Expert Reviews

95 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionMatured for 22 months in 100l micro barrels coopered at Yalumba. Has elegance and balance. Red and black fruits, superfine tannins and - of course - integrated oak. Some wine staining on the sides of the cork.
93 Points - Jeremy OliverSumptuous dark plums, blueberries and blackberries soak up cedary oak and extend down a drying, gravelly spine towards a finish of brightness, freshness and elegance. Musky, spicy and meaty.
93 Points - Decanter World Wine Awards 2019 - SilverFresh purple damsons and plums, with some cherry notes and a hint of savoury. Shows layers of spicy complexity.
93 Points - James SucklingA very composed Octavius with rich blackberries and dark plums, framed in tarry, earthy and gently spicy complexity. The palate delivers a very fluid and long impression with a wealth of ripe, smooth tannin that holds the long finish. Drink or hold.

Who made it?

Chief winemaker Louisa Rose directs the winery in a style of their own. It incorporates unique elements such as a grape vine nursery and on site cooperage. Yalumba is at the forefront of introducing new varieties and styles to the Australian palate. They include perfumed Viognier, fresh Vermentino and supple Tempranillo, with Fiano and Verdejo soon to come. Yalumba adopts a holistic approach to environmental practices, focusing on sustainability and natural resource management. They take a leading role in the industry by reducing carbon emissions, increasing biodiversity and exploring organic viticulture. Yalumba has been recognised on the international stage with numerous awards for sustainable environmental management practices. They celebrated 160 years of Barossa heritage with the development of the Barossa Old Vine charter and the release of red wines from ancient Shiraz and Grenache vines. Yalumba was founded in the Barossa Valley in 1849 by British migrant and English brewer, Samuel Smith. Smith and son planted the estate’s first vines by moonlight after purchasing a 30 acre parcel of land just beyond the south eastern boundary of Angaston. Samuel named the patch Yalumba, an aboriginal word meaning all the land around. Five generations and 160 years later, Yalumba has grown in size and stature to become Australia's oldest family owned winery. Yalumba is now run by fifth generation descendant, Robert Hill-Smith and family. Robert was appointed Managing Director of Yalumba in 1985. The Hill-Smith family is committed to an energetic and innovative company that is quality focused and young at heart.
