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.

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