Yalumba Organic Shiraz 2013 continually strive to reduce our impact on our environment, stay involved in our community and ensure we will be making wine generation after generation. Yalumba’s sustainability ethos includes our certified organic winemaking programme, focused on crafting great wine with minimal intervention to the land and to the wines themselves.
Since 1985 Yalumba has been under the leadership of fifth generation family member Robert Hill- Smith who has taken Yalumba from a well-regarded fortified winemaker with a large, cumbersome wine portfolio, to one of the most respected fine wine producers in Australia
The coopering of oak barrels is a proud tradition at Yalumba, with a coopering history dating back to the turn of the century. With oak playing such an important part in the winemaking process, Yalumba is one of a small group of winemakers around the world to exercise full control over the quality of oak used to age their wines
The Yalumba Nursery began in 1975as a vision of the then Managing Director, Wyndham Hill-Smith and Chief Winemaker Peter Wall, so that they could a have greater control over grafted vine selection
In the vineyard, Yalumba have a holistic approach to growing grapes. This is embodied in their ‘Vitis Programme’, which states a commitment to having minimal reliance on pesticides and maximum attention to environmental improvement
Notes: This wineis crimson red with purple hues. It has notes of violets and lavender which are combined with blueberries, plums and forest floor aromas to create an appealing nose. The aromas continue to the palate and are joined by a hint of all-spice and mulberry. This is a medium bodied wine with plush soft tannins and a bright, juicy persistent finish
