Tasting Notes

A medium-deep red with purple hues, this is an expressive wine. The scent is invigorating in its vibrancy - earthy and herbal with bright sunny cherries. On the palate, the wine is restrained in its focus with complex spice notes, wild cherries and pure red fruits. The tannins are fine with a cool granite characteristic hovering just under the surface. 

Only an hour drive north from Adelaide, the Barossa wine region is made up of two valleys—the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley.  While the Barossa Valley received substantially less rainfall than the Eden Valley, their soils are more fertile.  The Barossa is unique in that it has never suffered from the scourge of phylloxera.  Consequently, the vines thrive on their own root stocks.

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch "Yalumba" – aboriginal for "all the land around".

 
Yalumba also leads the industry in environmental performance; reducing carbon emissions, increasing biodiversity and exploring organic viticulture. As well as looking to the future, it has been celebrating its 160-year-old Barossa heritage by developing an Old Vine charter, and releasing reds from ancient Shiraz and Grenache plants. The fruit for this Grenache comes from vines 35-80 years old.
