Clones: a chapter in Yalumba's viognier journey.
Late 2005 saw the beginning of the planting of the first viognier clonal selections that had been propagating in the Yalumba Vine Nursery in the Barossa. Eight different clones were planted on the south eastern park of the Yalumba Eden Valley vineyard - the "Virgilius Vineyard" on Flaxmann Valley Road. This represents the most clonally diverse planting of viognier in Australia. Although it will be some years before these vines are able to produce grapes, and more years again before they are of suitable standard to go in The Virgilius blend, this is the next exciting stage in the Yalumba viognier journey.
"The Virgilius" shows a montage of grape flavours; apricot nectar, lifted spice, lychees and orange blossom are typical aromas. The palate is long, opulent and rich with stone fruit flavours, finishing with citrus freshness.
