Yalumba Paradox Shiraz 2013
Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch "Yalumba" – aboriginal for "all the land around". Five generations and 160 years later Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in sizeand stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over.
PARADOX: An opinion or statement contrary toreceived opinion. The Paradox is not what you might expect from a wine from the Northern Barossa. It’s not the high octane, lots of new oak stereotypical Northern Barossa Shiraz, but rather a softer more gentle, velvet-like and savoury style of wine.
It is fermented using the natural yeasts from the vineyard, and aged with minimal winemaker influence.An inky, crimson wine. Aromas full of mixed spice and crushed black pepper, violets, fennel and hints of blueberries. The palate is like layers of velvet, with great structure showing lush red berries, olives and anise. Finishing savoury and driven by fine powdery tannins.
