Overview

This 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. Fermentation by natural or ‘wild’ yeast, naturally present in the vineyard has helped shape this wine; think minerality, grapefruit and pineapple flavours.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale lemon with green hues.

Aroma

The aromatics are reminiscent of blossoms, flint and ripe peaches.

Palate

The wine has a savoury edge with flinty notes from the wild ferment. The palate is fine and creamy with a touch of nuttiness from the bâttonage. The fruit purity evolves with zingy citrus notes of lime and lemon. A refreshing, lip smacking acidity gives this wine lovely length and the finish is savoury and textural.

Food Matches

Try with pan fried haloumi with lemon and parsley or chickpea, zucchini and carrot pancakes with a green mango salad.

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.
