The Y Series, Viognier, from an Australian winemaker with history
Australia, South Australia, Yalumba Vignerons, Viognier, The Y Series, 2014

Now five generations of wine making from the oldest wine house in Australia, based in Angaston in South Australia. This Viognier is part of The Y Series, where a range of 12 white, red and rosé wines are symbolised by a drawing, characterising the many values of Yalumba team, such as this Viognier with vine cuttings, the Sauvignon Blanc with a whiting fish and the Tempranillo with a bull. A wine maker to follow!

The winery dates back to 1849, when English immigrant William Smith planted his first vines. Taking part in the goldrush for a few years, he returned to be able to buy his own 30 acres of land. Yalumba started, just in the Barossa valley, making his award winning wines from 1858 onwards, a trend that has not changed since. The winery grew a lot and is the biggest family owned one in Barossa.
