Shiraz Adelaide Riverland Murray South Australia
From vineyards certified by the Soil Association UK and NASAA Australia. As part of Yalumba's ongoing commitment to environmental management, the award winning team craft a solid Shiraz wine from fruit grown to family owned sites which have been organically managed for years, the Barich site at Loxton, Palena at Barmera and Carypidis property on Adelaide Plains. Meticulous hand detailed work is required on all vineyards to achieve the quality of fruit that's essential for this style of wine.
Yalumba have pioneered almost every development in new world viticulture for over a century. Made to a holistic philosophy, fermented through the action of wild, indigenous yeasts and subject to minimal intervention, an organically grown and crafted wine is ironically an embrace of old fashioned methods. Vigilance and attention in the vineyard translates into a finished wine of excellent flavour profile and solid tannin structure. Exacting standards of viticulture are employed to ensure that grapes are in perfect condition when picked and arrive at the winery in the cleanest, healthiest state. Patience and a regimen of pure organic viticulture is followed by an unhurried approach throughout the vinification process.
Crimson red with purple hues. Aromas of plum, cherries and mulberry, violets and dried herb. Flavours of plum, allspice and blueberries are supported by hints of milk chocolate oak. A fruit driven, medium bodied wine with fine, soft tannins and a bright, juicy, persistent finish.
