Yalumba Organic Viognier

Yalumba Organic Viognier

Who makes it?

Yalumba Organic Viognier is part of Viognier story from the Hill-Smith portfolio. Yalumba have proven themselves as the Australian specialists of this Condrieu grape. For over 35 years, Robert Hill-Smith and his passionate team have honed their Viognier expertise and have kept their nursery well stocked with new imported clones to trial in their Eden Valley vineyards. 

How do they make it?

This particular Viognier has been blended from contract grown grapes from organic vineyards from around South Australia. The ferment used native yeasts.

What it does taste like?

From the fresh whiff this dry white is captivating. It has a supple cream overlying the fragrant jasmine, apricot and ginger fruit. The palate has a slight crunch at the finish and finishes balanced with a small amount of residual sugar (around 5 g/l).  The fruit is fleshy and ripe yet, it is not a big wine in any way.  

What to drink with it?

A viognier like this can take Asian flavours well within its stride. It is also a great match for grilled scallops and herbed chicken. It is also good to go by itself.
