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.
Wine SpectatorThis rich, spicy Viognier delivers apricot, honey and clove flavors that compete for attention. The finish is rich, dry and a bit earthy. Drink now through 2014.
International Wine CellarPale yellow-gold. White peach and poached pear on the fragrant, spice-accented nose. Pliant and expansive, offering rich pit fruit flavors and notes of candied ginger and white pepper. Lush but focused, even racy, with very good finishing cut and spicy persistence.
