Yalumba @ the Red Brick Cafe, Guelph

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.
