Wines Vintage

The core of this wine, thought to have originated in the 1930s, was made from old vine varieties. At this time, they mainly consisted of Shiraz, Grenache, Dolcetto, Mourvèdre and Muscadelle. Fortified with fine pot-still brandy spirit produced in Yalumba’s very own still and then matured in oak of varying capacities and origins. During the past 50 years, evaporation each year has resulted in a rich and concentrated wine, with around 85% of the original wine disappearing, to become the 'angel's share'. Over the years it has been regularly blended with Amontillado to counteract the concentration of sugars and maintain dry finish of this exceptional old tawny style.
