Yalumba Y Series Pinot Grigio 2012

The question I find myself asking of this range, is not why, but rather how Yalumba can turn out wines of this quality at the price often seen on the retailers shelves.

Winemaking inputs here are those often seen at wines twice the price.  Selective hand-picking, oxidative handling, wild yeast ferments etc.

Pear, poached pear, apple blossom, golden hints of flaxseed and florals.  The palate shows lovely crisp and crunchy pear, lemon accented.  An excellent to crisp acid, clean through the mid-section.

Finishes well with phenolic grip, generous length that belies the price.  90 - Good
Tasted on: 10th October, a Leaf Day
