Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier 2017 (12 x 750mL) SA

Description:

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

A beautifully wet winter in Eden Valley set the vines up well for a healthy start to the growing season. A drier than average spring meant the vines responded quickly; growing and flowering well and setting a good number of bunches. Summer saw warm and dry days with the important cool Eden Valley nights. These conditions ripen the grapes and maintain freshness and natural acidity. The balmy Indian summer of early March helped finish the ripening of these perfectly balanced and flavoured grapes.

VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING

After harvest, 60% of the fruit was gently pressed directly into old French oak barriques and puncheons and the remainder into stainless steel tanks for fermentation by wild yeast from the vineyard. The wine was left on lees, where regular bâtonnage for ten months increased the complexity and creaminess of the wine and further heightened the palate weight.

Expert Reviews

High on varietal character, chubby with flavour, generous, satisfying, all those things. Stone fruits and spice, florals, a drop of rose water. It delivers plenty. - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Pure aromas reminiscent of fresh apricots, ginger, saffron and fresh white flowers. The palate is long and silky with stone fruit flavours, finishing with an alluring freshness. This wine will continue to grow and develop in the bottle, firstly showing enhanced apricots and spice, then honey flavours and toast complexity. Enjoy with a Moroccan tagine and spiced cous cous, or falafel and baba ganoush wraps.

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.
