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)

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.
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.
