"Varietally pure and fabulously fragrant, the wine show rockmelon, apricot, fig and white floral aromas on the nose, followed by a beautifully rounded palate displaying excellent fruit weight and flow, leading to a lengthy silky finish. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2020

Corn silk yellow in colour with green hues. White flowers and honeysuckle dominate the aromas with ginger and five spice to finish. The white flowers and ginger lead into a creamy mid-palate with a silky textural finish. The wild fermentation and lees aging gives the wine an extra level of complexity on the palate that belies its age.

Cool, dry conditions during winter and spring led to a late season start with good canopy growth. This was greatly appreciated as the canopy was able to shade the grapes from above average temperatures in December. January and February were cooler with 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 we believe that one good wine leads to another. The Y Series was created with that belief in mind. We look forward to sharing our love of wine with you as you explore the Y Series.

Food Pairing: Harissa chicken or crispy rice pancakes with potato and chickpeas.
