*** $ 2005 Yalumba Winery Viognier Y Series South Australia - Wine Tasting & Review (BEST VALUE)

Find Yalumba Y Series Viognier retail pricing and availability.

Original Review, October, 2006 : Bright, creamy lift. Light green/gold transparent color. Nice straw-grass aroma with just a pleasant hint of funk. Flavor starts creamy, acids and grass follow-on immediately, with a fairly rapid finish. Spells summer to me.

Updated Review, almost four years later, now five years from vintage date, July, 2010:   With some age now, light honey in color.  Aroma still carries the very light straw grass, with just the merest hint of mineral oil.  Creamy and sweet on the start of the palate.  Follows with lots of follow-on complexity: grasses, oil, acids - all nicely interwoven.  Now a remarkable four stars at a bargain price.  Crazy best value!
