Cracka Review

Yalumba strike again with this value Riesling that has a kiss of sweetness. Lemons, limes and pineapples rise from the glass, along with hints of stone fruits. The palate is light-bodied, smooth and gentle, with juicy citrusy flavours, friendly acidity, a talcy texture, and a fresh, softish finish that will satisfy the fussiest palate.

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.

Winemaker Comments: The grapes were harvested in the cool of the night to help retain the lovely aromatics that Riesling is famous for. They were then crushed to a skin contact vessel for 45 minutes to increase flavour. The free run juice is then drained from the skins as well as some light pressings to a tank for wild fermentation. After minimal winemaking intervention, the wine is stabilised and filtered ready for bottling.

Tasting Notes: The Y Series Riesling is clear straw in colour, showing wild and exotic aromas of white flowers, bath salts and Meyer lemon. The flavour of grapefruit dominates the palate; a silky and textural wine, yet zesty and refreshing with the classic mineral Riesling finish.

Enjoy with fried haloumi and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Vegan friendly.

2016 Yalumba Y Series Riesling

Expert Reviews

Huon Hooke (2016 Vintage) says
Light, bright yellow-green hue and an ultra-fresh, vibrant, ripe and accessible bouquet - pleasingly upfront and intense, floral and classic. The palate is intense and refined, powerful and delicate at the same time. The finish is long and dry with a lip-smacking trace of grip adding to its authority. Amazing value for money.

This is a delightful, fresh, clean, youthful Riesling of good intensity, with lively lemon citrus flavours, that finishes dry and zesty.

This is one heck of a good riesling for the money - it's hard to see any other white wine made at this level of quality delivered at this bargain price point. If you're not sure, take a punt - this has a wealth of fruit flavours, from white peach to citrus, delivered as a smooth, soft and crisp style.

Attractive citrus and tropical fruit aromas; a soft, full-flavoured palate with some canned pineapple notes. Very good value.

This is a light, elegant and tightly structured riesling, very much in the Yalumba Y series mould.

Zesty, limey palate; concentrated and powerful but not coarse; passionfruit and grapefruit.

Another delicious riesling from the production line pumping them out at Yalumba. This is yet another example of why riesling just keeps getting the accolades. Here is a wine that is fresh, bright, vibrant, a little bit citrussy, a little bit softÑI mean really, must I go on? This is white wine that makes you smile knowing that you have bought a case of the stuff at well under S10 a bottleÑclever, clever you.
