Deep crimson purple in colour, this wine shows intense youthful aromas of dark, ripe cherries, Christmas pudding, Indian spice and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and ripe and embodies a classic South Australian Shiraz, with layers of ripe blackberries and Christmas cake, surrounded by soft, juicy, ripe tannins. This wine drinks perfectly with whole roast suckling pig; or shallot pancakes with black vinegar dipping sauce.

Yalumba is now five generations in and remains one of Australia's most famous wineries. It was in 1852 that Samuel Smith purchased land in South Australia and the first wine came a year later. In another few years Samuel Smith starts donating his wines to local shows - a tradition which remains today.
The winery was passed through the family and continued to develop with Australia's taste and trends. Yalumba, with it's rapidly growing and quality offering was also becoming part of Australia's history. An example of this is that the Yalumba Four Crown "Port" was served "at the most remote Christmas party in the world" - a party in Antarctica in 1929. This paved way for Yalumba becoming a recognised sponsor in sporting and cultural events, and continuing to give back to its country.
