The Yalumba Y Series of varietal wines express the lively personality and colourful 160 year history of the Hill Smith family of Yalumba, Australia’s oldest family owned winery.
These are fresh and flavoursome fruit-driven wine styles of quality and consistency, highlighting the true regional character of South Australia’s most renowned viticultural area. Confirming its reputation as Australia’s finest independent winemaker, Yalumba was named the 2011 winner of the President’s Medal by the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW.
Yalumba wines have received a number of impressive reviews in the Australian media:
"...flinty, savoury aromas...citrus and apple, and lime-blossom perfume too. The palate's light...tastes of fresh apple and pear fruits."
Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide 2012 (Yalumba Y Series Pinot Grigio 2011)
"A trophy-winner at the 2011 Alternative Varieties Wine Show...textbook young viognier - freshness, tangy texture, apricot perfume...amazing price, especially if discounted below $10."
Max Allen, Australian Gourmet Traveller, 23 January 2012 (Yalumba Y Series Viognier 2011)
Best white wine for 2011, under $20 -"..reason to cross sauvignon blanc off the drinking list. Aromatic, bright citrus, stone fruit and acid crunch."
