Background

Yalumba wines have a style all of their own and each have been influenced by a diverse range of elements. Elements Yalumba likes to call 'the controllables', such as the Yalumba Vine Nursery and on-site cooperage – as well as other factors that cannot be emulated by any other winery. Yalumba’s history and tradition combined with a reputation for innovation.Yalumba has been at the forefront of introducing new wine styles to Australian drinkers over the past decade; perfumed white viognier and slinky, supple red tempranillo.

Yalumba also leads the industry in environmental performance; reducing carbon emissions, increasing biodiversity and exploring organic viticulture. As well as looking to the future, it has been celebrating its 160-year-old Barossa heritage by developing an Old Vine charter, and releasing reds from ancient shiraz and grenache plants. 'Remaining one of Australia's oldest, largest and most prestigious family owned companies, Yalumba's top wines should not be overlooked amongst the limelight-hogging young-gun wines that have sprung-up around the Barossa in the last 20 years.' (Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, erobertparker.com, Dec. 2010)


Tasting Notes

Clear pale straw in colour, with forward peach, floral, citrus and tropical fruit flavours. On the palate, this lush medium-bodied viognier is dry, and it has a soft, round texture. Flavours of apricot, citrus honey and ginger lead to a long finish.

Reviews

90 points, Beppi Crosariol (The Globe and Mail):
"It’s a bargain every year, but the 2016 frankly seems like a gun-free way to rob your liquor store. Medium-full and ripe, this silky-oily, wild-yeast-fermented white offers layers of stone fruit, orange, jasmine tea and lemongrass. The 2016 vintage, now rolling out in the East, is about to come on-stream in the West in May. "
