98 Points - Dave Brookes
Yalumba has had a long commitment to Viognier, with their flagship The Virgilius now standing as Australia's finest example. Another beautifully aromatic white, the 2021 Yalumba The Virgilius has loads of lifted white flowers, fresh apricot, ginger and spice on the nose.
Once again the trademark Viognier texture of the palate is clearly evident in this wine; incredibly complex with fruit purity and restraint that slowly opens with time in the glass. The Virgilius, while showing all the virtues of great Viognier as a young wine, will reward cellaring as it evolves in the bottle, with even more layers of flavours and aroma.
"98 Points. Pristine stone and citrus fruits, the pitch-perfect textural components and savoury nuance. What is apparent, for a great year, is the shimmering acidity, precision, detail and clarity; all cranked up a notch with this release and the wine's energy and drive are spot on. This is the best Virgilius I have seen thus far. Screw cap. 14% alc. Drink 2024 - 2029"- Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion 2024.
