The Y Series Riesling. Yalumba 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet lime, lemon and even pineapple aromas greet the nose along with a gentle sweet, polleny, fennel top note. This is a touch soft in the mouth, supple and broad with not a lot of height. The flavors show hints of peach accenting the lime pith and apple notes, but there is something vaguely ripe underlying it all. There's some nice freshness on the back end, along with a touch of sugar that helps to counterbalance the raw acidity. This is just a bit off balance. 84pts

The Yalumba Wine Company:
Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life.

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch "Yalumba" – aboriginal for "all the land around". Six generations and more than 150 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. Yalumba wines have a style all of their own and each have been influenced by a diverse range of elements. Elements Yalumba likes to call 'the controllables', such as the Yalumba Vine Nursery and on-site cooperage – as well as other factors that cannot be emulated by any other winery. Yalumba’s history and tradition combined with a reputation for innovation.

One of my favorites, mainly because of the price tag. Sweet with a little effervescent... not sure if that's meant to be there, but it works. Doesn't stand up to anything German, the body just isn't there, but a great cheap bottle to share with friends.

Showing classic varietal character, the Yalumba Y Riesling displays aromas of grapefruits, limes and lemon peel with a delicate floral overtone. The palate is lively and refreshing with generous grapefruit flavors and a hint of tropical fruit on the finish.

If you’re in the mood for a drier style Riesling, that’s not from the motherland Germany, this warm climate Riesling is for you. Dry on the palate it boasts ripe peach and yellow apple flavors with a mouth filling texture.
