Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier 2012

Viognier is typically full bodied that pairs well with white meats, creamy sauces or spicy curries. The variety is sometimes known for being over the top or too in your face which means you need to be picky with the producer you look at. Yalamba have been working with the variety since 1980 which makes them one of the oldest in Australia. The 2012 version of this wine is brilliant.

This wine is a little more reserved than I was expecting but it still possessed bobbles of apricot skin, ground ginger, spice and honey. It is floral and inviting with a sweet creamy texture kicking in on the mid-palate. The palate weight is more in the medium to full end of the spectrum with the length just balling on. While I am not a fan of this variety in Australia, I would suck this down case by case as it is that good for the money.
