Overview

Vintage Conditions

A typical cold Barossa winter flowed into a wet spring and cool growing season. In response, the harvest of Shiraz grapes across our Barossa vineyards was about two to four weeks later than we had experienced over the last decade or so. Fine and clear weather during the harvest period and a certain degree of patience made for excellent flavour and tannin accumulation in our Shiraz grapes, as seen in this outstanding wine.

Winemaking

The vineyards for the Galway Vintage Shiraz are sourced from our loyal family grower base in the Barossa. The grapes were fermented in static potter and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation and also 3 to 5 days post fermentation has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build wine structure.

Winery Tasting Notes

In the glass the wine has bright ruby and crimson hues. This follows through to a generous nose of pepper, blackberry, choc-mocha and vanilla tones. Complexity opens further with hints of liquorice and violets. The savoury palate shows blood plums and sweet spice leading onto soft chewy tannins.

Enjoy with a homemade burger, caramelised onion and beetroot relish or a mushroom & thyme risotto.

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.
