Y Series Viognier from Yalumba

Throughout its history, Yalumba has been willing to take a risk and back its judgement on a new variety, a new style, or a new direction, without losing sight of traditional strengths. Nowhere is this more evident than in the winery’s pioneering work in Australia with the rare and alluring Rhone grape variety, Viognier. The vine cuttings shown on the Yalumba Viognier label depict the Hill Smith family’s ability to think outside the square in the quest for quality. Such risktaking and daring to make a difference has put Yalumba ahead of the rest in the ever-changing world of wine.

Yalumba

“Founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family owned winery. Today, the winery is owned by fifth generation descendants, Robert & Sam Hill Smith and their families.
Yalumba is determined to create wines with genuine regional character, varietal flavour and individual personality; wines that say remarkable things about some of the world’s most remarkable wine regions.”

South Australia

South Australia is the largest wine producing state of Australia. It may be surprising to most that the Riverland region is the state’s largest grape producing area. The Barossa Valley is famed for its full-bodied, rich, ripe and generous reds. The Coonawarra is internationally renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon (and prized ‘terra rossa’ soils). Padthaway, McLaren Vale, and the Clare Valley all make major contributions, and the importance of the Adelaide Hills is rapidly increasing.
