Yalumba Y Series Unwooded Chardonnay
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Five generations and 167 years later Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over.
WINEMAKING: The Y Series Chardonnay grapes are picked across the flavor spectrum, from lively citrus flavors such as lemons and limes to peach and tropical flavors. We pick in this way to ensure that when blended, the wine is balanced with flavor and natural acidity. Pressed straight to fermentation, the juice is managed using a “hands off” approach. Indigenous yeasts initiate and complete fermentation, and once finished the wine is left on lees, with the lees kept in suspension to build complexity until blending and bottling.
TASTING NOTES: Pale lemon with green hues. The aromatics are reminiscent of blossoms, flint and ripe peaches. The wine has a savoury edge with flinty notes from the wild ferment. The palate is fine and creamy with a touch of nuttiness from the bâttonage. The fruit purity evolves with zingy citrus notes of lime and lemon. A refreshing, lip smacking acidity gives this wine lovely length and the finish is savoury and textural.
