As I considered it the best wine available in Australia for less than $15, I have to include it here. Yalumba is now performing stunningly in all segments of the market, from cask wines to it super-premium, single-vineyard Barossa shiraz. If you are looking for consistently good budget-priced wines, Yalumba is a safe bet. The Galway Vintage was supervised by Andrew La Nauze through a tricky, drought-affected growing season that resulted in low yields and, no doubt, contributed to the wine's concentration. The 2007 Galway Vintage shows attractive spicy aromatics, rich, ripe, blackberry-pastille, mulberry and dark plum flavours, velvety texture and a fresh, clean finish that lingers."
