernels.  On the palate, a viscous texture with an oily apricot kernel character is met by medium length, tannins, medium acidity and pepper.  The wine seemed pleasant but the alcohol a little unbalanced or disjointed. 84 points (good)
