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.
"Light gold. Restrained but sharply focused aromas of talc, citrus, pear and minerals. Bright lemon, pear and white peach flavors offer very good depth and are firmed by gentle acidity. Finishes on a zesty lemon-lime note, with impressive clarity and persistence. An outrageous bargain for viognier."
International Wine Cellar
"Soft and open-textured, with pure, pretty pear, white pepper and lime flavors that don't quit on the finish. Drink now through 2009. 900 cases imported"
