Tasting Notes

Colour: Medium ruby
Aroma: Impressively aromatic and perfumed showing cranberry, raspberry, spices and violets. Fresh red fruits and a mouth watering acidity showcase the brightness and coolness of Eden Valley.
Palate: The palate, medium in depth retains the texture and sweet fruits that come with co-fermenting with Viognier. This is not about brute force, this is modern, svelte and balanced albeit in a slightly edgy direction. Can be stored in cellar for the medium term, 7 to 10 years. Pair with twice cooked pork belly with red cabbage, endive and walnut or Sicilian penne with roast tomatoes & eggplant.
Grape Varieties: 95% Shiraz and 5% Viognier
Aging: Matured for 15 Months in 22% new French oak hogsheads and barriques, balance in one year and older French oak hogsheads and barriques
Awards: 90pts – Wine Spectator

History of Yalumba

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer. Samuel named his patch “Yalumba”- aboriginal for “all the land around”. Five generations and 160 years later Yalumba, Australia’s oldest family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over.
