Winemaker's Notes

Light straw with green hues the 2008 Yalumba Y Series Unwooded Chardonnay has fresh aromas of pineapple, quince and paw paw with floral spices. A rich, yet mineral palate complemented by fresh tropical fruit that finishes with fresh grapefruit acidity.

Serve with lemon chicken or sweet and sour pork.

Our 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 flavours. For 2008 we have 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 and blending to build some richness of flavor.

If you have not , pick up a couple of bottles of Yalumba or Kim Crawford un-oaked and serve them to your Savignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio drinkers. They will love them.

very nice chardonnay, especially for people who are tired of the overly ripe, overly oak version. Bright tropical fruit flavors and aromas with excellent acidity. Very good white table wine.
