Yalumba Y Series Viognier 2014 : Wine Wednesday Review

Yalumba Viognier

Yalumba Y Series
2014
Viognier
South Australia
Price: $12.99

I was looking for a wine to go pair with my Crab and Spinach Lasagna. So I ventured to my local wine store and asked for some suggestions. Ok, I asked for suggestions but I actually had something in mind. I didn’t want a Chardonnay (Don’t ask my why. I just didn’t). I wanted something different, like a Viognier or a Vouvray.

The Yalumba Y Series Viognier 2014 is pale yellow with green hues. The nose has citrus and floral notes, backed by honey. This Viognier is dry. The palate revealed citrus peels that were rounded out by the flavor of apricots. It has a full body for a white wine.

The Yalumba Y Series Viognier 2014 paired well with the Crab and Spinach Lasagna. The citrus notes cut through the creamy sauce, but didn’t overwhelm the dish. I’m definitely picking this up again.
