A new range of wines from Chateau Yaldara aimed at a a new market. It's pretty good drinking too.
A loose interpretation of "field blend", the fruit comes from the Adelaide Hills (Chardonnay and Viognier) and Semillon from the Barossa. Perhaps the truck just had the Semillon tossed in the back on the way through from the Hills?
The Viognier stands up here. Apricot skin and apricot kernel stride out early. Green melon and a hint of lemon get swept up by ginger biscuit spice. Sift a little deeper and some cut green apple awaits. There's a credible textural element to this wine and it lingers longer than expected. I'd suggest throw some food at it - the texture screams for it. A tick from me.
