This is a vegan-friendly wine (no fish bladders were used in production) and Yalumba also uses sustainable growing methods and indigenous yeast. Located northeast of Adelaide, Yalumba is one of only four Australian wineries with its own cooperage.
This Viognier is a shade of medium lemon and has a floral, citrus and fruit aromatic profile with jasmine, soft honeysuckle, and orange oil, white peach and apricot.
The palate is dry with average alcohol, good acidity and nice mouthfeel from ageing on its lees. Flavours show more peach and apricot with quince, orange pith, and white blossom. There’s a classic Viognier touch of bitter almond on the back end.
Balanced and food friendly, the finish is solid and the flavours have good complexity; this is good value for your dollar.
