Yalumba, Organic, Viognier, South Australia, 2019

Melange of white flowers/blossom with distinct varietal apricot flesh, green grape with a beeswax undertone and fresh grated ginger. The palate benefits from a well balanced mix of fleshy weight, texture and well honed acidity. The finish of juicy apricot flesh feels a little indulgent but rewarding. A very good release and a fine entryway into the variety for those yet to experience the grape.
