Cracka Review

Pinot Grigio is a great summertime drink due to it's fresh and zippy nature, and this offering from ever dependable Yalumba is great value at the price. There's plenty of apples and pears in this pup, along with hints of ginger spice and a touch of creaminess. The palate is lighter-bodied and frisky, with juicy pear flavours, refreshing acidity and a velvety finish. Grab a couple of bottles for that weekend BBQ with your mates, it'll go down a treat!

Winemaker's Notes

Here at Yalumba we believe that one good wine leads to another. The Y Series was created with that belief in mind. The Y Series represents a collection of iconic classics and exciting new varietals. Each authentically crafted with fruit from South Australia’s most celebrated wine regions. We hope that the bottle you hold in your hand right now marks the beginning of a delicious journey.

Aromas begin with nashi pear, baked apple and orange blossom, finishing with wild honey and feijoa. The palate is a succulent mix of the baked apple and feijoa with a fresh cream and poached pear mid-palate, and a tight cinnamon and oatmeal finish. Lingering orange pannacotta completes the wine.

Enjoy with pork fillet, apple and fennel.

Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2011 Vintage) says
Creamy/yeasty stonefruit nose and a very Italian, savoury, flinty varietal palate with lovely balance and texture.
WINESTATE Volume 34 - Special Edition 2011
Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
The nose here is a little shrouded in flinty, savoury aromas; below that, there's citrus and apple, and lime-blossom perfume too. The palate's light, bright and crisp, and tastes of fresh apple and pear fruits.
The Good Wine Guide 2012
Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
Not since De Bortoli Windy Peak 2008 has any sub-$15 grigio looked more refined than this. No corners have been cut in the recipe, and oh how it shows! Whole bunch pressing preserves its luscious poached pear generosity and taut lemon and grapefruit crispness, while wild yeast fermentation and aging on lees build texture and mouthfeel, carrying long and linear through the finish.
Wine Taste - Edition 52 2012
Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
There's real complexity and interest here. Apricot kernel and hints of bran, stone fruits round out the edges, orange and lemon zest provide structure while mixed spice adds interest. The finish is refreshingly crisp and dry.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Has personality and flavour; pear and a little citrus, with a strong mineral component coming through on the palate; good texture and life on the finish.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Spice, herb, apple and pear aromas; a relatively delicate but well-balanced palate.
