Overview

Located on the Murray River at Loxton the Barich Family have a beautiful organic vineyard producing some wonderful viognier. They have been joined since the 2011 vintage by the Bassham Family of Barmera who have been producing viognier of a high quality for Yalumba for some time but have only recently been Certified Organic. Meticulous hand detailed work in both vineyards ensures that the grapes are in perfect condition when they are picked.

This wine is made with Organic Winemaking techniques with very little winemaking intervention.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Expert Reviews

"...It sits right between the Y Series Viognier 2012 and Eden Valley Viognier 2012 expressions in terms of quality and that’s how it has been priced.

Orange blossom and tangerine compliment the usual suspects and provide that extra bit of charm. There’s still plenty of apricoty, peachy, musky flavour with liberal ginger and cinnamon spice. Some savoury lees derived notes. It’s a mouthful and there could perhaps be more definition to the suety feel of the wine but ultimately it is a fulfilling exploration of the full-bodied Platonic form of the variety. I’m wavering between 89 and 90 but I’ll take the latter as it is a good enough Viognier to bring some of the more open-minded into the fold."Jeremy Pringle, Wine Will Eat Itself, 29 May 2013

"Yalumba's entry-level viognier - pure and apricot-like, complemented by a smooth texture and fresh, dry finish."88 points - Chris Shanahan, Canberra Times, 19 June 2013

Winery Profile

Red 5 Star Winery -James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Family-owned and run by Robert Hill Smith, Yalumba has long had a commitment to quality and has shown great vision in its selection of vineyard sites, new varieties and brands. It has always been a serious player at the top end of full-bodied (and full-blooded) Australian reds, and was the pioneer in the use of screwcaps. While its estate vineyards are largely planted to mainstream varieties, it has taken marketing ownership of viognier. However, these days its own brands revolve around the Y Series and a number of stand-alone brands across the length and breadth of SA. Yalumba has been very successful in building its export base. Exports to all major markets.
