Winemaker's Notes:

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.
