Complex and refreshing 5-star winner
Yalumba Y Series South Australia Viognier 2019
Full bodied, orange blossom, fresh ginger and honeysuckle flavours.
Bright straw in colour with green hues. There are lovely aromas of orange blossom, fresh ginger, hints of honeysuckle and white flowers. The palate has fresh pineapple, Chinese white tea and dried figs leading to a creamy mid palate with a silky, textural finish. The wild fermentation and lees ageing gives the wine an extra level of complexity on the palate that belies its age. Drinks perfectly with harissa chicken or crispy rice pancakes with potato and chickpeas.
"Offering excellent fruit purity and poise, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, apricot, subtle spice and floral aromas on the nose, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that is texturally delightful and tasty. Wonderfully harmonious and lingering. At its best: now to 2022." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
