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.

"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."

Winery Tasting Notes
This Shiraz shows all the hallmarks of a traditional Barossa Red.
It has a bright colour with crimson hues.
There are aromas of mulberries, ground spice and liquorice allsorts that speak of its varietal and regional origins.
The palate is ripe and generous with flavours of mulberries, dark chocolate and hints of beetroot. It finishes with cocoa
powder like tannins that give evenness and generosity to the wine.
Enjoy with Guinness and oyster pie.
