Overview

Yalumba has been making premium red wine under the Galway name since the 1940s. The release of Yalumba Galway Vintage Traditional Shiraz 2011 marks 69 years of Galway. Galway was named in honour of L.T. Col. Sir Henry L. Galway, K.C.M.G., D.S.O, who was governor of South Australia from 1914 - 1920. He was a keen wine man with a good palate and a regular visitor to Yalumba in Angaston. The success of the early Galway reds became the base on which all Yalumba reds were developed. Today, Galway is still made to a traditional style with rich colour, distinctive spicy fruit and perfectly integrated oak. It is an elegant, full bodied wine with 5 - 7 years cellaring potential.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Expert Reviews

"Here’s the perfect way to convert any pinot drinker to shiraz. The cool 2011 vintage has blessed young Galway with a little more perfumed violet lift, a little fresher red berry fruit and a touch more pepper spice, making for an alluring, fruit-driven style with soft, supple tannins."90 points - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly, 20 April 2012

The Yalumba Galway Vintage Barossa Shiraz 2011 is the latest in a label which has been a cornerstone of Yalumba reds for 70 years. It is an old style, dry red with robust flavours and grippy tannins, perfect with lamb shanks or a juicy steak."

Ross Noble, The Courier, 17 October 2012

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.
