Yalumba Organic, Y Series, Galway and Earthworks Releases


Although Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family-owned winemaker, the approach encompasses an extremely modern outlook whilst retaining traditional values and styles when appropriate. Most of the wines are indeed contemporary in character, possessing fresh fruitiness and elegance, and are designed to be able to be enjoyed in their youth. This does not mean such wines cannot age, as balance is the key to good development. Yalumba also has its traditionally styled wines too, as classicism is truly ageless. However, the modern face of Yalumba’s wines embrace all that is positive about elegance and encompasses the issues that face the world in these times. Hence the ‘Organic’ wines are a nod to sustainability. The ‘Y Series’ wines have always been accessible to all people. This applies to the ‘Galway Vintage’ range that refers the Yalumba’s Barossa history, but steered towards tradition. The new ‘Earthworks’ range supports the idea of terroir and regionality, these being buzz-words in wine. Here, I review a selection of Yalumba’s contemporary wines. www.yalumba.com
