Yalumba ‘Y Series’ South Australia Viognier 2018

Viognier from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 05-Oct-2018
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with pale lemon-gold hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant with good depth and penetrating intensity of ripe citrus fruit with floral blossom and lemon zest, along with subtle notes of exotic florals and a hint of spice. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has very good depth and intensity with a taut and concentrated line of bright exotic citrus fruit and flora blossom, showing excellent clarity and purity. The fruit has suggestions of richness and unctuousness and is underlined by some alcoholic drive. The acidity is fresh and integrated and the wine carries smoothly along a fine phenolic line leading to a lingering, nuanced finish. This is a deep and intense dry Viognier with clarity and purity of citrus and lifted floral blossom driven by some underlying alcoholic power. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese fare over the next 2-3 years. South Australia fruit indigenous yeast fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 2.3 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. Winemaker: Heather Fraser. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $16.95
