Yalumba ‘Earthworks’ ‘Y Series’, ‘Individuals’, ‘Samuel’s Garden’ and ‘Distinguished Sites’ Releases


With five generations and over 165 years of winegrowing, Yalumba is the most historic family-owned wine business in Australia. Headed by Robert Hill-Smith, Yalumba has grown to be a global player. It has a number of tiers for their wine, ranging from the everyday ‘Y Series’ to the superb ‘Rare and Fine’ collection which has bottlings that can stand tall in the company of the world’s best. I’m an admirer of the Yalumba wines, which encompass the most contemporary styles to those that are truly traditional. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad or ordinary wine from them, everything I have tasted having merit or excellence. Here, I review a selection of new wines from the associated ‘Earthworks’ label, their ‘Y Series’, ‘Individual’, ‘Samuel’s Garden’ and ‘Distinguished Sites’ tiers. www.earthworkswines.com  http://www.yalumba.comwww.yalumba.com
