Description

"Youthful and delightfully fruited, the bouquet shows rockmelon, nectarine and fresh pear aromas with a touch of white floral. The palate delivers juicy fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, elegantly framed by fine texture and refreshing acidity. Very likable and easy to enjoy. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2018

Straw with green highlights in colour, this wine has an appealing mix of fresh aromas including feijoa, orange blossom, nashi pear and wild honey with a floral lift of jasmine and rose petal. The palate is refreshing and lively. It opens with layers of baked apple and pear skin flavours that are complemented by succulent acidity and oatmeal texture from wild fermentation and lees aging.

The fruit for the Y Series Pinot Gris is sourced from premium viticultural regions of South Australia. Careful hand-picking allowed the grapes to be picked at optimal ripeness. Whole bunch pressing was used to minimise colour and tannin extraction from the pink skins, followed by oxidative handling to naturally remove any remaining colour. Fermentation proceeded on full solids, utilising yeast indigenous to the vineyard. The wines were then left on their lees until blending, giving the final wine complexity and finesse.

Yalumba's belief is that one good wine leads to another, which the Y Series was created with that in mind. This series represents a collection of iconic classics and exciting new varietals. Each authentically crafted with fruit from South Australia's most celebrated wine regions.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with pork fillet accompanied by apple and fennel; or vegetable san choy bow.
