Eden Valley

Yalumba The Virgilius Eden Valley Viognier

Viognier 2020
  • Vintage quality: Eden Valley experienced its second below average rainfall winter in a row. Cool November weather delayed flowering which coincided with warm, windy weather resulting in fewer grapes set. Warm, dry December and January days kept berries small until late January when 35mm of rain fell. Cooler than average day and night temperatures provided perfect ripening conditions, resulting in lovely texture, intense aromas and flavours.
  • Cellar guide: The Virgilius, while showing all the virtues of great Viognier as a young wine, will reward cellaring as it evolves in the bottle, with even more layers of flavour and aroma.
  • Last tasted: December 2022, Louisa Rose, Winemaker
  • Notes: Pale gold with green highlights. Intense aromas of white flowers, apricots, cardamom, white pepper and fresh ginger. Lifted ginger spice is layered on the palate with mineral, sourdough-like texture, apricots and almond savouriness. The hallmark Viognier texture of the palate is clearly evident in this wine. It is complex while at the same time shows purity and restraint that will unwind slowly in the glass and take the imbiber on a sensory journey.
