Yalumba Viognier South Australia the Y Series 2012
Polished, open-textured and nicely balanced to let the pear, apricot and clove flavors come through clearly, and linger on the finish. Wine SpectatorThe Y Series Viognier presents well defined ripe peach and honeysuckle aromas with a hint of mace. Medium bodied and dry with a suggestion of silkiness to the texture, it offers good concentration, a good line of refreshing acidity and a medium to long finish. Wine Advocate
Editorial Reviews for Yalumba Viognier South Australia the Y Series
Sunflowers and hay on the nose with a touch of honey and cream. Seemingly sweet approach, mostly from the dried apricot and honey flavors, there's a good mouthfeel here, puckering acidity to balance the alcohol, a good dose of honeydew melon and lemon, and a touch of lemongrass on the finish.
A nose of subtropical flowers (even dandelion), smooth and semi-sweet on entry with a hint of stem-like bitterness on the finish (not unusual). A bit too muscular on the flowery elements for some, but a sound wine at a great price. 87 points.

Fresh and expressive, packed with pineapple, pear and spice, smells sweet but finishes dry and silky. Drink now.
Light, bright gold. Ripe pit and orchard fruit aromas are lifted by notes of ginger and jasmine. Fleshy and broad, with good heft to its peach and poached pear flavors. Closes with solid punch, lingering spiciness and a subtle note of gingerbread.
Vibrant fruit notes, but an oily, smooth texture. This is a terrific alternative to your favorite Chardonnay, but with no toast or oak notes. Lovely pear, peach and banana fruit notes. Try serving the Yalumba with grilled chicken or paella.
