(2014 Vintage) The Viognier depicts vine cuttings. Vine cuttings are the beginnings of a new vineyard, planted after careful sorting, grafting and bundling in our state-of-the-art Yalumba Nursery. This thoroughly alluring wine evokes hints of honeysuckle, lemon and lychees.
Julius Squeezer - 1/21/2012 Rating: 86 The Yalumba wines are always an awesome value and this one does not disappoint. Honeyed nose of apricots, wildflowers and apple. Same on the palate with a lip smacking finish. Nesto - 11/20/2011 Rating: 89 Surprising. Stuffy nose, so hard to pick out aromas - some grapefruit and grass. Peaches and pineapple with nice acidity and minerality in the background. Just a hint of sweetness too. Went well with some spicy Afghan food. chifred - 10/2/2011 Rating: 88 Medium greenish yellow, clear. vibrant nose of pineapple, grass and stone fruit. Complex flavor with some tropical fruit, citrus, almond, something sharpish and something funky/organic. Nice medium finish. Good acid. Nicely balanced. Great value. Nice change of pace when yet another chardonnay, sauvignon blank or vouvray sounds oppressive. SLIMES - 9/17/2011 Excellent QPR as ever. When I eat thai, I like to keep the budget down and this wine works perfectly with this kind of food. I'm happy to spend £80 for a wine to go with a steak, but there's foods for which less is more; and there's little need to spend up from this if I'm having something spicy. tward - 9/6/2011 Rating: 85 Better than I expected; no notes taken, very good QPR, this is a bigger, riper Viogner that has a somewhat rich mouthfeel, but has firm enough acids, nice nose of white flowers, some honey and citrus, and tropical fruits (pineapple).
