Yalumba Y Series Vermentino 2011

A variety you're going to increasingly see a lot of - and that's not a bad thing if the examples I have seen are anything to go by.  

Fresh, lemony aromatic profile with an extra dimension redolent of fresh white bread.  In the mouth there's zing and zest, some elements from the tropical fruit spectrum weave their way way around along with a textural edge, washed pebble.

Not a great deal length to the wine, the texture compensating with sufficient interest, where it does excel is in offering fantastic refreshment at an excellent price point - would work perfectly with a large plate of Whitebait.  89 - Good.
