Expert Reviews

Yalumba’s much-loved Y range offers some of the best value drinking in the country. This gorgeous drop comes layered with sweet dark fruit, firm Cabernet tannins and a lovely dry finish. Pair it with all the deliciously charred goodies your barbeque can churn out. Matt Skinner, Home Beautiful (MAY/2011)

One of the stars of Y Series this year - Cabernet that ticks boxes rarely seen at this price. Impressive varietal definition of blackcurrant and redcurrant, a perfumed bouquet of violets, capsicum and tomatoes and finally structured tannins for short term cellaring potention.Rating 91 - Tyson Stelzer, Wine 100 (MAR-APR/ 2011)

It's sourced from a number of South Australian regions and as is so often the case at the affordable end of the market - it's cabernet to the rescue. This is the best of the Yalumba Y Series red releases this year. It's clearly varietal and chockers with well-weighted, dark fruit flavour. Blackcurrant, dust, tobacco and eucalypt. Grippy tannin gives the wine form and bite. This is a good-un, for definite. Drink: 2011 - 2014."Rating 90 - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front (23/MAR/2011)

You can't buy a decent red for ten bucks. Oh yeah? This feisty little cabernet ticks all the boxes of perfume, definition, persistance and even - wait for it - a chance to improve for a few years in the cellar. Drink 2011-2014." Rating 91 - Tyson Stelzer, tysonstelzer.com, (11/MAR/ 2011)

It had been a while since I took a close look at the value-for-money Y Series range from Australia’s oldest family-owned winery – and what a revelation they were. There wasn’t a dud among them with the pinot grigio, riesling, unwooded chardonnay and viognier all standouts. This is a much better wine than you’d expect from an everyday drinking red with evocative varietal aromas, classic cassis and mint notes and fine tannins with a persistent finish. You’ll struggle to do better for the price.Winsor Dobbin, The Sunday Examiner Magazine (20/FEB/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark scarlet in colour with a purple hue.

Aroma

The wine shows aromas of crushed blackcurrants, violets and mint leaf are enhanced by hints of dusty French oak, Sichuan pepper and white truffles.

Palate

Winemaking Note

The grapes were fermented in static potter and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation and also 3-5 days post ferment maceration has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build wine structure.Suitable for vegetarians.

Wine Background

This Cabernet Sauvignon depicts the scarecrow, our ‘guardians of abundance’, who keep a watchful eye over our ripening grapes and our community during the Barossa Vintage festival.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

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.
