Winemaker's Notes:

The Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier 2010 is perfumed and luscious – displaying all the essence of the Viognier variety. It has pure aromas of apricot nectar, lifted honeysuckle and orange oil perfume. The palate is long, rich and luscious, with intense stone fruit – particularly apricots – and finishing with an aromatic citrus freshness. Perfect with Moroccan food, spiced duck and anything lamb.

This wine will continue to grow and develop in the bottle, firstly showing enhanced apricot and spice flavors, before developing honey flavors and toast after approximately two years.
