WineScores' Review

Classic, texture, aromatic.

At 170 years old, Yalumba is the oldest family owned winery in Australia, home to one of the largest viticulture nurseries and the only winery cooperage in the country.
Yalumba was also the first to commercially plant Viognier in the Barossa Valley in 1980 and for many wine lovers, this wine was their first taste of the Viognier variety.
It's a popular wine and an even more appealing price now and it suggests peach marmalade, ginger biscuits and loads of exotic spice and lime. Good freshness here with plenty of phenolic texture to add weight and freshness. It trails mineral, lime, spice and herbal flavours.
A delicious partner to spicy fish tacos or exotic Moroccan dishes.

Second Review: February 2021Peach marmalade and lemon meringue, toasted spice, fresh ginger and honey aromas roll onto a palate that is luscious. Quince, spice and stone fruit flavours abound. It is weighty and slick with a long fresh finish.

Pairs Great with Gone Crackers Roasted Shallot & Herb

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
