Yalumba ‘Y Series’ Viognier 2018

Each vintage, this wine delivers zing to your glass, and the 2018 is no different. This is always a cleverly crafted dry, white wine and you get a whole lot of value in your glass. Yalumba have established themselves as the Australian champions of this grape and this is just one version amongst a storybook full of viognier expressions from the Hill-Smith family. This expertise is apparent at all levels from this wine to The Virgilius. The ‘Y Series’ Viognier has all the classic hallmarks of the variety along with some wild ferment characters.

The ripe juicy apricot personality of this wine has some riper orange peel notes, and a lift of white pepper and floral perfume. And it is a richly perfumed nose – attractive and evocative.  It is fuller in body, as you might expect, and is kept fresh with some crisp, sometimes crunchy, acid. You get an elegant mouthful when you sip this evenly textured Viognier. 

Quickie review «A refreshing mouthful of peppery, citrus and stonefruit, strikingly gluggable whatever the season.»
