Yalumba Samuel's Garden Viognier 2015
This Viognier is classy. Since 1980 Yalumba have pioneered the variety in Australia. 60% of this 2015 was pressed to old French oak and the rest to stainless steel for ten months. Declassified fruit from the Virgilius finds its way in here too - win win.
Aromas of field flowers, dried apricot, honeysuckle, ginger, canned peach nectar. Luscious to taste, the fruit is soft and shows plenty of breadth. It's nicely balanced too. There's texture. There's length. Ginger spice has a gentle caress. Yes please!
Drink now to five years.
93/100 - Very good.
