Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Value Wines of 2002

Golden in colour, the Yalumba Viognier is an enchanting wine with aromas of lemon and honeysuckle with hints of spice. The palate is rich, luscious and silky with juicy tropical fruit, citrus and lychee. These exotic flavours are intensified when paired with food - try with lightly spiced Asian dishes such as stir-fry noodles or a green chicken curry.
