Product Description

A pale green straw in colour, the Yalumba Y Series Vermentino 2011 has prominent aromas of jasmine and white nectarine, complemented by lashes of cumquat and sandalwood. The palate is fleshy and almost salty with grapefruit acidity and a textured finish, making this a very refreshing wine. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

The Yalumba Y Series of quality wines salutes our proud history of viticulture and winemaking in South Australia. Significantly, the individual icons on each label reflect the labours, inventive thinking and aspirations of all at Yalumba. This Vermentino depicts the Ligurian bee, both of which are perfectly suited to the South Australian environment. Tireless creatures that have been exalted for the quality of their honey, bees ‘dance’ to communicate with the hive, a ritual replicated by our team at Yalumba.
WINEMAKING / VITICULTURE
The Yalumba Y Series Vermentino 2011 was sourced from Bob and Faye Reichstein’s and Mark Trenwith’s vineyards in the Riverland township of Renmark. Planted on alluvial grey clay soils, the vines were meticulously cared for by the vineyard owners to make sure the crop and canopy balance were just right – ensuring the grapes could be picked with intense flavours.
WINEMAKER COMMENTS
The grapes were picked in the cool of the night to maximise freshness. They were crushed, de-stemmed and then gently pressed to extract pristine juice. The juice was settled then fermented cold to retain fruit flavours and fresh aromas. Two months of post ferment lees mixing has added to the texture and richness to the palate.
VINTAGE INFORMATION
Wonderful August and September rainfall across South Australia set the vines for a great season. Temperatures through spring were mild with no real heat spikes, leading to a good set with harmonious crop levels. The mild weather also encouraged balanced and healthy canopies. A mild summer and early autumn allowed for an extended ripening period resulting in great flavours at lower sugar levels. Consequently picking took place approximately six weeks later than in 2010.
