Expert Reviews

93 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitElegant yet flavoursome, this a gorgeous rendition of the variety showing lifted aromas of rockmelon, apricot, apple blossom and subtle spice on the nose, followed by a beautifully weighted palate that is velvety and mouthfilling. The wine offers lovely fruit purity backed by bright acidity, finishing persistent and flowing. At its best: now to 2022. $20.00. NZ Distributor: Negociants NZ.
90 Points - Bob Campbell MW - The Real ReviewPrettier with greater purity than the Y-Series Viognier. Bright, fresh wine with apricot, wildflowers and vanilla flavours. A flavoursome wine supported by tangy acidity
90 Points - Campbell Mattinson - Halliday's Wine CompanionIt's not profound, but there's enough emphasis and texture here to make you take notice. Stone fruit and spice flavours but it's the mouthfeel that gets you in.
90 Points - Campbell Mattinson - The Wine FrontViognier is often the pick of the Yalumba Organic range. Reckon it is again this year. Be interesting to know how many people are buying varietal viognier nowadays. It’s floral and spicy and it has good mouthfeel. It offers decent weight of flavour too. So it tastes good, feels good, has a gentle complexity and is satisfying. That’s not a bad start.
88 Points - Decanter World Wine Awards 2019 - BronzeIntensely floral, with a steely, underlying minerality to the nose. Retains a good freshness on the palate.
86 Points - Huon Hooke - The Real ReviewLight straw-yellow hue. The aroma is fresh and clean, with a slight herbal overtone as well as some varietal spice. It's light to medium-bodied and has a touch of tannin chew. Indeed, the phenolics tend to rule the palate. It calls for food.

Who made it?

Chief winemaker Louisa Rose directs the winery in a style of their own. It incorporates unique elements such as a grape vine nursery and on site cooperage. Yalumba is at the forefront of introducing new varieties and styles to the Australian palate. They include perfumed Viognier, fresh Vermentino and supple Tempranillo, with Fiano and Verdejo soon to come. Yalumba adopts a holistic approach to environmental practices, focusing on sustainability and natural resource management. They take a leading role in the industry by reducing carbon emissions, increasing biodiversity and exploring organic viticulture. Yalumba has been recognised on the international stage with numerous awards for sustainable environmental management practices. They celebrated 160 years of Barossa heritage with the development of the Barossa Old Vine charter and the release of red wines from ancient Shiraz and Grenache vines. Yalumba was founded in the Barossa Valley in 1849 by British migrant and English brewer, Samuel Smith. Smith and son planted the estate’s first vines by moonlight after purchasing a 30 acre parcel of land just beyond the south eastern boundary of Angaston. Samuel named the patch Yalumba, an aboriginal word meaning all the land around. Five generations and 160 years later, Yalumba has grown in size and stature to become Australia's oldest family owned winery. Yalumba is now run by fifth generation descendant, Robert Hill-Smith and family. Robert was appointed Managing Director of Yalumba in 1985. The Hill-Smith family is committed to an energetic and innovative company that is quality focused and young at heart.
