At Yalumba we believe that one good wine leads to another. The Y Series was created with that belief in mind. The Y Series represents a collection of iconic classics and exciting new varietals. Each authentically crafted with fruit from South Australia’s most celebrated wine regions.
About the Vineyard
Firstly, the fruit is sourced from two blocks in the Barossa Valley. Tony Brooks’ Gomersal vineyard, planted on rich, red brown earth over limestone gives the wine depth and length. Kevin Burgemeister’s Penrice vineyard sits on brown, sandy loam giving the wine perfume and freshness. The second region is the Riverland, this adds brightness and vibrancy to the wine. Finally our Wrattonbully vineyards, from Terra Rossa country, red sandy loam over limestone, gives the wine a powerful depth of flavor coupled with a mineral texture.
Once picked, the grapes are crushed and left in contact with their skins for between one and three hours to obtain the desired color. The juice is then run off the skins into a stainless steel tank to undergo wild fermentation.
Rose gold in color, with exotic aromas of white nectarine, alpine strawberries, lilly pilly and pannacotta. A wine of great drinkability; white fleshed stone fruit and blood orange flavors overlay the silky mid palate that leads to a refreshing citrus finish.
Enjoy with dill and mint dolmades or fish tacos with cabbage slaw and chipotle sauce.
