Reviews and Ratings
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Floral and honey aromas. Flavors of apricot, citrus and some beeswax. Has a creamy finish.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Delightfully fragrant, luscious and spicy. Aromas of gentle honeysuckle and jasmine lead to a rich palate giving peach, ginger and lemongrass with mouth-watering acidity and lingering spicy finish. This would be wonderful with Vietnamese dishes or a spicy Indian curry. Vegan friendly. Excellent value, too.
Tasted Feb. 2017
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Boasting prominently aromatics of Asian pear, apple blossom and beeswax on the nose this wine invites the taste by simply following the nose. The palate meets and exceeds expectations. Richly concentrated ripe fruits are met with a richly creamy texture. Honeydew melon, guava, a hint of underripe pineapple, on the palate. Great acidity, well balanced, integrated alcohol. This wine is a crowd pleasing and approachable creamy full-bodied Viognier and offers great value. Paired with seafood chowder, lobster bisque, or pan seared jumbo sea scallops. This is the Southern Australian expression of France's Rhone Valley - Condrieu région Viognier. Tasted Dec 2016. Rated 90/100.

Viognier is hard to grow and difficult to do justice to, as a winemaker. Many winemakers struggle with capturing its ripeness and aromatics.
Usually, these facts limit the frequency of finding it as well as how much it will cost you. That is why this particular Yalumba version surprises. It's easily available as general listing at most liquor stores and it's extremely reasonable in price.
There is no catch. One other fact about Viognier is that it casts off its aromatics, as it ages, and loses its vitality. This means it should be enjoyed while young and fresh. Moving it fast, while in its prime is the only reason I can fathom for a bargain like this.
It is wonderfully floral - reminding me of white tea, lavender, and petrichor.
This wine has great fruit notes - peach, musk melon, honey, and wheatgrass. These continue through the palate too.
Pair it with basa filets with lime and chiles.

After a cool spring, December and most of January were cooler than average. This cool start was followed by a return to warmer conditions at the end of January. This warm weather continued into February and accelerated the ripening of the Viognier with the blocks being harvested earlier than previous years but with the lush varietal flavours that we love and which match so well with spicy foods.
Sweet honeysuckle and jasmine fragrances set the scene for an exotic blend of grapefruit, lemongrass and stone fruit flavours. This alluring, silky white wine is rich, rewarding, and nothing short of delicious.
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
