Yalumba Organic Chardonnay 2015 shows the grape in its pure and natural state: apple, citrus and peach flavours with a wild-child herbal, nutty note from the native yeast, spontaneous fermentation. Organically winemaking and organic farming does make a difference.
The Hill-Smith family who founded Yalumba in 1849 are Australian wine aristocracy. The family is intimately involved in all parts of the business, and are especially committed to organics. This is chardonnay in its pure and natural state, focused citrus, apple and peach flavours with a wild-child herbal, nutty note from the native yeast, spontaneous fermentation. For this wine, both the farming and the winemaking practices are both certified, a testament to Yalumba’s commitment to good-for-the-planet-and-body, low-intervention approach. It’s a wine you feel good about buying and drinking. Pair with spicy noodles, steamed shellfish, or just dive into a chilled glass.
