Yalumba Viognier Y Series (2018)
#56 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018
Bright straw in color with green hues, the 2017 Y Series Viognier has aromas of orange blossom and fresh ginger, with hints of honeysuckle and white flowers. Fresh pineapple, Chinese white tea and dried figs lead into a creamy mid palate with a silky textural finish.
Drinks perfectly with harissa chicken or crispy rice pancakes with potato and chickpeas.

Lemon, chamomile and spicy nectarine flavors are fresh and vibrant, set on a crisp body, finishing spicy and refreshing, with plenty of intensity.

Yalumba was one of Viognier’s early champions Down Under, and while its everyday bottling isn’t mind-blowing, it’s nevertheless a solid and mouthwatering drop. It starts with peach and apple skin, with honey and florals in the picture as well. The palate is creamy and tangy, with bright fruit and crisp, lifted acidity and a spicy note on the finish.
