Yalumba, Organic Collection Viognier, South Australia
About the Wine: The aromas are complex and funky. Lifted honeysuckle, lemon rind, apricot and peach aromas mix with hints of cashew and fresh pineapple. Rich and textured, the palate is luscious with layers of spice, citrus, and apricot, showing the distinct varietal Viognier characters that persist through to the lovely fresh finish. Pair with red duck curry, pad Thai, or red lentil dhal with spinach.
