Description

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch "Yalumba" – aboriginal for "all the land around".
Five generations and 160 years later Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian
wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over.

Winemaking Notes

Grapes for the Yalumba Y Series Shiraz 2011 have been sourced from diverse vineyard regions within South Australia. The grapes were fermented in both static and rotary fermenters. Both the warm temperatures at onset of fermentation and the three-to-five day post ferment maceration helped extract soft fleshy tannins, which builds wine structure.

Growing Conditions

The 2011 season was cool with consistent rainfall throughout the season. Where the vineyards were well managed and winemakers patient, the resultant grapes
benefited from the cooler season with lifted aromatics and fine natural acidity.
