Anthony Rose, The Independent - 2 Feb 2002 (2001 vintage)
One of Oz's most attractively forward viogniers.
Superplonk 2002 (2000 vintage)
... a full-bodied dry white from Yalumba with a pear-like scent, and ripe, peachy fruitiness.
Anthony Rose, The Independent - 5 Feb 2000 (1998 vintage)
If you like the perfumed, white-peach character of the viognier grape, but can resist the temptation to trade up to .. Condrieu, try the Oxford Landing Limited Release Viognier, a sophisticated Australian version.

|A star bright appearance. Powerful fruit aromas and ‘its taste was as good as the smell’. A wine with some complex flavours and a long finish. Yalumba are demonstrating consistency in their wine making, especially with the difficulties posed by this grape.|
'Enjoying Viognier' (2001 vintage)
Light gold in color, this wine has a restrained nose of apple blossoms and minerals along with peach and citrus nuances. Medium to full bodied, it delivers plenty of creamy, peach, and sweet apricot flavors. The wine is well structured with good acidity for food. It has a good finish with a sweet, dried-apricot finish. Although not at all complex, its attraction lies in its simplicity. This wine went well with the fish and would probably go just as well with a mildly spicy curry. You might also serve it as an aperitif.
TableWine (2001 vintage)
Light clear yellow colour
Creamy, oaky nose
Initial fizziness, moving on the tongue, envigorating.
Chewy apricot with some bitterness, wonderful balance (roundish flavour not over the top)
Reasonable aftertaste, soft warm feel
Good to drink on its own
'Enjoying Viognier' (2000 vintage)
Tropical fruits, orange blossom and lychees abound in this rich, silky, luscious wine. The viognier richness is balanced with some refreshing acidity. Food Accompaniment: lobster, crab, Indian food.

Yalumba was one of the first wineries to grow and produce Viognier and their experience shines through in this wine, which has a nose and palate of citrus, lychee and orange blossom.
Compendium Wines (2000 vintage)
A very fragrant Viognier with great wafts if peach and melon fruits. Dry with balanced acidity, strong peach flavours and some spice. Great value.
