Textbook viognier with an opening salvo of white floral notes, spices, rose petal, white peach. Floods the senses with the essence of summer in a glass. Amazing aperitif and food companion. Brilliant!

Viognier food pairings: chicken in a ginger, orange sauce, lobster thermidore, pizza, coquilles st. jacques, sweet-potatoes with marshmallows.

Charming Grilled Chicken Wine

Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Perfect sipper as guests arrived and enjoyed appetizers.This warm/hot climate Viognier hits all the right notes. Brilliant yellow, medium in body. Tropical fruit, tree fruit, tree blossoms, honey and sunshine. Served a little less chilled this wine expresses it's personality even more. Great New World Viognier.
When Yalumba first started making big noises about viognier – over a decade ago – the wines they often produced were big, spicy, hedonistic, alcoholic numbers. This wine is reminiscent of those releases – with refinement. Indeed I’d argue this wine suggests how far Yalumba – and Australia – has come with viognier. It’s just a good wine, no trumpets – but with a few signature flourishes. Ginger, stone fruits, fleshy white nuts, warm stewed apples. It’s biggish but not burningly so. It’s not just another white white, it’s viognier and proudly so. A wine like this has a real place in the Australian white wine drinking landscape. I probably should rate it higher. Drink: 2012- 2013. Score: 89. Source: Campbell Mattinson, wine-front.com.au, Oct. 15, 2012
