Winemaker Notes

The Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache has a very expressive aroma full with layers of lush plum, blueberry coulis, currant confiture and mulled cherry notes. The palate is medium to full weighted Grenache that shows a fleshy core of steeped red berry fruit notes that weave through to a juicy mouth-watering finish. With ample tannins, all polished and embedded in the fruit.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

Kevin Galstonbury seems to have perfected the art of grenache, working with vines from 30 to 70 years old, destemming most lots, but fermenting others with their stems, allowing fermentation to being without adding yeast (a slow start that can build complexity in the wine), then inoculating half way through to finish the fermentation. The result is a fragrant 2012, the most appetite-inducing vintage of this wine we've tasted on release. It's a deep, strawberry-scented red with notes of tarragon and smoke. Rather than weighty with oak, this is clean, fresh and bright. It brings all sorts of foods to mind, from bacalao a la vizcaina to roast turkey with tarragon mashed potatoes. A by-the-case-buy.

Wine Spectator

On the lighter side, with a mix of red and black fruit in the profile, playing against an open texture and refined tannins on the harmonious finish.

Yalumba
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.
