A pale straw with green tinges, the Yalumba Y Series Riesling 2010 is a light to medium bodied style of wine. Aromas of fresh apple blossom and grapefruit are complemented by subtle hints of cinnamon, paw paw and lavender. The fine palate shows flavors of lemons, lime peel and grapefruit. The light body of the wine is enhanced by a juicy acidity and fruit-tingle-like persistence. A wine to enjoy with simple flavors, such as grilled whiting accompanied by a squeeze of lemon. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
The Y Series wines of Yalumba are in the riesling, viognier, sangiovese rose, shiraz viognier, merlot and cabernet sauvignon categories of this book. Mind you, riesling has always been an important part of Yalumba's business. Thus there is no doubt some very good grapes from the right regions were at the genesis of this delicious wine with its flowery bouquet and gentle marriage of tropical and citrus fruits. Ready, set, go and twist the cap right now.
