Yalumba The Virgilius Viognier 2010

Good colour for age; Yalumba moved before the heatwave in picking its best grapes; this is a powerful, full-bodied wine with black fruits, licorice and tannins (plus oak) all clamouring to be heard. A different vintage, to be sure, but doesn't have the finesse of the FDR1A. Both wines deserved better quality corks. Rating: 96 Points; James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013, 17 July 2012

Yalumba's barrel-fermented flagship introduces an exotic ginger note to the varietal apricot character. This is a sumptuous but restrained, distinctive and delightful wine to savour slowly. Classy. Rating: 96 points; Chris Shanahan, The Canberra Times, 19 June 2013

Much Australian Viognier is planted in the wrong place and/or picked at the wrong time. The results can range from neutral, sultana-like dry whites to heavy, oily, unpalatable beverages. No such problems here. This wine offers subtle apricot aromas and flavours and a creamy, beautifully textured palate with excellent acidity. This is a world-class Viognier. Rating: Outstanding. Lester Jesberg, Winewise, March 2013

A rare example of this variety with understatement showing subtlety within its apricot and peach aromas. The palate has finesse rather than oily obviousness with long flavours and marvelous restraint rather than gluggy softness. The leader in this variety. Rating: 5 Stars; Robert Geddes MW, Australian Wine Vintages 2012

Yalumba Y Series Pinot Grigio 2013

A stylish, rather complete and genuinely varietal pinot gris that puts a number of significantly more expensive examples of its kind to shame. Vibrant and brightly lit with a spicy cinnamon-like scent of apple, pear and creamy, leesy undertones lifted by white flowers. It reveals a long and tightly controlled palate underpinned by a fine dustiness. Its pristine core of moderately juicy flavour extends towards a clean and savoury finish with plenty of persistence. Jeremy Oliver, Gourmet Traveller Wine, February 2013

Yalumba Y Series Vermentino 2011

A pale green straw in colour, the Yalumba Y Series Vermentino 2011 has prominent aromas of jasmine and white nectarine, complemented by lashes of cumquat and sandalwood. The palate is fleshy and almost salty with grapefruit acidity and a textured finish, making this a very refreshing wine. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

The heat-loving white grape vermentino that thrives in such sunny Mediterranean locales as Provence and Sardinia is now proving itself to be a winner in Australia's warmer regions. Plantings have been frenetic over the last few years as winemakers twig to the variety's snapping-fresh, citrusy flavours - so deliciously captured in this wine. Yalumba have big plans for vermentino, too; it will join the company's popular, well-priced Y range later in the year.  Max Allen, Gourmet Traveller Wine

Best white wine for 2011, under $20 - "This year, vermentino made an impact on our daily drinking, largely through accessible, tasty, summery wines such as Yalumba's Y Series 2011 Vermentino ($14.95). Here is a reason to cross sauvignon blanc off the drinking list. Aromatic, bright citrus, stone fruit and acid crunch - it's a fine example of this emerging style. Jeni Port, The Age

Quite a bit of noise about this variety with the Riverland looking to establish itself as a centre. Yalumba among the players though also sourcing grapes from Langhorne Creek. This cheapie is cleverly balanced, showing white apple and pear fruits with a dash of lemon gelato zing. A summertime special. 92 points; Tony Love, taste.com.au, Top 100 Wines, 

The growth of interest in Italian grape varieties during the past 25 years or so has led to some interesting Australian wines. Some of the more neutral varieties of recent times have been priced a bit higher than they ought, which is at odds with where they fit in the gastronomic equation of their Italian homeland. Things are changing and wines such as this Vermentino from the South Australian Riverland are addressing the value question admirably. It's a very appetising drop. Lemon, floral and wasy scents introduce it in charming style and a mouthful reveals a pleasantly light, soft palate of attractive intensity, a good persistence and a lip-smacking, dry finish. Moreish. Pair with shellfish salad and crisp fried calamari. Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age - Epicure (Aus), 1 November 2011

It might be Australia’s oldest family-owned company but Yalumba is renowned for innovation and, with its own nursery, is a font of experimentation with alternative varieties like Italy’s Vermentino. This expressive white, the first Y Series Vermentino, is sourced from Bob and Faye Reichstein’s and Mark Trenwith’s vineyards in the Riverland township of Renmark. With little sign of having just been bottled the previous day, it showed good typicity with a cut and thrust of citrus zest to a subtly textured, nutty palate edged with dried honey and basil.

Yalumba Y Series Viognier 2013

Pale straw in colour, the Y Series Viognier has aromas of honeysuckle, poached quinces and mandarin peel so evocative of this exotic variety. The palate is rich in texture and body thanks to wild yeast fermentation and ageing on lees, yet retains a refreshing quality that make it a pleasure to drink. Flavours to be found on the palate include grapefruit peel, lemongrass and stonefruit, while the texture adds layers of fruit persistence.
