Top Yarra white

Yarra Yering Dry White Wine No. 1 2019, Yarra Valley, AUD $55

Light but intense lemon-yellow hue. Vibrant nose of crushed-shells and lemongrass. The palate intensity is immediately noted, volume across the full spectrum is turned right up. Intense lemongrass, yellow flowers and sea minerals meld together whilst firm but poised acids drive everything long into the finish. A finishing fuzz of phenolics adds an extra dimension to the endless length. (Screwcap)
