Wine: Yalumba Y Series
Type: Pinot Grigio
Date: late 2010 sometime...
Reason for purchase: Part of the work wine club.
Review: While I reviewed the Y Series' sister wine, the Rose, earlier in 2010 I'm having a hard time recalling when I tasted the Pinot Grigio. The busy Christmas period was the likely culprit, and the empty bottle is proof and so I must review!
Another grape variety that is gaining traction in the Australian market is Pinot Grigio. A fruit white that is not too sweet and not too dry, it competes well with the influx of Sauvignon Blanc that has littered the shelves for so long. Slightly lighter and great for summer, it is the white wine that you should bring out at a barbecue or picnic.
Like the other Y Series wines, this is a typical table wine that is easy to drink but not anything special. The slight tartness that is there is indication that the winemaking was done for quantity not quality, and for that reason (and the fact I can't remember the wine that well) it gets a solid 7.
