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.

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

95/100 Huon Hooke

"Deep red colour with a good purple tint and a mellow bouquet of earthy, nutty, faintly spicy Barossa character rather than varietal. It's full-bodied and very savoury, with abundant drying, earthy tannins and a rich, lingering finish and aftertaste. An interesting style, down-playing primary fruit and emphasising savouriness and tannin, but not oaky as they used to be. The tannins are mouthcoating and supple, ripe and classy. Good concentration and a very long carry. An impressive and delicious wine. (52% cabernet, 42% shiraz; about 20% new oak. Signatory is viticulturist Darrell Kruger) 22 MAY 2019." Drink 2019 - 2035

96/100 Halliday's Australian Wine Companion, Campbell Mattinson

"A seamless affair. Tobacco, blackcurrant, plum and malty oak sing in beautiful harmony, firm tannin singing from the same integrated songbook. Mint and dried herb notes make qualified contributions too. It doesn't have a lot of spunk, but it puts not a foot wrong." Drink by 2036
