Straw in color with green hues, the aroma of the Yalumba Organic Viognier 2010 is varietal and alluring showing lifted honeysuckle, lemon rind, apricot and peach aromas mixed with hints of orange blossom, cashew and ginger. The palate is rich, textured, and harmonious resulting in a luscious wine with layers of spice, citrus and apricot. Enjoy with spicy Asian cuisine.
Located on the Murray River at Loxton in South Australia this beautiful organic vineyard, owned by the Barich family and organically certified for more than 10 years, produces Viognier and Shiraz.
Made with certified organic winemaking techniques and fermented with indigenous yeast naturally present in the vineyard. Also suitable for vegetarians & vegans.
"Bright quartz-green; there is definite musk and apricot-tinged varietal fruit expression on both bouquet and palate; surprisingly, grown at Loxton in the Riverland by the Barich family. Doubly accredited, and a great advertisement for organic growing.
Australian Wine Companion
"Broad, spicy, round and generous, offering a silky, polished mouthful of almond, floral and spice along with pear and lychee. Drink now."
"This represents a top value among Viogniers, which often carry a price tag loftier than their quality deserves. Not so in this case; the variety's floral aromas are well displayed, backed by hints of melon, apricot and gingery spice. It's fairly full bodied, with a slightly viscous texture that extends to the warm finish. Drink now."
