Description

  • Feijoa
  • Nashi pear
  • Crisp acidity

"Pristine and elegantly expressed, the wine shows white flesh peach, fresh pear, lemon peel and floral aromas on the nose, followed by a brightly expressed palate displaying juicy fruit flavours backed by crisp acidity, finishing long and very tasty. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2020

Straw with green highlights in colour. An appealing mix of fresh aromas including feijoa, orange blossom, nashi pear and wild honey. There is also a floral lift full 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 with a hint of cinnamon on the finish.

Cool and dry conditions during Winter and Spring led to a late start to the season and good canopy growth. With above average temperatures in December, this early growth was critical for maintaining the health of the vines. Cooler conditions prevailed in January and into February with the mild days and cool nights contributing to wonderful freshness and acidity at harvest.

The Y Series is a collection of iconic classics and exciting new varietals. Each wine is authentically crafted with fruit from South Australia’s most celebrated wine regions. At Yalumba they believe that one good wine leads to another. The Y Series was created with that belief in mind. They look forward to sharing their love of wine with you as you explore the Y Series.

Food Pairing: This wine drinks perfectly with Pork fillet with apple and fennel or Vegetable sung choi bao.

Any “Y” series is decent value, so this gets a thumbs up too
