Yalumba Chardonnay Unwooded Y Series rrp15.20 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The unwooded chardonnay style is captured by picking the grapes when the flavours are fresh and lively, and the vineyards chosen for making this wine are those possessing lifted tropical flavours. For 2007 grapes were again picked early in the ripeness spectrum to create a crisp and “food-friendly” wine. Cool processing and fermentation were used to retain the freshness of the grapes, and the wine was allowed some time on its yeast lees after blending to build some richness of flavour. The Yalumba Y Series Unwooded Chardonnay displays tropical aromas of white peach, fresh melon, pineapple and lifted lemon zest. On the palate lingering melon and peach flavours are complemented by a rich creamy texture, some slatey grapefruit tartness and a mouth-watering long 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.

Y Series Unwooded Chardonnay 2008 - Yalumba : Y Series Unwooded Chardonnay 2008 - Weißwein von YalumbaDieser komplexe Chardonnay wirkt sehr frisch und wurde nicht im Holzfass ausgebaut. Das Glas wird von einem brillianten Strohgelb erfüllt. Die Nase erwartet ein Bukett aus tropischen Früchten, die an Zitrus, Ananas und Melone erinnern. Dazu gesellt sich ein leichter Muskatton. Am Gaumen spürt man eine wahre Fruchtexplosion aus Melone und Pfirsich. Der Y Series Unwooded Chardonnay 2008 präsentiert sich am Gaumen angenehm weich mit einer enorm cremigen Textur. Das Finale wird von klaren Zitronennoten und Zitronenschale geprägt.Dieser Weißwein passt zu kräftigeren Fischgerichten, Scampi in Knoblauchsauce oder zu Salat mit Filetstreifen.Weingut: YalumbaLand: AustralienRegion: Eden ValleyRebsorte: 100% ChardonnayInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 12,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,1 g/lRestsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: 2 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 6-8 °C Weißwein > Australien > Eden Valley
