Yalumba Y Series Viognier 2011

Entry level Viognier from Australia's pioneer of the variety, Yalumba.  On the nose good honey and honesyuckle with a suggestive soapy - Starlight soap beckoning you in.  Textural mouthfeel, yes it's a little slapped on, unctuous, syrupy, full on mouth-feel.  By no means is it overdone, the texture here is interesting and a great counter-point to the pickled ginger note on the back end.

Acid is a little elevated, a tide to carry the added spice on the finish for further interest.  Matters conclude with a waxy feel - all up clean and interesting.  Smart for supposed entry level.  89 - Good.
