Yalumba "Y Series" Dry Riesling Australia Barossa Riesling Yalumba 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Gentle processing of the grapes, and the use of only the clearest juice, followed by a cool even fermentation, ensures the fresh flavours of the variety are preserved in the final wine. This wine is a blend of fruit from Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Adjacent to each other, these two regions make up the Barossa. The warmer Barossa Valley produces wines that have richness of flavour, while the cooler Eden Valley provides elegant and lifted aromatics. The Barossa region is renowned for its quality riesling wines. A generous yet elegant, light-bodied wine with aromas of grapefruit, apple blossom and hints of bath salts. The palate is clean and refreshing showing grapefruit and lemon peel flavours.

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.

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.
