A great discount on this serious red from quality giants of Aussie wine, Yalumba. From a very good vintage with low crops and small berries, this wine is packed with extra finesse and power framed in a gripping, tactile structure. Delicious and impressive now, it has the bones to improve for a long time. For well under $50 this is a deal.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz

Its Origins

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 Halliday's Australian Wine Companion, James Halliday

"Matured for 20 months in French, Hungarian and American oak. This ticks all the boxes, a rock of ages in the storm of Yalumba reds coming onto the market, led by The Cayley, but numerous others seeking your company. The blackcurrant and blackberry fruit are in total harmony, and the overall texture is of a high order thanks to the oak management, as well as that of the tannins. A standout from a vintage that had its challenges." Drink by 2040

96/100 Bob Campbell MW (2013 vintage)

"From a drought year that produced small bunches of dry grapes and wines with plenty of tannin. This is a big, structured and moderately closed wine with an heroic structure and very ripe fruit flavours. A little hard to read right now, but the wine deserves to be cellared for a few years before opening."

96/100 Huon Hooke (2013 vintage)

"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
