Winemaker Notes

The nose has intense aromas of early season just picked apricots, cardamom, white pepper and fresh ginger. Lifted ginger spice is layered on the palate with mineral sourdough like texture and complex apricots and almond savouriness. The trademark Viognier lusciousness of the palate is clearly evident in this wine. It is complex while at the same time showing purity and restraint that will unwind slowly in the glass and take the imbiber on a sensory journey.

James Suckling
Immediately striking clarity on the nose with ripe apricots, orange blossom and white flowers, as well as some gently nutty, savory notes. The palate has a beautifully smooth and succulent feel with vibrant, fleshy apricot flavors, delivered in smoothly refined style.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Yalumba Virgilius Viognier is one of the best examples of this grape variety in the world. TASTING NOTES: This starts with superb fragrances and follows-through with a complete performance on the palate. Its attractive aromas and flavors of chalk, dried herbs, and tart citrus make this a magnificent food-matching wine. Pair it with twice-cooked pork. (Tasted: September 24, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator

Succulent white peach and dried apricot flavors are elegant and distinctive, showing restraint and a wonderfully smooth, succulent body. Precise details of nutmeg and litsea essential oil linger on the long, expressive finish. Drink now.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

The nose of this wine is fruity but delicately so, wafting stone and orchard fruit, citrus blossom, honeysuckle and fresh ginger. The palate is compact, set for aging into a more honeyed creature over the next eight to 10 years, its slippery texture sliced by acidity. Drink now–2030.

Yalumba, Australia
Yalumba Winery Video

Established in 1849, Yalumba is Australia’s most historic family owned wine company. It remains fiercely independent and extremely progressive through the generational ownership by the Hill-Smith family. Yalumba’s longevity and success is a result of patience, collaboration and progressive thinking. There is foresight to embrace the natural terroir to craft wines with individual character and a sense of purpose, a spirit to reinvest in the land upon which it operates and knowledge to behave as a leader in the industry. It is committed to sharing stories of provenance gathered over more than 168 years of history of family winemaking. Barossa is arguably the single most famous wine region in Australia. Barossa includes both Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, making it one of the only areas in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions. Yalumba is privileged to have access to some of the oldest vineyards in the world in Barossa Valley, including 1889 bush vine Grenache and 1908 Shiraz. At the inner sanctum of Coonawarra, on the prized terra rossa soil, lies Yalumba’s Coonawarra estate, The Menzies Vineyard. Comprised predominantly of Cabernet Sauvignon vines, this single vineyard is committed to growing premium quality fruit reflecting distinctive varietal characters of the region. Wrattonbully’s cool climate, plentiful high quality artesian water and well drained terra rossa soils led wine companies to plant large areas of mainly red grape varieties.

At Yalumba we continually strive to reduce our impact on the environment, stay involved in our community, and make great wine with minimal intervention in the vineyard and in the winery. We are committed to sustainable practices, with the belief that the healthier and more biodiverse the vineyards are the better the wines will be. Yalumba has been developing its own sustainable viticulture program since the mid 1990s, promoting the economic production of quality grapes . For every hectare of vineyard we own, we have at least one hectare of native vegetation. Our winemaking philosophy and practice means that our wines are made with the least intervention possible but with as much knowledge, confidence and expertise as possible. We want our wines to show their provenance and natural appellation – whether it be a single site, a variety or blend, or a personal style. At Yalumba we have been making wine utilising ‘wild yeast’ for over 20 years. We believe that the success and consistency that we have with wild ferments is a direct result of healthy biodiverse vineyards. All Yalumba wines are 100% vegan since the 2012 vintage, elevating our wines to a safe and ethical choice. Becoming vegan came from the desire to make wines of conviction that taste of provenance and natural appellation; and that ultimately represent quality.
