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.

Strawberry tops, herbs, wild grasses and hints of white pepper and faded exotic spices. On the palate this shows good depth of fruit, dark raspberry and strawberry notes with a fine mineral vein that adds fine cut through the richness. This really exhibits fine balance, with solid supporting structure lurking just under the wonderfully transparent yet faceted fruit of the mid-palate. This is nice and tense right through juicy finish. Nice detail here, though this is showing a bit chunkier than the last time I enjoyed it. 88pts

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 good acidity and a faint suggestion of sweetness accentuating the fruit. The tannins are soft yet offer some support particularly on the moderately long juicy fruit finish. Fruity like it’s supposed to be. 87pts

Lovely 100% grenache! Especially for the price!! Great hints of cherry, raspberry, cranberry, and a little bark essence. On the palate the fruit speaks out. A winner in my book.

Light, bright violet. Fresh raspberry and flowers on the perfumed nose. Supple and open-knit, offering gently sweet red fruit flavors and a velvety texture. Finishes on a peppery note, with good cling and very soft tannins that come on late. Easygoing and ready to drink now.

Light, clear crimson. Yes, its in the Barossa Valley, not McLaren Vale style, but a particularly good example, with fresh red fruits and a vibrant finish, tannins present but no more, oak irrelevant.

Bush Vine Grenache 2008 - Yalumba: Bush Vine Grenache 2008 - Rotwein von YalumbaDieser besondere Grenache stammt von 70 Jahre alten Rebstöcken, die in Buschform gezogen werden (bush vine).Im Glas zeigt sich ein mittelintensives Purpurrot. Sein Bukett verströmt ein komplexes Aroma von Pflaumen, Schokolade und Trüffel. Der Gaumen wird von Kräutern, Süßkirschen und Zimt berührt, ein kräftiger Rotwein mit mittelkräftigem Körper und frischer, aber gut eingebundener Säure. Die feinkörnigen und weichen Tannine geben dem Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache 2008 den letzten Schliff. Schöne Fruchtnoten begleiten auch das Finale. Schmeckt sehr gut zu Bohneneintopf, Filetsteak oder Schnittkäse.    Weingut: YalumbaLand: AustralienRegion: Eden ValleyRebsorte: GrenacheInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,75 g/lRestsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: 3 bis 5 JahreFassreife: in Barriques gereiftEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 bis 18°C Rotwein > Australien > Eden Valley
