Yalumba, Organic, Viognier, South Australia, 2021
Richer and funkier than the straight-down-the line Y Series. Starts reductive and reticent. Once open, there’s definitely more bang for the buck here. Fennel frond anise, apricot kernel and skin, sweet orange blossom, lemon zest, ginger skin and pineapple juice. Waxy and coating texture, still retaining impetus and drive. Powerful enough to handle well-weighted foods such as Moo Grob (Thai pork belly).
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
