Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier 2012

The last of a quartet of viogniers from the varieties saviour in Australia, Yalumba. You can find the Y Series, Organic and Virgilius elsewhere on this site. 

There's a lime and cream aspect on opening, followed by peach skins, apricot kernel. Somewhat delicate, not overbearing.

Textural, spicy, rich - has a fair degree of presence. Touches of white pepper, brown spice and a many layered textural presence. Concludes with a little pickled ginger, length building, spice lingering. Will go another 2-3 years I reckon. 91
