Yalumba GEN Organic Viognier 2022

Part of Yalumba’s new GEN: “five certified organic wines, sustainably made at the Yalumba winery” which “embodies the brand’s sustainable journey and commitment to the next generation, with a fierce determination for the future.” The GEN wines will be Sustainable Winegrowing Australia (SWA) certified from this vintage on and all leftover stalks, seeds and skins are used for under vine mulch. The labels are made from post-consumer waste and FSC-certified paper.

Yalumba, GEN, Organic, Viognier, South Australia, 2022


Pale to medium lemon. Solid varietal Viognier notes with apricot flesh and honeysuckle blossom sweetness. There’s warming white pepper and roasted (unsalted) cashew. Weight with rich stone fruit flesh and honeyed tones before a focused finish and peppery spice. Not overtly complex but well crafted (as expected from Yalumba) and thoroughly delicious. Yes please.

RRP: $22
Alc: 13%
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
