 The Yalumba story started with Samuel Smith venturing across the seas from England to a small town called Angaston in South Australia. He founded Yalumba in 1849, planting the first vine under moonlight with his son, Sidney. His bold, pioneering spirit has passed through the generations, influencing each of Yalumba’s proprietors throughout the years; Sidney Smith, Walter Smith, and Wyndham Hill-Smith, all the way through to our fifth generations proprietor today, Robert Hill-Smith. 
Robert led Yalumba into the modern era by cementing the estate’s reputation as an internationally-focused and innovative business within the Australian wine industry.  Robert’s family carries on the legacy set in place by Samuel Smith, continuing to experiment and showcase the best the Barossa has to offer.  Since 1992 Yalumba wines have been made by Louisa Rose and she has become one of the world’s most respected winemakers. Lou is passionate about creating great Australian wine. 

Tasting Notes

Method

A flagship Shiraz born of treasured, old vines dating back to 1854, these are some of the oldest Shiraz plantings in the world. Matured in Yalumba coopered oak octaves; the inspiration behind the name of this wine.   67% of this Shiraz is sourced from the Barossa Valley and 33% from Eden Valley; the average age of the vines is 80 years.  The Barossa Valley fruit provides richness, density and concentration, while the Eden Valley portion provides the exotic aromatics and seamless palate structure.  Matured for 23 months in 30% new French oak barriques and hogsheads, balance in 1 year and older American octaves, French barriques and hogsheads.
