Yalumba has been named one of Wine and Spirits International Wineries of the year in 2003 and again in 2004.
Some comments from the international publication:
"...mature plantings go into The Virgilius, while some is fermented together with shiraz to massive effect"
"The cooperage provides the small, 90-liter octaves for aging The Octavius, Yalumba’s top selection of old vine shiraz ... a Barossan beauty, a potent reservoir..."
"Best Value and Exceptional Value for Yalumba Oxford Landing Sauvignon Blanc"
"...the only winery in the Southern Hemisphere to cooper all it’s barrels, their
cooperage was established 80 years ago"
