Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A watermelon pink.

Aroma

The Yalumba Sangiovese Rosé has a delicate and fragrant nose highlighted by watermelon and cherry blossom with hints of lavender and cinnamon – typical of this exotic variety.

Palate

The wine is a light bodied, dry style of Rosé with flavours of watermelon, pomegranate and lavender. The finish to the wine is dry and refreshing with crisp acidity.

Food Matching

Try with char-grilled baby octopus.

Winemaking Note

Grapes were crushed and held on their skins for 12 hours to allow colour development in the juice. This was enough time to develop what we believe to be the perfect Y Rosé colour. The juice was drained, clarified and fermented cold to retain the natural characteristics of the Sangiovese grapes.

Red 5 Star Winery -James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Family-owned and run by Robert Hill Smith, Yalumba has long had a commitment to quality and has shown great vision in its selection of vineyard sites, new varieties and brands. It has always been a serious player at the top end of full-bodied (and full-blooded) Australian reds, and was the pioneer in the use of screwcaps. While its estate vineyards are largely planted to mainstream varieties, it has taken marketing ownership of viognier. However, these days its own brands revolve around the Y Series and a number of stand-alone brands across the length and breadth of SA. Yalumba has been very successful in building its export base. Exports to all major markets.
