Yalumba Bush Vine 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This Chardonnay is sourced from the Eden Valley and features the use of indigenous vineyard yeast, or 'wild’ yeast in the fermentation process, which are present on the on the grapes at time of harvest. The many individual yeast strains each participate in the fermentation process by building layers of complexity and finesse into the wine. Palate structure is further enhanced through extended lees contact and regular lees stirring after completion of fermentation. Approximately 40% of the blend was fermented and matured in new, one and two year-old fine-grained French barriques which provide additional, fragrance and texture to the wine. The colour of this wine is pale gold with green tints. The nose displays lifted citrus zest and fresh quince with subtle notes of white nougat and toasted almonds. Finely structured and seamless, the palate is all about texture. Creamy nougat, citrus and hints of white nectarine combine elegantly with the subtle nuances of French oak and a restrained citrus acidity for a lingering finish.

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.
