Winery Tasting Notes

Deep magenta in colour with a crimson hue. Aromas of dark cherries and Satsuma plums with a lovely balance of savoury and dried Mediterranean herbs, evocative of warm seaside escapes. The distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon tannins, guide across the palate of this bold and friendly Cabernet Sauvignon, showing why it is one of the world’s best known and enjoyed varieties. A lovely match for this wine is traditional homemade lasagne or sautéed Portobello mushrooms with rosemary and garlic.

With good winter soil moisture, the vines grew happily through a warm spring and into the summer months. These conditions led to an even bunch set and healthy vine canopy. Through summer and into autumn, the Cabernet Sauvignon vines held their fruit in great condition. The grapes were fermented in static and rotary fermenters, with warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation, along with 3 – 5 days post ferment maceration. This process helps to extract soft, fleshy tannins and build the wines structure and drinkability.

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.
