Yalumba wines have a style all of their own and each have been influenced by a diverse range of elements , elements Yalumba likes to call 'the controllables', such as the Yalumba Vine Nursery and on-site cooperage , as well as other factors that cannot be emulated by any other winery , Yalumba's history and tradition combined with a reputation for innovation.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. We are very excited to be able to make this classic Barossa style. The varieties G, S & M were created to go together, blending harmoniously in the bottle and glass. This is a wine that is layered and supple - like spiced red and black berry fruits, drizzled with chocolate. Finishing with rustic yet velvet tannins. Delicious with slow braised beef cheek or lamb shanks, garnished with crisp smoked Schultz's bacon and served with roasted root vegetables. Negociants USA Importer
"Smooth, round and generous with its ripe cherry, orange peel and spice flavors, finishing with integrity and intensity. Lingers effortlessly. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Drink now through 2016."
