Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Stone fruit, exotic fruit, minerality, crisp yet has a creamy almost oily mouthfeel and finish. Great on its own, and would pair wonderfully with poached pickerel with a mango chutney. Impressive quality to price ratio which helps boost the score on this award winning wine.
Tasted November 2013.

PS: The 2012 Yalumba Y Series Viognier recently won "Best Value White Wine (in the World)" in the IWC 2013 Championship.

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Brilliant yellow and medium bodied. Trademark Viognier "oily" texture and apricot. Smooth and buttery, white flowers, sweet spice and mineral nose and palate.
Suggested pairing: pork bellies! Winemaker suggests good cellaring for next 3-4 years.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

Fruit forward. Simple, but versatile. Ok wine.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

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.
