Our unwooded Chardonnay style is captured by picking the grapes when the flavours are fresh and lively, and the vineyards chosen for making this wine are those possessing lifted tropical flavours.
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.
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw green in colour.
The 2011 Yalumba Y Series Unwooded Chardonnay offers enticing aromas of white peach, grapefruit and nougat – a complex interplay showing balance between ripe fruit and complexity from lees ageing.
The palate is distinctly medium bodied with layers of white peach and nougat flavours, racy acidity and a persistent finish.
Chardonnay like this should be enjoyed with tempura vegetables.
