About

Year after year, Yangarra produces some stellar white wines. Their reds may get the lion's share of the press but for scintillating versions of Rhone white's, few can match the impeccable track record of this McLaren Vale powerhouse. This Viognier is widely considered one of the country's premier examples, renowned for displaying much more freshness and subtlety than the variety often shows. It's also made without any added sulphurs. It's picked early, wild yeast fermented and matured on its lees for several months, all of which result in a much more intriguing and restrained Viognier, without sacrificing any of the variety's famous flavour and oomph. As always, there is limited availability for this release - only a small amount is ever made. So if you want to the chance to try this wine, you'll have to act quick!

What it Tastes Like

The nose is really complex and layered, with aromas of dried apricots, honeysuckle, melons, almonds and ginger. The palate is definitely rich and unctuous without being at all oily, with layers of ripe fruit and some really nice mixed spices. It's the acidity though that separates this Viognier from so many, keeping it fresh and balanced.
