2021 Yalumba The Virgilius Viognier


Tasting Notes

From Yalumba: The Virgilius is Yalumba's flagship white wine. After more than 40 years of working with this variety, the cool elevated slopes of Eden Valley has proved its place in the world as one of the great homes of Viognier. Handpicked and wild fermented in old French oak, this is wine with layers of richness, complexity, fine textures and flavours.

 Pale gold with green highlights. Aromas of white flowers, fresh apricots, cardamom, white pepper and fresh ginger. Lifted ginger spice is layered on the palate with mineral, sourdough-like texture, apricots and almond savouriness. The hallmark Viognier texture of the palate is clearly evident in this wine. It is complex while at the same time shows purity and restraint that will unwind slowly in the glass and take the imbiber on a sensory journey.
