Yalumba has long had a special affinity for Viognier, but in recent years has outdone itself. This is a standout version of the entry level Y Series label, with succulent fruit and that exotic lemongrass and floral charge you hope to find in top quality expressions. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts (aka wild ferment) and aging on lees for three months contributed rich texture and complexity to the fresh, flavourful core of primary fruit. It’s utterly delicious — and begs the question how good the premium Eden Valley Viognier must be? Get excited.
