Yalumba Y Series Sauvignon Blanc 2012

The majority of the fruit for this Savvy comes from the Barossa (84%).

For me, there were a number of similarities to a Riesling and Semillon, more so than that of a Sauvignon Blanc.

Lemons and some pineapple aromas roll into the palate that has good weight and is well coated. I wouldn't suggest the flavours fall in the category of fresh, as there was a little texture for interest.

Getting away from analytics, this is a very easy drinking wine. Forget varietal traits of what you'd usually expect from a Sauvignon Blanc.
I had this with some barbecued chicken and it went down nicely.
