Winemaker's Notes:

The mild ripening season has lead to intense and aromatic aromas and flavours in the Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier 2006. It's a pale gold in color with green highlights. The nose displays aromas of apricot nectar, with lifted honeysuckle and orange oil perfume. A long, rich and luscious palate, with intense stone fruit flavors, particularly white peach and apricot, finishing with an aromatic citrus freshness.
