It’s 7.00am. The first rocket focuses their attention. A second signals the bulls are on their way.

The sea is now moving. Slow at first but running, turning, now faster as the sound of hooves descend. It’s a blur until the third rocket sounds.

The enceirro is over.

Relief and celebration.

Expert Reviews

The bulls run in Pamplona – a long way from Sardinia, home of vermentino. This grape variety is well suited to our warm growing conditions. The fruit for the 2011 vintage came from Langhorne Creek, the Adelaide Hills and the Barossa Valley. It’s a modest 12 per cent alcohol with juicy lemon pith and pink grapefruit flavours and a soft creamy texture – a result of the wild yeast ferment and extended post-ferment, yeast-lees contact. Serve with sardines à la plancha. Peter Bourne - Best buy wines Gourmet Traveller Wine (Dec 2012/Jan 2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

The fruit for the Running with Bulls Vermentino 2011 is sourced from Langhorne Creek, the Adelaide Hills and the Barossa Valley. Sourcing grapes from three of South Australia’s premium winegrowing areas allows us to achieve a broad spectrum of flavours.


A pale green straw.


The Running with Bulls Vermentino shows fresh aromas of Nashi pears and dried herbs, with grapefruit zest and just a hint of seaspray.


The wine has a fleshy yet savoury palate with flavours of white peach and grapefruit pith acidity supported by a very textural finish.

Red 5 Star Winery -James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Family-owned and run by Robert Hill Smith, Yalumba has long had a commitment to quality and has shown great vision in its selection of vineyard sites, new varieties and brands. It has always been a serious player at the top end of full-bodied (and full-blooded) Australian reds, and was the pioneer in the use of screwcaps. While its estate vineyards are largely planted to mainstream varieties, it has taken marketing ownership of viognier. However, these days its own brands revolve around the Y Series and a number of stand-alone brands across the length and breadth of SA. Yalumba has been very successful in building its export base. Exports to all major markets.
