Food Matching

Food Matching

This is one of the most versatile wines around. It can be dressed up or down; drunk on its own, at dinner party or barbecue; and can go Asian, fusion or European in flavour profile. In their book The Simple Art of Marrying Food and Wine, Malcolm Gluck and Mark Hix suggest pairing it with Bouillabaisse, but if you are not feeling that ambitious you can try it with your favourite Chinese or Indian takeaway. Its crisp acidity makes it a good match for fatty foods such as pork belly or spicy sausages, and it is be a good match for most fish and shellfish too.

Wine tasting notes

Pale straw with green hues. The aromatics show paw paw and mango with blossom notes and sweet spice. The wine has a savoury edge with flinty notes from the wild ferment. The palate is fine and creamy with a touch of nuttiness, evolving with zingy citrus notes, fresh mango and cream. A refreshing, lip smacking acidity gives this wine lovely length and the finish is savoury and textural.

Winery Information

Yalumba

Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family owned winery founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, a British immigrant (he was a Master Brewer in England) and it is still owned by the Hill-Smith family today with their high reputation as an independent producer. Yalumba is an Aboriginal word for “all the land around”. The winery is situated in South Australia’s Barossa Valley, in a small town called Angaston - an hour north-east of Adelaide. The winery even has its own cooperage – the only one in Oz.. read more

Vinification Notes

The Y Series Chardonnay grapes were picked across the flavour spectrum, from lively citrus flavours such as lemons and limes to peach and tropical fruits. We picked in this way to ensure that when blended, the wine was balanced with flavour and natural acidity. Pressed straight to fermentation, the juice was managed using a “hands off” approach. Wild yeasts initiated and completed fermentation and once finished the wine was left on lees to build complexity
