Y' Series Riesling
The Yalumba Y Series of quality wines salutes our proud history of viticulture and winemaking in South Australia. Significantly, the individual icons on each label reflect the labours, inventive thinking and aspirations of all at Yalumba.
The Riesling depicts the olive tree. It is said that where grapes thrive and prosper so too do the olive trees. When you consider the grape growing regions of South Australia, this adage is very true.
Aroma: Apple blossom, musk, orange sherbet and fresh cut pear.
Palate: Great fruit weight and creaminess with overriding flavours of Meyer lemons and a moreish finish.
Enjoy with: Fritto misto
The season began with above average temperatures. Coupled with a very windy spring during flowering this led to lower crop loads. The warm and dry January and February was suddenly halted by 100mm of rain in 24 hours on Valentine’s Day. The rain was followed by moderate temperatures that caused ripening to slow down; this resultant long ripening period helped develop pristine flavours in the Barossa Riesling.
