Description: Light gold in colour with medium to medium+ intensity on the nose.

Positives: A very nice aromatic wine showing honeysuckle, apricot, peach, pear, lemon marmalade. orange rind. Medium body with good acidity & long length.

Negatives: A little too much tartness on the finish.

Interesting Point: Yalumba consistently produces good Viogniers.

Drink now on its own. Enjoy it with pork loin stuffed with sun dried tomatoes & mozzarella cheese.

Tasted: 4 Mar 12
