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".
Medium crimson red with purple hues, this wine has a generous and bright aroma with sweet jube-like plum fruits, lifted pot-pourri and lavender florals and a savoury, earthy and complex background. Wrapped around a core of juicy redcurrant fruits, the palate combines layers of fleshy sweet flavours and a fine grained tannin finish. Smoothly balanced and eminently drinkable, this is a wine of medium weight but full on flavour. A perfect match with juicy char-grilled pork chops. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.more ↓ less ↑
