Riesling Barossa South Australia
The label of Y Series Riesling shows an olive tree, the folklore being that wherever olives thrive, so too does good wine. Harvests of the most highly aromatic Riesling grapes, exhibiting crisp varietal definition, refined fruit character and chalky lime acidity, are collated for the construct of a splendid Riesling wine. Yalumba Y is lively and refreshing with bright citrus flavours before culminating on a zesty, moreish finish. Enjoy with good friends alongside your favourite recipe of king george whiting.
