Yalumba
Varietal: Viognier
Vintage: 2016

Tasting Notes: Brilliantly crafted quality Viognier. This white entices with delicate floral and nectarine notes. On the palate, the wine is mouth-coating: citrus, pear and apple backed with ginger spice and white pepper with a slightly bitter finish, making this an excellent wine with a variety of foods. One of the most interesting viogniers on the market.
