Yalumba Christobel's Classic Dry White - "a lively tribute to a family matriarch"

 Join the Club

"Christobel Hill Smith was an enthusiastic contributor to the success of the family winery Yalumba for more than 60 years. The Christobel's Classic Dry White 2007 is a lively, bright wine that reflects the personality of one of the family's matriarchs. It's a blend of semillon - which the Barossa does so well - and sauvignon blanc, which the adjoining Adelaide Hills region is becoming renowned for. There are melony and fig flavours enhanced by zesty sherbert, while the finish is clean and crisp. Went well with a chicken on rye sandwhich."
