This one sneaks into the mid tier and from their Certified Organic program. Winemaker is Heather Fraser. Vegan friendly.

Yalumba, Organic, Viognier, South Australia, 2018

Frgrant honeysuckle, candle wax, almond husk, apricot skin, peppery green spice, green apple, ginger root. The varietal body offers a medium weighted waxy push with the grip bordering on blocky. Bright apricot preserve fruit with green stonefruit offset. Residual bittersweet candlewax and a medium-short finish. A solid step up in the spectrum of the range.
