Yalumba Y Series Merlot

Yalumba Y Series Merlot

Yalumba Y Series Merlot is part of The Yalumba Y Series of quality wines salutes our proud history of viticulture and winemaking in South Australia.

Yalumba believe that one good wine leads to another. The Y Series was created with that belief in mind. The Y Series represents a collection of iconic classics and exciting new varietals. Each authentically crafted with fruit from South Australia’s most celebrated wine regions.

Significantly, the individual icons on each label reflect the labours, inventive thinking and aspirations of all at Yalumba.
The Merlot depicts a winery dog. It could be a Flash, a Nugget or an Archie type dog. With its wet nose, soft fur and dazzling, clear eyes, the dog is a reminder of loyal and long term relationships, a hallmark of the Yalumba culture.

The summer months were warm with some rain events; these rains helped give the vines a great start and allowed them to access sub-soil moisture into summer. The wines from which Yalumba Y Series Merlot fruit is sourced were strong and healthy, producing grapes with focused flavour and excellent quality and structure. The grapes were fermented in static and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation and also three to five days post ferment maceration has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build wine structure.

The wine is deep crimson.

Aroma: Cedar and blackcurrants greet the drinker; intense dark fruits with Indian style spices and cracked peppercorn.

Palate: The palate shows briar and red fruits such as cherry and plum upfront and leads into a soft and velvety middle palate. This merlot is truly varietal and generous.

Enjoy with: Vegetarian korma.

South Australia

South Australia is the largest wine producing state of Australia. It may be surprising to most that the Riverland region is the state’s largest grape producing area. The Barossa Valley is famed for its full-bodied, rich, ripe and generous reds. The Coonawarra is internationally renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon (and prized ‘terra rossa’ soils). Padthaway, McLaren Vale, and the Clare Valley all make major contributions, and the importance of the Adelaide Hills is rapidly increasing.
