Winemaker's Notes:

Yellow Tail Sauvignon Blanc is pale straw in color with vibrant citrus, passion fruit and fresh grassy scents on the nose and a tantalizing palate of limes, tropical fruit and green apples. The lengthy finish shows good depth of flavor with crisp, refreshing acidity.

Yellow Tail Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect partner with good friends and your favorite seafood dish.

About Yellow Tail:

It all began way back in 1820s when the first Casellas began crafting wine in Italy. Over a century later, in 1951, Filippo Casella and his wife Maria decided to leave their homeland to pursue their hopes and dreams of a better life in Australia. Recognizing the potential of his new surroundings, Filippo purchased a farm in the small town of Yenda, New South Wales, and did what came naturally. He began selling grapes to local wineries, and by 1969 decided it was time to put his own winemaking skills to use and the Casella winery was born.

Filippo's son, John, entered the family business in 1994 and embarked on an ambitious expansion to build a new winery with a vision of blending old world heritage with new world technology. Today, Casella Wines, including Yellow Tail, is run by Filippo's three sons - John, Managing Director and Winemaker; Joe, Australian Sales Director; and Marcello, Director and Vineyard Manager. Filippo's grandchildren - Phillip and Rachelle - are the sixth generation to join the business.
