Yellowglen Yellow NV

Yellow is the number one selling wine in Australia.  You see the advertising signs at bus stops, on buses and in magazines so there is no shortage of marketing saturation.  The big question is ‘does it stack up’ and ‘with value like the Jacobs Creek does this compete on a quality to price ratio’?

There is a rather flat nose that has bubbles cascading out of the glass.  On the palate you get a little lemon and apples that turns sweet from the mid palate.  I was about to say that the flavour is of strawberry but I think it is just residual sweetness kicking in.  Apart from the initial burst of flavour everything seems a little dilute and short to take it up the quality tree.  That said this costs $6.50 and at 11 percent alcohol it works out to be 1 dollar per standard drink. At the price it works ok but there are some better value wines out there.
