2012 Yalumba “Y” South Australia Viognier

14.5% alc., $9.49, screwcap. Imported by Negociants USA Inc., Napa, CA. Yalumba has quite a reputation for Viognier, but this is their entry level offering. Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family owned winery. · Light golden color and clear in the glass. Marked reduction upon opening with strong burnt match aromas. Soft and pleasing on the palate with flavors of lemon curd, grilled pineapple, and mango. Much better two days later from a previously opened and re-corked bottle with no reduction evident and more vivid tropical fruit flavors, although still somewhat dilute. Score: 86.
