Yangarra Estate Viognier 2011

Bloody smart wine this and certainly not something I was expecting.

Wild fermented, ten months in French oak and not fined.

Spring flowers, under ripe green pear, freshly sliced apricot, and almond meal. Good acid and very well balanced. Flavours caress the palate softly. It's just yum!
A fresh and lively Viognier, certainly not the apricot nectar type. For the money, you are the winner.

Cellar medium term but I'd prefer to drink this sooner rather than later.
