Overview

The lead up to vintage 2014 was warm and mild; with rain late in 2013 setting the vines up nicely. In the new

year we experienced a string of hot weather events followed closely by unseasonably heavy rains. Despite

all of these challenges, both Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc stood strong, resulting in a wine of elegance,

flavour and beautiful balance

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright straw green in colour.

Aroma

Christobel’s shows classic Semillon aromas of honeydew melon, citrus blossom and cut grass complemented with notes of guava and green apple. Fine and refreshing.

Palate

The Semillon provides richness and depth with fruit flavours of lemongrass and lime while the Sauvignon Blanc offers layers of guava and a fine mineral finish.

Food matching

A wonderful fresh wine for current drinking with fresh seafood, salads and Asian-style cuisine.

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.
