Yalumba Y Series Viognier South Australia Screwcap 2009
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.
External Reviews for Yalumba Y Series Viognier South Australia Screwcap
Yalumba Y Series Viognier is a pale gold with green hues. The aroma offers intense white flowers and honeysuckle, with hints of apricot nectar. The palate is rich and very long and ripe, with citrus and tropical fruit flavors.
Bright yellow straw with green tinges, the 2009 Y Series Viognier has an eclectic mix of aromas, namely orange blossom, fresh ginger, camomile floweres and hazelnuts. The palate displays richness and texture from wild fermentation and lees aging with the flavours characterised by grapefruit pith, ginger and lemongrass. A clean, persistent finish, complemented by some exotic spices, this wine will reward if served with Thai-style dishes such as pad thai or pandan chicken.
