Yalumba Samuel’s Collection Eden Valley Viognier 2020

Eden Valley, South Australia, AustraliaSamuel's Collection honours Yalumba's founder, Samuel Smith, and this viognier comes off 11 blocks from 7 separate vineyards, all native fermented and matured for 10 months in older French barriques and puncheons. The wood imparts a savoury suppleness to this fragrant, full bodied white, layering lush white peach, ripe honeydew, fleshy apricot, jasmine, lime pith across a cold cream palate, seasoned with finely rasped exotic spices. With everything knit together so well, this ample wine retains an air of finesse and subtlety, words not usually associated with the grape. A lovely wine to crack for fragrant Thai cuisine.Tasted: 05 May 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 32.00 BCLS Producer: Yalumba Wine CompanyDistributors: Negociants International
