Yalumba's Unwooded Chardonnay style is captured by picking the grapes when the flavors are fresh and lively, and the vineyards chosen for making this wine are those possessing lifted tropical flavors.
For 2007, they again picked the grapes early in the ripeness spectrum to create a crisp and food-friendly wine. Cool processing and fermentation were used to retain the freshness of the grapes, and the wine was allowed some time on its yeast lees after blending to build some richness of flavor.
The Yalumba Y Series Unwooded Chardonnay displays tropical aromas of white peach, fresh melon, pineapple and lifted lemon zest. On the palate, lingering melon and peach flavors are complemented by a rich creamy texture, some slatey grapefruit tartness and a mouth-watering, long finish.
