Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ Viognier 2022, 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 late winter and early spring rainfall replenished the soils. A mild, wet spring kept moisture levels up to the growing vines. Summer and autumn were mild and dry which was ideal for ripening the grapes and allowed us to harvest at the perfect ripeness. Vintage 2022 – This award-winning Viognier is on the fresher, lighter end of the Viognier spectrum. It shows all the unique characteristics of this exotic variety, without being too punchy on the palate. Tasting notes: Cornsilk yellow in color with green hues. White flowers and honeysuckle dominate the nose with ginger and five spice. White flowers and ginger are joined by apricot nectar leading 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.
