Wine tasting notes

A moreish Barossa Shiraz that is approachable, full-bodied and fleshy. Deep and brooding with aromas of dark fruits, red spices, anise and ripe cherries, the palate flows with even texture towards a soft finish.

Winery Information

Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family owned winery founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, a British immigrant (he was a Master Brewer in England) and it is still owned by the Hill-Smith family today with their high reputation as an independent producer. Yalumba is an Aboriginal word for “all the land around”. The winery is situated in South Australia’s Barossa Valley, in a small town called Angaston - an hour north-east of Adelaide. The winery even has its own cooperage – the only one in Oz.. read more

Decanter Bronze - Shows opulence and ripeness, with violets, ripe blackberries, figs and fruitcake before a slate minerality on the finish.

Vinification Notes

The wild yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate fermentation and then cultured winery yeasts were added to complete the process. Different fermentation options allowed us to optimise each individual batch and promote excellent colour, rishness and texture. Matured for 10 months in 15% new French, Hungarian and American hogsheads, barriques & octaves, and the balance in old octaves, hogsheads and barriques. The result is a wine with excellent depth of colour and a rich generosity.
