This wine is a blend of fruit from the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Together,
these two adjacent regions make up the Barossa. The warmer Barossa Valley
produces wines that have richness of flavor, while the cooler Eden Valley
provides elegant and lifted aromatics. The Barossa region is renowned for its
quality Riesling wines.
Yalumba Y Series Riesling 2006 is pale straw in color with green hues. The
wine shows classic varietal character with aromas of lime juice and lemon peel,
with delicate orange blossom overtones. The palate is lively and refreshing
with generous lemon and grapefruit flavors, and a hint of fleshy ripe tropical
fruits on the finish.
This wine is great for current drinking, and for those who enjoy the subtle toast and honey flavors of aged Riesling wines, this wine will cellar well for 5-8
