Yalumba is one of the Barossa’s oldest winemaking families. If you’ve ever had the privilege of going to the stately winery in Angaston, it is impossible not to feel the history of the place – it’s palpable. Every level of the company is run with an air of fanaticism and loyalty that is an absolute marvel to witness, and Samuel Smith & Sons the parent company, remains to this day a wholly family owned company.
This wine shows all the hallmarks of Barossa Shiraz in a balanced and restrained package. The fruit aromatics are all about red plum, cherries and savory herbs. This is a medium to full depth wine with balanced fruit concentration. The palate is full of savoriness, texture, black olives and has an evenness flowing from start to finish. This is about being soft and supple yet also rich and textural; an even line of tannins completes the wine.
