Rymill The Yearling Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

A savvy from Coonawarra, well it’s not the first region we think of but it’s actually fairly cool and winemakers believe that the Sauvignon Blanc from the area is a sure bet. The Yearling is made with estate grown fruit producing a rich and zesty wine that is ideal with a table heaving with seafood. There’s a floral nose with subtle grassy herbs, before intense fruit flavours that are balanced by natural acids and a riveting texture. It’s zesty and crisp with a core of citrus and some subtle spice.

Winemaker's Notes

Fresh from the Rymill Coonawarra stable, the Yearling is a zesty Coonawarra Sauvignon Blanc. Made from estate-grown fruit, this crisp and appealing wine is absolutely perfect to enjoy now.

Appearance: Pale straw with bright green hues.

Nose: Lifted and bright aromas of passionfruit, fresh cut lime and paw paw with subtle hints of honeysuckle.

Palate: Smooth and textural palate with lashings of passionfruit, honeydew and rock melon. These punchy tropical fruit flavours meld together beautifully with grapefruit, fresh lime and flinty notes which continue right through to the lengthy and zesty finish.

Food: Serve alfresco with grilled prawns marinated in lime or with fresh crab stirred through spaghetti with a squeeze of lemon juice.

Cellaring: Enjoy this wine whilst it is youthful.

Alcohol: 12.5%

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
The vintage has lifted this wine above the usual pleasant but unremarkable level for Coonawarra sauvignon blanc, with a vibrant and seamless flow of tropical, citrus and herbal flavours, tropical the major component. Top value.

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
Beautifully struck freshness on the nose here: passionfruit, white peach and gooseberry, some faint grassy edges, but really driving the fruit first. Crisp acid leads the palate in, building passionfruit, pear and tinned-peach flavour. Soft, easy and generous.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
A notably fragrant and flowery bouquet foreshadows a crisp, lively and expressive palate with a juicy mix of citrus and passionfruit flavours.

Herbaceous nose with a hint of pineapple. Tastes sweet and citrusy, with a lovely crisp finish.
