Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I have only just discovered Viognier this year and I have had a few that I just love. This one was very good. This Yalumba Viognier was full flavoured with apricots, peaches and earthy spices. I had this wine with roast chicken and I thought it was a great match.
Straw in colour with green hues, the aroma of the Yalumba Organic Viognier 2011 is varietal and alluring earthy nose upfront before settling into the pretty aromas of white flowers, jasmine and honeysuckle with hints of fennel. The palate is a beautiful layering of distinct flavours starting with fresh apricot nectar, leading into a creamy mid palate with bright citrus and Asian five spice on the finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
