Yalumba Galway 2014 Shiraz and 2013 Malbec, and Y Series Range

30-May-2016
With a history stretching back to 1849, Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family-owned winery. The company’s survival, growth and blossoming can be accredited to Robert Hill-Smith who took control of the Barossa business in 1985. His vision of producing modern table wines which respected the traditional styles while introducing elegant and innovative varieties and bottlings put Yalumba into the forefront of the interested consumer and connoisseur market. His teams of viticultural, winemaking and marketing people have always had quality and value as key points of difference. In 2015, Robert Hill-Smith vacated Yalumba’s managing director role to allow Nick Waterman assume the position. Robert Hill-Smith is now Chairman of the Board of Yalumba; he remains one of the modern Australian wine heroes in my and many people’s eyes. Here, I review the ‘Galway Vintage’ 2014 Shiraz and 2013 Malbec, and a range of ‘Y-Series’ wines which show exemplary style, accessibility and value. www.yalumba.com
