Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Soft pale straw in colour.

Aroma

Punchy, intense aromas of vibrant grape and musk stick tinged with lemon / lime and citrus blossom.

Palate

The wine shows a luscious and full palate, yet it is tempered with fresh, crisp acidity and citrus flavours. The finish is fine and long with excellent balance between sweetness and natural acidity, making it particularly pleasing with food.

Vintage Conditions

The 2009 vintage was characterised by some unusual weather conditions. Below average winter rainfall was followed by a relatively warm and dry spring, which ended with a cool and damp November and December, increasing sub-soil moisture. Warm summer conditions brought on an early vintage which was not dissimilar to 2008.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In 1971 Australia’s most successful and prestigious sparkling wine brand was established by Ballarat businessman Ian Home.

The name Yellowglen was given to the winery after a gold mine was discovered in the middle of what are now pinot noir vineyards.

The Yellowglen vineyard at Smythesdale was originally planted with red grape varieties destined for table wine. It soon became clear that this cool climate area would be far better suited to the production of world class sparkling wine. Sparkling wine was made for the first time at Yellowglen.In 1989 the first Yellowglen Vintage wine was released. It was made from the 1987 vintage and has gained a reputation for being one of Australia’s finest single vintage sparkling wines.In 1996 Yellowglen Yellow Sparkling was successfully launched, becoming an instant success.

Two Yellowglen classics were launched in 2005: Vintage Bella and Vintage Perle. Immediate success greeted Vintage Bella, whilst Vintage Perle remains an outstanding example of premium Australian Sparkling. Since launch, Perle has won multiple and consecutive awards, including eight golds at various prestigious wine shows nationally, and the coveted Thorp Trophy at the 2008 Macquarie Bank Sydney Royal Wine Show.

Yellowglen reaffirmed its position as a leader in sparkling with the 2007 launch of two exciting innovations: Jewel Yellow and Jewel Pink, Australia’s first ever dedicated lower calorie, lower alcohol sparkling wines.
