Expert Reviews

Light, bright red-purple; a 61/39% blend from the Barossa (which includes both Barossa Valley and Eden Valley) with vibrant redcurrant, cherry and plum fruit and a nice touch of oak. The moderate alcohol plays a major role in making this wine as fresh and drinkable as it is.

Rating: 94, Drink By: 2017 - James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion (05 Sep 2011)

Winery Tasting Notes


A deep crimson red.


The Scribbler 2009 shows excellent concentration and lift on the nose, with redcurrant fruits, spices and licorice complementing fresh floral aromatics of herbs and mints.


This is a densely weighted wine with blackcurrant fruit and dark berries. The Shiraz is again nicely layered within a tightly integrated and beautifully structured Cabernet Sauvignon palate.

Cellaring Potential

Perfect to drink now, but will certainly cellar well over the next five to 10 years.

Food Matching

Pair with beef wellington.

Winemaking Note

Select parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes were hand-picked and crushed to open top stainless steel fermenters. The balance of the vineyards were machine harvested and fermented in our larger static fermenters. The natural yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate the sugar fermentation before cultured winery yeasts were added. The result is a wine with excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

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.
