More information on wine critics and ratings

Aroma: Apple blossom, musk, orange sherbet and fresh cut pear.

Palate: Great fruit weight and creaminess with overriding flavours of Meyer lemons and a moreish finish.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 89 Points (2017)
Lip-smacking green apple, lime and grapefruit zest notes are bright and precise, set on a sleek and juicy frame. Drink now.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 89 Points (2017)
A bright, attractive dry Riesling at an affordable price, this wine is a delicate composite of fresh peach, lime and floral notes. It's zingy and limey on the palate with a soft chalky texture. There's an easygoing nature about this summery sipper.

James Halliday (JH) : 89 Points (2015)
As you would expect, very well made, its flavour and mouthfeel suggesting an Eden Valley/Barossa Valley blend; the ripe citrus flavours show modest alcohol can do the job with one arm strapped behind the winemaker's back.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 87 Points (2012)
Jul 2013 - Light yellow. Ripe pear and honeydew on the fragrant nose. Fleshy and open-knit, with good heft to its orchard fruit and tangerine flavors. Closes on a slightly bitter note, with modest persistence, good focus and grip. -- Josh Raynolds

Often described as one of Australia’s unsung heroes, Grenache is naturally lighter in colour than Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon but continually provides us with wonderful big fruit flavours. Yalumba is extremely fortunate to have access to some of the oldest Grenache vineyards in the Barossa –with fruit for this wine sourced from vines planted between 1898 and 1973.
