Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz
Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston, Barossa Valley, 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". Five generations and 160 years later Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, and since 1989 the company has been run by Robert and Sam Hill Smith. Yalumba owns over 1000 acres of vineyards, as well as buying in grapes from selected growers, some of whom have been working with Yalumba over 4 generations. The winery is modern and hi-tech and is one of the very few wine companies in the world to have its own cooperage!
What The Critics Say
96/100 Huon Hooke
"Deep, rich red colour with lots of purple, the bouquet blackberry and violets, smoky char and very shirazzy, with traces of herbs and mint. The palate is concentrated and dense, with lots of grip. Chocolate - and even some rum-and-raisin chocolate - on the palate. A very deep, powerful, long-term wine. Most impressive. 10 OCT 2017." Drink 2017 - 2038
94/100 Toni Patterson
"A deeply concentrated wine, surprisingly quiet but at the same time bold. The cabernet component asserts itself throughout the wine. Dark berries with crushed herb accents. Prominent tannin. The label pays tribute to Yalumba’s ‘Director of Wine’ Andrew Murphy. 10 OCT 2017." Drink 2018 - 2033
93/100 Halliday's Australian Wine Companion, James Halliday
"The alcohol may be modest, but that's where this line of enquiry ends. It's powerful, it wears a Driza-Bone and RM Williams boots, and isn't prepared to debate this characterisation at all. We could go down to the pub and, suitably fortified, settle things out the back." Drink by 2033
