Yalumba The Virgilius Viognier 2014
The Virgilius is Yalumba’s most distinguished Viognier – a wine that demonstrates power complemented by restraint. As Yalumba’s most premium and enchanting white wine, it is adored by wine lovers searching for a unique wine that advances beyond the more conventional offering.
Virgilius is a barrel selection. Primarily the way it works out is that a lot comes from the first vineyard Yalumba planted to viognier in 1980. Tightness and potential are the main considerations for this wine. Quite a reserved bouquet but plenty going on with white flowers, chamomile scents, faint stone fruit, walnut kernel. Unwinds. Squeaky textured, intensly coiled, trim, elegant and firmly structured with a core of juicy, sweetish fruit. Such elegance and length. Close your eyes and it’s fine red wine. Beautiful, sleek drinking, with plenty for those seeking complexity of cellar time. Rating: 95 Points; Drink: 2015-2024; Price: $48; Date Tasted: May 2015 Alcohol: 13.5%; Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
