Winemaker's Notes:

A bright yellow straw in color, the Yalumba Y Series Viognier 2010 exhibits an alluring mix of honeysuckle, candied ginger and glaceĀ“ pineapple aromas, which are typical of this exotic variety. In the mouth the palate has flavours of fresh pineapple and dried figs. It is finely balanced with silky texture from wild fermentation and lees aging. A wine of poise, which is delicious with zucchini flowers stuffed with a goat's cheese, pine nut and baby spinach mousse. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
