2007 Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier

Australia has been known for producing great quality wines at a reasonable price for the past few decades. With the climate conditions the way they are in Southern Australia it is no wonder the excel at growing Rhone Valley varieties, such as Shiraz, Grenache and Viognier, since it mimicks that of Southern France . The wine is pale gold in color with green highlights, with a nose displaying aromas of apricot nectar, lifted honeysuckle and orange oil perfume. The palate is long, rich and luscious with intense stone fruit flavors, particularly white peach and apricot, finishing with an aromatic citrus freshness. Viogniers are wonderful white wines for the summer time and are excellent alternatives to Chardonnay. Pairs best with fish and summer salads.

Rating 9.1 out of 10
