Description

"Beautifully fruited and elegantly lifted, the bouquet shows nectarine, rockmelon, fresh pear and floral aromas, followed by a vibrant palate that is light and refreshing. It is immediately appealing with pristine fruit flavours, finishing long and lively" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2019

Pale straw in colour with green highlights. Aromas of fresh pear juice with white flowers, a hint of feijoa and cinnamon stick. Initially the palate opens with Nashi pear and jasmine, followed by baked apple and cinnamon through the mid-palate. Generous fruit flavours are complemented by a rich mouth-feel and a creamy, lingering finish.

The fruit for the Y Series Pinot Gris is sourced from premium viticultural regions of South Australia. Selective 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.
