Wines Brand
 

More than 165 years after Samuel Smith planted his small beloved “gardens”, Yalumba continues to craft wines which reflect the provenance of these pioneering vines. This collection of wines celebrates the direct lineage to some of Australia’s first vine plantings, some of which are now the oldest vines in the world. Samuel’s Garden collection demonstrates the diversity and quality of the Barossa, whilst celebrating the history of Australian wine and its connection to some of the oldest wine making countries in the world.

 Patchwork Shiraz 2012

Patchwork Shiraz 2012

With 160 years of Barossa heritage Yalumba continues to champion Australia's most
celebrated wine region and variety with its Patchwork Shiraz sourced from several high
quality yet vastly different Barossa vineyards.

The opportunity to craft a single wine of individuality and personality from a ‘patchwork quilt’ of soils, aspects, microclimates and cultures is simply too good to refuse. Through rigorous site selection, our winemakers unearth power, elegance, spice and structure – all the elements required to produce outstanding Barossa Shiraz.

 Roussanne 2013

Roussanne 2013

Since starting work with Viognier in the 1980's the Yalumba winemaking team have been keen to work with other perfumed and exotic varieties originating from the Northern Rhône. Our first attempt to produce Roussanne was in the 1980's, however, the imported vine material was found to contain a virus and had to be destroyed. It was not until the late 2000's that we had vines ready to go into the ground.

 The Guardian Shiraz Viognier 2010

The Guardian Shiraz Viognier 2010

Rich, generous shiraz from Eden Valley is co-fermented with viognier producing a deliciously spicy, silky and savoury red wine. The co-fermentation of viognier, a white grape, and shiraz, a black grape, adds an extra dimension to this iconic Australian red.

 The Strapper 2012

The Strapper 2012

The three varieties are picked separately for this wine and fermented in small batches - some in oak vats and some in stainless steel. The subsequent wines are aged in a mixture of large oak vats, small oak vats, puncheons and smaller oak barrels, to allow the wines to develop without the influence of a lot of oak flavour, but to increase in textures and complexity. Parcels of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro are chosen from Barossa vineyards that show vibrancy and depth of fruit.

 Viognier 2013

Viognier 2013

The Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier is rich and opulent with intense varietal flavour - classic apricot and white peach flavours combined with citrus freshness and a hint of spice. Partial barrel fermentation in French oak has contributed the complexity essential in creating a truly intriguing wine.
