What this town needs is more people paying attention to our environment. That’s why one of the wines selected for this months RBC Wine Tastings Club is Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier. They have won several environmental awards including the Climate Protection award from the US Environmental Protection Agency. How cool is that – the freekin’ EPA!
Furthermore it is delicious!
Even though I love Guelph and respect its commitment to the environment, I will not drink a wine that is organic, lowering the global temperature, or saving the last dodo bird unless it is REALLY good. This one is REALLY good.
A blend of Shiraz and a small percentage of white Viognier wine that turns a tough “John Wayne” manly Shiraz into a sensitive 21st century “I’m not afraid to cry at a romantic comedy” wine with softer tannins and interesting floral hints.
