Bright gold in colour with a medium intense nose.

Positives: Lots going on here with apricots, nectarines, lemon, green olives, jasmine, clove, walnut & a touch of honey. Medium to full body with good medium+ acidity & long length.

Negatives: A little bitterness on the finish.

Interesting Point: Yalumba is consistently one of the best producers of Viognier outside Condrieu, Northern Rhone in France.

Drink now or over the next 3 years on its own or pair it with Cornish hen.

Tasted: 29 June 12

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5+/10, Total: 17.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4
