Drink now or cellar for up to 8 years. No need to decant before serving. Yalumba is one of Australia’s oldest wineries with a proud family legacy stretching back to British brewer Samuel Smith who emigrated from Dorset in England. He soon purchased a 30-acre lot in the Barossa Valley which he named after the indigenous word for “all the land around”, and planted the first vines here together with his son in 1849. These days Yalumba is loved by wine enthusiasts across the world for their classic Australian Cabernet-Shiraz blends which have been made on the estate since the 1960s. Samuel’s Collection wines honour the vision and dedication of the original founder whose legacy is continued today by the fifth and sixth generations of the family, Robert Hill-Smith and his daughter Jessica. This punchy Cabernet Sauvignon is a great example of the classic Yalumba style with plenty of ripe fruit flavours underlaid with robust tannins and a well-built structure. On the nose there are bold plum, cherry and dark berry notes while the first sip reveals a solid core of crushed wild berries and hints of spice and toast from the 11 months of ageing in new French and Hungarian oak barrels. A good partner for barbecued meats or game dishes.
