Wines Brand
 

The Yalumba Single Site release marks a milestone in the Hill-Smith family's enduring commitment to exploring, unearthing and celebrating the complex terroir of the Barossa, a commitment that spans more than 150 years.

"A wine's price doesn't tell you how expensive it is. It depends on the quality, prestige, rarity and all manner of factors. Yalumba - a leader at everything from cask to exclusive wine - has just released a new range of single-site reds ... they're all stunning statements of their region, variety and site, and exactly the kind of wine that Australia needs to think about, produce and promote. I have no hesitation in recommending them all, in particular the shiraz wines. (They’re) quite spectacular - and will be even better when it's mature, from about six years time onwards. A wine of this calibre never comes cheap, because such wines are rare.”

- Campbell Mattinson, Gourmet Traveller WINE, June / July 2009

 Anderson Grenache 2008

Anderson Grenache 2008

The Single Site Anderson Grenache is sourced from the vineyard of John Anderson, one of our very faithful and long-term vineyard supervisors. John’s vineyard is on the northern side of Nuraip road, about 1/2 kilometre east of our own Nursery vineyard. In the north east corner of his vineyard, John has a block of Grenache that was
planted in 1898. The block comprises some 983 vines over 2.9 acres or 1.17 hectares.

This is a wine of generosity that belies the aroma while showcasing vibrant colour, varietal definition, balance, richness and fruit persistence.

 Kalimna Barossa Shiraz 2007

Kalimna Barossa Shiraz 2007

From the Schiller family vineyard on Belvidere Road, approximately 1 km north of Nuriootpa on the Barossa Valley floor. Due to the difficult 2007 season which resulted in low yields, two blocks from the Schiller vineyards were hand harvested together, the Home Old Shiraz planted in 1935, and the Home Front Shiraz planted in 1969, yielded only about 10 tonnes in total. Both of these blocks have rows that run north-south and are of a sandy soil type featuring yellow sand and ochre clays over red clay.

 Moppa Barossa Grenache  2006

Moppa Barossa Grenache  2006

This Grenache is sourced from Yalumba’s “Moppa” vineyard, 2 kms north of Nuriootpa on the Barossa Valley floor. This dry grown, Bush Vine Grenache block of just under 2 acres was planted in 1954 on own roots and comprises some approximately 800 vines. The vineyard has an elevation of 270m above sea level and the soil is a Transitional Red-Brown earth in the Nuriootpa loamy sand family.

 Spring Gully Barossa Shiraz 2007

Spring Gully Barossa Shiraz 2007

From the vineyard of Marcus Rosenzweig, on Crennis Mines Road, at the western entrance to Angaston. Located high in the Angaston foothills this site has one of the most picturesque views in the Barossa. This Shiraz is from Top Block 1, a 1.3 ha (3 acre) block of clone 1654 Shiraz, planted in 1994 on Schwarzmann rootstocks. The block is north west facing, with east-west running rows and slopes noticeably down from the south to the north. This block has consistently produced a fine, spicy style of Shiraz.

 Swingbridge Vineyard Craneford Eden Valley Shiraz 2007

Swingbridge Vineyard Craneford Eden Valley Shiraz 2007

The Single Site Eden Valley Shiraz comes from
the Swingbridge vineyard located within the
Craneford area of Eden Valley. This old shiraz
block, affectionately known as the “old
shag’n’duck” block, is of unknown clones planted in 1920 on its own roots. The vineyard consists of podzolic soils which feature yellow, red, brown or grey sandy layers over leached yellow to brown clay layers.
