Yalumba The Y Series Viognier

This is not only the finest Y Series Viognier ever made, it is the greatest viognier with a street price under $10 that I have tasted from anywhere in the world. Ever. Is this thanks to a freak cool season or to Yalumba’s viognier genius permeating ever lower in its portfolio with each passing vintage? Whatever it is, there’s no mistaking its cool spice of white pepper and fennel, its accurate apricot, apricot kernel and lemon zest flavour and its impeccably textured mouthfeel. Wow! $9.50 at Dan’s.
