Expert Reviews

The three Yalumba shiraz featured in Quaff are all mightily impressive for the third year in succession. This has been Bloody Good for four years. There's an attractive lightness of touch, a brightness to this red: gentle floral perfumes, lively blackberry pastille, dark plum flavours that are rich and concentrated, fleshy texture, and a balanced, classy finish.BLOODY GOOD - Peter Forrestal, Quaff 2011 (September/2010)

There’s no mention of viognier on the label of this terrific-value shiraz – but it has all the characteristics of a shiraz-viognier blend. It’s soft and floral, perfumed and easy to quaff. It’s a very pretty wine at a very pretty price. It tastes/smells of violets and plums, cherries and boysenberry. It has a sappy, cedary quality that I can take or leave – but I have no hesitation in recommending this. Drink : 2011-2013.Rating 88 - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front (22/MAR/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A crimson purple in colour.

Aroma

This wine is bright and fresh with aromas of blueberries, violets and cherry ripe with hints of cinnamon.

Palate

Vibrant and medium bodied, The Y Series Shiraz displays fine white pepper tannins, and hints of cherry and rhubarb to finish.

Food Matching

Enjoy this wine with tacos, burritos and nachos - a Mexican fiesta!

Winemaking Note

The grapes were fermented in static potters and rotary fermenters. Both the warm temperatures at onset of fermentation and the three-to-five day post ferment maceration helped extract soft fleshy tannins, which builds wine structure.

Wine Background

This Shiraz depicts our coopers toiling in our cooperage crafting magnificent oak barrels, a proud Yalumba tradition in a wine world that has precious few of these truly gifted artisans. Another example of Yalumba ‘controlling the controllables’ in premium winemaking.

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.
