The Story

WINEMAKING/VITICULTURE: Located on the Murray River at Loxton the Barich Family have a beautiful organic vineyard produces some wonderful Viognier. They have been joined since the 2011 Vintage by the Bassham Family of Barmera who have been producing Viognier of a high quality for Yalumba for some time but have only recently been Certified Organic. Meticulous hand detailed work in both vineyards ensures that the grapes are in perfect condition when they are picked. This wine is made with Organic Winemaking techniques with very little winemaking intervention.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS: 2012 saw average temperatures through spring and early summer with minimal rain fall, allowing the vines to grow with healthy balanced canopies and good fruit set. Cool conditions through January to March allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly producing a wine with outstanding depth of flavour.
