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 more than 150 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.
The wine is intensely rich and predominantly fruit driven. The colour is deep cherry red with purple hues and the nose is rich in violets, cherries and plums, with hints of licorice and a dusty smoky oak overtone. The palate explodes with sweet fruit of plums and dark, juicy red berries. It is very well structured with tight and firm tannins, finishing with a rich balanced extract that lingers deliciously.
Deep and intense, the wine displays full palate weight with powerful fruit and soft American oak which was hand-coopered at Yalumba - a wine made for longevity, very much The Signature style.
