Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ Viognier 2021, South Australia

The Y Series is a collection of iconic classics and exciting new varietals. Each wine is authentically crafted with fruit from South Australia’s most celebrated wine regions. Good winter and spring rains enabled the vines to grow healthy canopies. Summer was warm to mild with cool nights, great for the development of pristine aromatics and flavors. Vintage 2021 has produced Viognier grapes of balance, style and exceptional varietal characteristics. Tasting notes: Bright straw in color with green hues. Aromas of orange blossom with fresh ginger, hints of honeysuckle and white flowers. Fresh apricot, white tea, dried figs and fennel lead to a creamy mid-palate with a silky, textural finish. The wild fermentation and lees aging gives the wine an extra level of complexity on the palate that belies its age.
