Yalumba FSW8B Botrytis Viognier

Cracka Review

The flavours of Viognier have a wonderful synergy with the flavours of botrytised wines, and Wrattonbully seems to be a perfect region for the production of them. Fruit ripens naturally with high sugar and flavours in the warm Summer, and then waits for Autumn with dewy mornings and sunny days to initiate and sustain the growth of the Botrytis fungus. Botrytis metabolises in the berries dessicating them, increasing the sugar concentration and contributing its unique flavour.


Yalumba Wine Reviews and Accolades

Trophy & Top Gold Medal: 2010 Macquarie Group Sydney Royal Wine Show

"Exotic tropical fruit bouquet, with fresh apricot, vanilla, crème-brûlée, ginger and cardamom; the palate is unctuous, yet not heavy, with a delightfully refreshing cold tea component cleaning up the finish." - 94 Points, Ben Edwards for James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion

"Fresh intense and limey, with hints of apricot and tropical fruit. Beautifully made, intense, long and balanced by clean acidity. Brilliant." - Outstanding, Winewise Magazine, 2010
