Yalumba The Virgilius 2010

The Virgilius is the best barrels from the oldest planting of Viognier in the Eden Valley.

Yalumba The Virgilius 2010

My god this is full on yet elegant and restrained at the same time. The palate is so even and persistent with nothing out of place at all. The full bodied flavours are of honeysuckle, orange blossom, cardamom, hints of mandarin and ginger nut bisects is just perfect. What separates this from the normal over blown much is the acidity which leaves the saliva train going overdrive, a magnificent creamy palate feel and the restraint of the flavours. It is a beautiful exercise in art.
