From the oldest family owned winery in all Oz, this is a beautifully balanced Viognier. Yalumba has long pioneered the growing of this grape and has become something of a specialist. Enjoy all the wine's creamy ripe apricot fruit and fresh finish.
Yalumba is one of the best known names in Australian wine. And for good reason! It was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith from Dorset and is still run today by the same family - the fifth and sixth generations of the Hill Smiths, Robert Hill Smith and his offspring. They specialise in showcasing the very best of the Barossa, and have pioneered with Viognier since 1980. This pure fruit L.E.R. Viognier is the creation of head winemaker, Louise Rose, whom it's named after. During her 26 year career at Yalumba, she has specialised in this grape, as well as challenging the perceptions of Barossa Shiraz and is hugely respected within the wine world. Enjoy in this wild ferment Viognier a bright, apricot fresh white. Great solo and with Asian cuisine.
"Such lovely balance and freshness in this bright Viognier from Australia's oldest family winery"
