Yalumba The Virgilius Viognier 2022

The last Friday in April is designated as "International Viognier Day". Unsure who gets to make a call to designate such, regardless Yalumba - without whom the variety might not exist, certainly in an Australian context at least - were kind enough to sling a bottle of their flagship "Virgilius" to mark the occasion.

Some barrel time - ten months, French oak - adds its presence here, over white florals and spice (mace, ginger) and a little vanilla.

There's weight to the palate, varietal and stylistically. Spice, depth - it's dry and on an excellent length and persistence of flavour. Drink to ten years. 94
