Medium-bodied and fruity and plentiful in pineapple, melon and grapefruit flavours with a trickle of honey. A crisp citrus acidity to finish.

Fruit driven, refreshing and subtle, with a dry, lingering finish, this is a Chardonnay of white nectarine, crunchy grapefruit, zesty lemon and faint pineapple nuances. The perfect thing to keep in the fridge for unexpected guests.Rating 89 -Tyson Stelzer, Wine 100 (March/April 2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw in colour.
The aromas are signified by nectarine and grapefruit with hints of nougat and cinnamon.
This is a medium bodied wine, built around fresh fruit, with lees texture. The palate has layers of grapefruit and nougat flavours. This is a finely textured wine that finishes with crisp acid that leaves a lasting impression of grapefruit sorbet.
Enjoy with a burger filled with grilled haloumi, grilled eggplant, fresh rocket and hummus.
Our unwooded Chardonnay style is captured by picking the grapes when the flavours are fresh and lively. For 2010 we have again picked the grapes 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. Also suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
This Unwooded Chardonnay depicts the Cape Barren Goose, a symbol of an endangered species. Over the years, many birds and animals have sought and found refuge in Yalumba’s sanctuary, land dedicated to native wildlife rehabilitation.
