Tasting Notes

Colour: Deep ruby
Aroma: Exhibits savoury notes of red currants followed by dried herb aromatics, leading into almost sweet and sour plums.
Palate: A medium to full bodied brooding wine, that truly reflects the intriguing 2014 vintage. The palate depth is all Barossa Valley, with a dark bitter chocolate roundness and medium to full depth of ironstone tannins through to the finish. Will continue to improve in the cellar for 15 years. Double decant and enjoy alongside a beef or mushroom wellington with roasted root vegetables.
Grape Varieties: 100% Shiraz
Aging: Matured for 20 months in 38% new French and American oak octaves, 19% in 1 year old French barriques and hogsheads, balance in older French barriques, hogsheads and octaves.
Awards: 92pts – Wine Spectator; 93pts – Wine Advocate-Parker

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.
