Yalumba Y Series Tempranillo 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.
The Yalumba Y Series of varietal wines express the lively personality and colourful 160-plus-year history of the Hill-Smith family of Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery. These are fresh and flavoursome fruit-driven wine styles of quality and consistency, highlighting the true regional character of South Australia's most renowned viticultural areas and confirming Yalumba's reputation as Australia's finest independent winemaker.
The 2012/13 growing season opened with a drier than average winter and a much drier than average spring and summer. Temperatures through spring and summer and then into autumn were warmer than average. This produced lower yields per vine in Tempranillo leading to a favourable skin to pulp ratio in the berries. The resultant wines show outstanding quality and personality, reflected here in this moreish Tempranillo.
Dark chocolate, fennel seed, black cherry and oregano. Plush blueberry fruit with a classic mocha-choc tannin profile. A moreish wine to be enjoyed with tapas, pizza or char-grilled red meats.
