Other text
Harvested early to mid season, Chardonnay in the Riverina and Riverland regions exhibits ripe rockmelon and peach characters, without being overly tropical in flavour. The fruit is crushed though widened rollers and then gently air bag pressed. Free run and pressings components are kept separate, using only the free run for Yellow Tail Chardonnay. The juice is then cold settled and lightly fined to remove harsh phenolics before being fermented by specially selected yeast strains. As soon as the fermentation is complete, the wine is cold stabilised and gently oaked for 6 months prior to bottling.

Food pairing
The sweet and savoury palate lends itself to both pasta or meat dishes, or you could "throw some shrimp on the barbie" perhaps.

Producer
”People can’t be bothered by all the hype and nonsense of wine. They just want to drink it.” ~John Casella. It all started in 1820, when the first Casellas planted some vines in the Italian countryside. Two things sprouted shortly thereafter: a cluster of grapes, and a family passion that would last 188 years and counting. Fast forward to 1957. Filippo and Maria Casella were keeping the business alive in Italy, when they decided to pack up and move to Australia. However far away, they couldn’t escape their wine roots. Filippo began selling grapes to local wineries. Then in 1969, he decided it was time for a new generation of Casellas to put their winemaking skills to use. Following the blueprint of other Australian winemakers, Casella sourced his fruit from other growing areas throughout South Eastern Australia, creating wines with incredible freshness and character year after year. Still, almost a third of the grapes used for [yellow tail] are grown right in the Casella family’s vineyards, nearly 540 acres in the Riverina region of Australia. In 1994, the Casellas built a new and improved winery, blending old world heritage with new world technology. From humble beginnings, this family has come a long way. Today the company is run by Filippo’s three sons—John, Joe and Marcello—while Filippo’s grandchildren have become the sixth generation to join the family business. In 2000, John Casella joined forces with another family-run company, W.J. Deutsch & Sons, to bring the goodness of [yellow tail] to the United States. Year after year, the Casella family continues to create quality wine that’s fun, flavorful, and bursting with a personality all of its own.
