June 29th, 2012 | Posted by admin in WINE

Yalumba winery from Australia makes many different varietals of both red and white wines.  Viognier, a grape of French origin is an interesting and unique grape.  Yalumba makes several bottlings of Viognier.  This is their “Y Series” and for $11-13 is an excellent value.

Viognier is often characterized by aromas of melon, peach, and pear and is one of the more floral accented grapes that you will have the pleasure of encountering.  On the palate you’ll notice hints of lemon zest in this refreshing and juicy white wine.  It pairs well with fish, chicken, summer salads (non-vinegar based), and many light appetizers.
