Winemaker 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.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 91
Australian Wine Companion

Bright quartz-green; there is definite musk and apricot-tinged varietal fruit expression on both bouquet and palate; surprisingly, grown at Loxton in the Riverland by the Barich family. Doubly accredited, and a great advertisement for organic growing.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Broad, spicy, round and generous, offering a silky, polished mouthful of almond, floral and spice along with pear and lychee. Drink now.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

This represents a top value among Viogniers, which often carry a price tag loftier than their quality deserves. Not so in this case; the variety's floral aromas are well displayed, backed by hints of melon, apricot and gingery spice. It's fairly full bodied, with a slightly viscous texture that extends to the warm finish. Drink now.

Yalumba
Yalumba is Australia's oldest family-owned winery, founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith. From modest beginnings, the Yalumba Wine Company has grown to become one of Australia's most successful wineries, owned by 5th generation Robert Hill-Smith. Yalumba regularly receives accolades for its outstanding wines, and for its leadership in viticultural innovation and sustainable farming. Yalumba was the first winery in the world to be recognized with the Climate Award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (2007), earned the International Green Apple Gold Award from House of Commons (U.K. 2011), and was the first winery outside the United States to win the BRIT International Award of Excellence in Sustainable Winegrowing Competition (2013). The Yalumba portfolio commences with the fresh and flavorsome varietal wines of the Y Series, then moves up to the Samuel’s Garden line to capture the essence of the classic Rhone-influenced varietals of the Barossa and Eden Valleys, explores sub-regional complexity through innovative, modern wines in the Hand Pickedline, and culminates with the coveted, collectible Yalumba Rare and Fine wines including Signature and Octavius.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
