Yalumba Y-Series, Organic, Samuel’s Garden and Earthworks Releases

28-Mar-2018

Although Yalumba has a history stretching back to 1849, this Angaston Barossa-based winemaker is thoroughly modern in its business and winemaking. The vast majority of the wines can be described as contemporary, being based on elegant fruit expression along with the all-important regionality or ‘sense of place’. These wines are crafted to be enjoyed young, and are stylistically accessible. The ‘Y-Series’ wines have this role. Being contemporary necessitates awareness of the environment and health, so Yalumba includes an ‘Organic’ range. But Yalumba has not forsaken tradition, and make wines that show classic Barossa character, as well as the Yalumba signature, developed over time, and the ‘Samuel’s Garden’ wines are these. I review new releases of Yaulmba wines under these ranges, as well as an Earthworks Cabernet Sauvignon, a brand that capitalises on Yalumba’s 160 years of intimacy with the Barossa region. www.yalumba.comwww.earthworkswines.com
