Food Pairings for Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Shiraz South Australia
In an era when consolidation seems an unstoppable force and Australian wine is becoming ever more corporate, Yalumba’s steadfast independence as Australia’s oldest family-owned winery is to be applauded. Robert Hill Smith is the fifth generation in charge since the winery’s foundation in 1849, and he manages a company that boasts independence not just of ownership, but also in many aspects of production. For example, Yalumba has its own nursery and cooperage, so all the vines and barrels used are guaranteed to be of top quality. The grapes for this Shiraz have been sourced from excellent vineyards within the Virginia and Barossa regions. Grapes were fermented in static potters and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation were followed by a three to five day maceration period that helped build wine structure. A medium-bodied wine that oozes “Shirazness”. Aromas of raspberries, violets and Indian spices, and a palate of vibrant red fruits.
