Yalumba Y Series Pinot Grigio
Established on 184, family-owned and run by Robert Hill-Smith,Yalumba has a long commitment to quality and 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 a 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 South Australia.

Tasting note: Yalumba Y Series Pinot Grigio
Pale straw with green highlights in colour with aromas of fresh pear juice, white flowers and a hint of feijoa. Cinnamon and baked apple fill out the mid palate after the initial upfront fresh fruits of nashi pear and jasmine. Generous fruit length is complemented by a rich mouth-feel and a creamy lingering finish.
