Stylish wine, with bramble notes alongside blackberry fruit and ironstone; oak comes forward on the palate, supported by mocha, leather and chocolate." "This is a bright, elegant expression of Shiraz that shows its blend of fruit from Barossa Valley and the cooler sub-region of Eden Valley. The bouquet is lifted with boysenberry, plum, pepper, anise, and a hint of roasted grain. On the palate the wine is juicy with silky fine tannins and good length.".

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 size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over.
Yalumba also leads the industry in environmental performance; reducing carbon emissions, increasing biodiversity and exploring organic viticulture. As well as looking to the future, it has been celebrating its 160-year-old Barossa heritage by developing an Old Vine charter, and releasing reds from ancient Shiraz and Grenache plants.
Yalumba hand-picked Barossa Shiraz Viognier is a truly magical blend of wine, with its intensity of color, heady aromas and luscious mouth-filling palate. The wine is made by co-fermenting Viognier grapes (usually between 5-15%) with Shiraz.
