Yalumba Y Series Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Grown in some of South Australia’s pre-eminent viticultural regions, the Yalumba Y Series Sauvignon Blanc has both freshness and complexity. The wine shows true expression of place with the use of only indigenous yeast, no oak and minimal winemaker intervention. 


The yellow blossoms on our Sauvignon Blanc label represent the biodiversity that helps keep the soils and vineyard ecosystem well-balanced and healthy.
 

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

About the Vineyard

For this wine, we source Sauvignon Blanc grapes from multiple regions across South Australia, including Adelaide Hills, Wrattonbully and Barossa. Sites vary considerably, adding their own dimension to the overall flavor profile.

Wine Production

Grapes arrived during the cool of the night, they were gently crushed into tank and given 12 hours skin maceration prior to draining and pressing. Wild yeasts then initiated and completed fermentation. Once complete, the wine was left on its lees and given regular bâttonage to build complexity until blending.

Tasting Notes

Very pale straw with green hues. This Sauvignon Blanc displays lively aromas of freshly cut grass, grapefruit, Granny Smith apples and white blossom with nuances of fresh herbs and candied lemon rind. The palate is vibrant and bursting with life and zest. There is an increased depth and generosity of fruit from the wild ferment and bâttonage. Flavors of lemon drop and passion fruit butter abound, with zesty acidity. This is an easy drinking and enjoyable wine that shows all the hallmarks of fruit driven Australian Sauvignon Blanc; line and length with a generosity of flavor.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with a citrus dressed BBQ calamari salad or crispy lemon tofu.
