Eden Valley

Yalumba The Virgilius Eden Valley Viognier

Viognier 2008
  • Vintage quality: This vintage featured extremes, with dry and warm weather throughout summer leading into a record heatwave during harvest in March.
  • Cellar guide: Good Cellaring for 3-4 Years
  • Last tasted: March 2009, Louisa Rose, Winemaker
  • Notes: The 2008 season has created a wine with both finesse and opulence, with layers of complexity and lusciousness. The wine is pale gold with green highlights. The nose displays intense aromas of white peach, apricot and ginger. Ginger spice is layered on the palate with mineral texture allure and complex apricots and white stone fruit flavours. The trademark Viognier lusciousness of the palate is clearly evident in this wine which is rich, lush-textured and complex while at the same time, showing restraint that should ensure good cellaring for at least 3-4 years. This wine is at its best with food, and complements a wide range of flavours.' Awards and Accolades: 1 Trophy, 1 Commendation, 3 Gold
