Winemaker's Notes:

Yalumba Y Series Riesling 2005 is pale straw in colour with green hues. The wine shows classic varietal character with aromas of lime juice and lemon peel, with delicate blossom overtones. The palate is lively and refreshing with generous lemon and grapefruit flavours, and a hint of ripe tropical fruits on the finish.
 
"The Kabinett-styled 2005 Riesling reveals lemon, lime, and under-ripe apricot characteristics along with steely, refreshing acidity." - The Wine Advocate

About Yalumba:

Yalumba is Australia's oldest family-owned winery, founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith. From modest beginnings, the Yalumba Wine Company has grown to become one of Australia's most successful wineries, owned by 5th generation Robert Hill-Smith. Yalumba regularly receives accolades for its outstanding wines, and for its leadership in viticultural innovation and sustainable farming. Yalumba was the first winery in the world to be recognized with the Climate Award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (2007), earned the International Green Apple Gold Award from House of Commons (U.K. 2011), and was the first winery outside the United States to win the BRIT International Award of Excellence in Sustainable Winegrowing Competition (2013). The Yalumba portfolio commences with the fresh and flavorsome varietal wines of the Y Series, then moves up to the Samuel’s Garden line to capture the essence of the classic Rhone-influenced varietals of the Barossa and Eden Valleys, explores sub-regional complexity through innovative, modern wines in the Hand Pickedline, and culminates with the coveted, collectible Yalumba Rare and Fine wines including Signature and Octavius.
