Yalumba Organic Shiraz 2010
Syrah/Shiraz from South Australia, Australia
Crimson red with purple hues, the Yalumba Organic Shiraz 2010 is bursting with varietal aromas of plum, red cherry and mulberry with notes of violets and dried herbs. On the palate the flavours of plum, allspice and blueberries are supported by hints of milk chocolate. This is a fruit driven, medium bodied wine with fine, soft tannins and a bright, juicy, persistent finish. Drink now or cellar for up to three years. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Wine Enthusiast - "Not the darkest, biggest or richest Shiraz to ever come out of Australia, this is nevertheless a delightful wine. A green peppercorn note accents red raspberry and cherry fruit, with just a hint of vanilla in the background."
Australian Wine Companion - "With a production nearing one million dozen a year, the fiercely and proudly family-owned Yalumba has pushed the envelope in a multitude of ways across all wine styles and price points, and accordingly points the way for the future. This wine is made from family-owned, certified organic vineyards. Deep, bright purple-crimson, it has luscious plum and licorice flavours, and fine, savoury tannins. It has bypassed oak altogether, and is ready for drinking now."
Yalumba is Australia's oldest family-owned winery, founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith. From modest beginnings, the Yalumba Wine Company has grown to become one of Australia's most successful wineries, owned by 5th generation Robert Hill-Smith. Yalumba regularly receives accolades for its outstanding wines, and for its leadership in viticultural innovation and sustainable farming. Yalumba was the first winery in the world to be recognized with the Climate Award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (2007), earned the International Green Apple Gold Award from House of Commons (U.K. 2011), and was the first winery outside the United States to win the BRIT International Award of Excellence in Sustainable Winegrowing Competition (2013). The Yalumba portfolio commences with the fresh and flavorsome varietal wines of the Y Series, then moves up to the Samuel’s Garden line to capture the essence of the classic Rhone-influenced varietals of the Barossa and Eden Valleys, explores sub-regional complexity through innovative, modern wines in the Hand Pickedline, and culminates with the coveted, collectible Yalumba Rare and Fine wines including Signature and Octavius.
