Yalumba Viognier (Eden Valley)

Cracka Review

The colour is pale gold with green highlights, with a nose of pure aromas displaying apricot nectar, lifted honeysuckle and orange oil perfume. The palate is long, rich and luscious, with intense stone fruit - particularly white peach and apricot flavours, finishing with an aromatic citrus freshness.

This wine will continue to grow and develop in the bottle, firstly showing enhanced apricots and spice, then after a couple of years, honey flavours and toast.

"Lively stone fruit aromas make for an enticing approach to this wine that follows on with fresh stone fruit appeal on the palate, spice and further ripe yellow fruits then acting in tandem to create a slightly overt style that obviously attracted the consumer's attention." - Tony Love for The Advertiser, 2009

"A little woolly sulphur with peach, pear, spice and lychee - white flowers too. A little more restrained in style than your usual Australian Viogner with its mid-weight palate, and while the flavour is good, it has a somewhat unyielding nature and a hardness that fails to win me over. The finish puts me in mind of slapping aftershave onto a well scrubbed face. It's OK and perfectly drinkable, but not much fun.The words may seem harsher than the score would indicate, but that's an attempt to strike a balance between the subjective and the objective." - 86 Points, Gary Walsh for www.winefront.com.au, 2009

"From the masters of Viognier comes another great value edition. This bouquet is full of peach and apricot fruit and mixed spice, which surge through the palate with great concentration, a very long finish and great balance." - Panel of Judges, WBM Wine100 Magazine, 2009
