Yalumba, Viognier,  Eden Valley 2015

Not quite ripe crisp stonefruit slices, ginger nut snap biscuits and a lightness of white flowers/jasmine. Smells soapy dental hygiene fresh.

Unique palate: Asian broth/lemongrass like spiciness and richness of mouth feel. Quandong citrus fruit, lime pith and almond husk all shuffles along before there’s a sharp nectarine stone fruit twist. Very good example of an oft unrecognised (at least in Australia) variety.

RRP: $24
Alc: 13.5%
