Winery Tasting Notes

Coolour

Vibrant crimson in colour with a magenta hue.

Aroma

The 2017 Y Series Merlot bursts from the glass with strong notes of fresh, just picked black fruits; the nose is brooding with hints of fruit pastilles. Dark chocolate and a touch of dried fruit add to the welcoming aromatics; this is an expressive and vivacious Merlot.

Palate

The palate is generous, round and succulent. The mid palate shows lovely synergy between the fruit and tannins. The wine has hints of exotic spices and finishes fresh and lively.

Food Matches

Perfect with a traditional Cassoulet; or a Kabuli chickpea, spinach and red onion pasta.

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.
