Yellowglen has selected the finest harvests of Sauvignon Blanc, to fashion a wine that shows lifted herbaceous and lemongrass characters over a length of ripe tropicality. It's revitalizing and full of zest, Yellowglen delivers a freshness and charm which makes the perfect aperitif wine, it's also a match to modern, cosmopolitan faire.
Yellowglen produce Australia's most elegant and innovative sparkling wines, an effervescent style of Sauvignon Blanc keeps Yellowglen right at the cutting edge. The grapes at vintage time, must be harvested at just the right moment, when sugar levels, refreshing acidity and the desired level of ripeness are achieved. Essential to the vinification process, is that grapes showing excellent varietal definition and a balance of natural fruit sugar to bracing acidity, are delivered to the Yellowglen wineworks in the most pristine condition. Crafted to the distinctively fresh, fruit driven style for which Yellowglen are famous, inoculated to aromatic yeasts and vinified in clean fermenters, to retain the focus on freshness and vitality.
Delicate yellow/ green hue, a persistent bead. Lifted herbaceous and spicy Sauvignon Blanc characters are well matched to tropical fruits, passion and kiwifruit. The palate is full flavoured and bursting with ripe flavours, gooseberries and citrus tang, supported by juicy acids and herbaceousness. A clean and fresh style that mates well to grilled seafood or spicy Thai.

More About Yellowglen Winery
Australia’s most successful and prestigious sparkling wine venture was established in 1971 as a hobby by Ballarat businessman Ian Home
The Yellowglen vineyard at Smythesdale, 18km south west of Ballarat was originally planted to red grape varieties destined for table wine. The name Yellowglen was given to the winery after a gold mine was discovered in the middle of what are now pinot noir sites. It soon became clear however that this cool climate area would be far better suited to the production of world-class sparkling wine. Ian himself recognised that a gap had developed in the market for sparkling wine in Australia. French champagne was priced at $12.99 and Australian sparkling wine at $3.99 Yellowglen»
