Wine Background

The Yalumba Y Series of quality wines salutes our proud history of viticulture and winemaking in South Australia. Significantly, the individual icons on each label reflect the labours, inventive thinking and aspirations of all at Yalumba. 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.

Winemaking Note

Fruit for the Y Series Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the quality South Australian Cabernet vineyard regions of Wrattonbully and Langhorne Creek. The grapes were fermented in static potter and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation, and also three to five days post ferment maceration, has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build wine structure.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

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.
