Yalumba Fdr1a Museum Release 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Released in celeberation of 165 years of wine making at Yalumba. The Museum Release has been stored in pristine conditions in Yalumba's very own cool marble cellars - allowing the wine to evolve and improve. WINEMAKER COMMENTS JULY 2014 "This wine is only just starting to evolve. The colour remains a deep brick red. Aromas are cool, bright and intense with barely a hint of ageing. The Eden Valley Cabernet provides the exotic spices, confidence, elegance and poise. The Shiraz provides the warmth and concentration to the silky palate. The palate flows with personality and layers, finishing with fine emery tannins. This is Cab-Shiraz at its best." - Kevin Glastonbury, Yalumba Winemaker “...still incredibly vibrant as it moves closer to its 10th birthday” - 95pts, James Halliday, Wine Companion Deep garnet in colour with aromas of dried berries, cassis, preserved damsons, figs and spice, with a hint of cedar and tobacco. Ripe and opulent on the palate with smooth tannins, balancing acidity and a long, layered finish. This expressive fine wine marries delightfully with roast leg of lamb and can be enjoyed now until 2020.

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". Six 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. Yalumba wines have a style all of their own and each have been influenced by a diverse range of elements. Elements Yalumba likes to call 'the controllables', such as the Yalumba Vine Nursery and on-site cooperage – as well as other factors that cannot be emulated by any other winery. Yalumba’s history and tradition combined with a reputation for innovation.
