Winery Tasting Notes

Above average Spring and Summer temperatures, combined with lower than average crop levels and also the absence of rain has led to an early ripening season. As such, 2013 has seen wonderfully aromatic, rich and flavoursome Viognier wines produced throughout the regions of South Australia this wine has aromas of Orange blossom, fresh ginger and hints of hazelnut and camomile.

Aroma

Sourced from a number of grape growing regions, the criteria for grapes to go into this wine is that they show the classic Viognier flavours and aromas of white flowers and apricot fruit, balanced by freshness and zest.

Palate

On the palate we can enjoy fresh pineapple and dried figs, followed by a creamy mid palate with a silky textural finish. The wild fermentation and lees ageing gives the wine an extra level of complexity on the palate that belies its age.

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.
