Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Yalumba Y Series Merlot has an inviting crimson color. Classic varietal aromas of red currants, violets and eucalypt lead to a medium bodied palate with flavors ranging from spiced fruit cake to black cherry with very fine, velvet tannins. The generous fruit flavors give the wine a fleshy, supple appeal that the variety is so well known for. Serve with Kangaroo fillets, a red currant reduction and sweet potato mash.
