Barossa Valley Wine

The region is now rightly asserting not only its importance to the wine industry but the inestimable value of its storehouse of century-old vines and historic wineries. The twists and turns of the Barossa Valley are at times as clearly defined as those of the world famous Napa Valley in California. At other times they disappear into a series of rolling hills and transverse valleys, which can easily disorient as well as charm the first time visitor. In consequence, site, slope and aspect all vary widely. The climate of the region has often been unfairly characterised as very warm but, in fact, in its lower parts it is only moderately so and at higher altitudes quite cool, as indicated by the Williamstown details given below.

  • Yalumba Grenache Barossa Bush Vine 2009


    Quite fruity on the nose with spicy herbal shadings to the core of raspberry and tart strawberry tops aromas all framed with a hint of toasty oak. In the mouth this has the intensity of Grenache which can be be powerful and rich but not weighty, in fact a bit hollow at times like a giant balloon of strawberry fruit which fills your mouth with go...

    ~ Editor's Choice ~Quite perfumed on the nose, with aromas of apple blossoms, dry tree bark, quince and limes.

A very slight whiff of dill that blew off after a few minutes. Loads of dark fruit accompanied by some spice and cedar notes. Medium to medium long finish with black licorice on t... Read More
