Sam Wigan Dogs Landscape

An avid lover of food, Sam has been an integral part of Yalumba’s exploration into new and emerging food friendly varieties such as Vermentino, Tempranillo, Verdejo and Garganega.

Having grown up in the Barossa, it was inevitable that Sam would become part of the wine industry as soon as school was out. With two vintages under his belt, Sam started at Yalumba in 2001 and has been addicted ever since.

Out of work you’ll find Sam in the kitchen, pairing steak tartare with Yalumba Old Bush Vine Grenache. In his time away from the winery he loves playing footy for the Nuriootpa Tigers and taking his dogs Baxter and Pedro for runs in the Valley.

The 2012 Malbec is crimson in colour with bright aromas of kirsch, cassis and blueberry and underlying hints of crushed fennel, black pepper and mocha. This wine has great vivacity on the palate showing cranberry, rhubarb and slatey tannins. Great with seared venison and a juniper berry reduction.
