eesh. Call me crazy but i got Vienna sausage on the nose and couldn't break the thought. I think it's supposed to be floral but smelled more like fermented flowers to me. Weird and savory. Bitter on the palate. Not a fan.

The soft, silky texture of this wine holds a lot of savory spice notes as well as ripe white peach fruit (note: this will be released in six weeks or so). Yalumba was the first Australian winery to commercially plant Viognier, by the by, and Robert Hill Smith of Yalumba was by our office the other day, which was convenient timing for this blog entry. About Viognier he says, "It's a naturally opulent fruit style, so the challenge is constraining it a bit." http://www.foodandwine.com/blogs/tasting-room/2009/3/31/Very-Good-Viogniers

Medium bodied while with balanced aroma and texture. A nose of lemon, key lime and honeysuckle with a creamy mineral body.

An enchanting wine with aromas of lemon and honeysuckle with hints of spice. The palate is rich, luscious and silky with juicy tropical fruit, citrus and lychee.

Winemaker's Notes:

Throughout its history, Yalumba has been willing to take a risk and back its judgement on a new variety, a new style, or a new direction, without losing sight of traditional strengths. Nowhere is this more evident than in the winery's pioneering work in Australia with the rare and alluring Rhône grape variety, Viognier. The vine cuttings shown on the Yalumba Viognier label depict the Hill Smith family's ability to think outside the square in the quest for quality. Such risk-taking and daring to make a difference has put Yalumba ahead of the rest in the ever-changing world of wine. On the nose there are aromas of fresh ginger and candied grapefruit with hints of white flowers. The palate is full-bodied with grapefruit and apricot flavours, and displays a persistent finish, matched with typical silky and harmonious Viognier texture.
