One of “five certified organic wines, sustainably made at the Yalumba winery” which “embodies the brand’s sustainable journey and commitment to the next generation, with a fierce determination for the future.” Yalumba know how this works and are openly acknowledging their future. No oak for this mod fresh drinker.
Yalumba, GEN, Organic, Chardonnay, South Australia, 2022
Pale lemon with an almost green highlight. Plenty of flinty and reductive notes with a little nougat, breadcrust, white and yellow stone fruit and grapefruit citrus. Rich and forward with juicy, fleshy stone fruit, butterscotch and a malty, mealy grounding. Finishes refreshingly tight and bracing. One for the lovers of a bigger style of Chardonnay.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
