Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A very deep red in colour.

Aroma

Vibrant aromas of dark cherries, aniseed and licorice, distinctive and seductive with exotic spices and espresso coffee.

Palate

The dark berry fruit palate is rich and powerful, yet gently evolving, with a classy restrained elegance, displaying silky raspberry, damson plum and sweet blackberry fruits. A wonderfully balanced wine with beautiful tannins.

Cellar

Will continue to improve in the cellar for 15 years.

Food Pairing

Double decant and enjoy alongside classic steak and kidney pie or lentil, sweet potato and chickpea stew.

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.
