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
