Wines Brand
 

Distinguished sites, special blocks and Grand Cru vineyards; these expressions all refer to places that consistently produce the grapes from which the world’s great wines are made. Yalumba Distinguished Site wines are carefully sourced and masterfully crafted to capture the true essence of specific, special sites within the Barossa.

 FDR1A 2011

FDR1A 2011

In 1974 Yalumba created an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz blend known simply as FDR1A. The wine soon became a legend in winemaking circles, appreciated both for its fruit expression and restrained power.

 FDR1A Museum Release 2005

FDR1A Museum Release 2005

To celebrate our 165th year of winemaking we are releasing something special from the Yalumba Museum. This elegant wine has been stored in our cool marble cellars which lie beneath the Yalumba Winery. Maturing for years under these perfectly pristine conditions allows the wine to evolve and improve.

 FSW8B  2014

FSW8B  2014

Our FSW8B vines are encouraged to grow a dense canopy reducing air flow and encouraging the infection by and growth of Botrytis cinerea. Botrytised grapes are difficult to press and several pressings are required to liberate all of the viscous nectar. Good quality juices are hard to ferment, so a special yeast strain is used to balance the ideal sugar levels, allowing the wine to find its natural balance.

 Paradox Shiraz 2010

Paradox Shiraz 2010

PARADOX: An opinion or statement contrary to
received 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.

 Shiraz Viognier 2012

Shiraz Viognier 2012

The concept of blending Shiraz and Viognier was derived from the great French wine region of the Northern Rhône – the Côte Rôtie area in particular. Using only the best Eden Valley fruit, the Yalumba Hand Picked Shiraz + Viognier is rich in concentrated fruit flavour.
