Yalumba Patchwork Barossa Shiraz 2014/2016 Wine 75 cl (Case of 3)
- Since 1985 Yalumba has been under the leadership of fifth generation family member Robert Hill- Smith who has taken Yalumba from a well-regarded fortified winemaker with a large, cumbersome wine portfolio, to one of the most respected fine wine producers in Australia.
- The coopering of oak barrels is a proud tradition at Yalumba, with a coopering history dating back to the turn of the century. With oak playing such an important part in the winemaking process, Yalumba is one of a small group of winemakers around the world to exercise full control over the quality of oak used to age their wines.
- The Yalumba Nursery began in 1975as a vision of the then Managing Director, Wyndham Hill-Smith and Chief Winemaker Peter Wall, so that they could a have greater control over grafted vine selection.
- In the vineyard, Yalumba have a holistic approach to growing grapes. This is embodied in their 'Vitis Programme', which states a commitment to having minimal reliance on pesticides and maximum attention to environmental improvement.
- Notes: This wine has juicy dark cherry, licorice spice and wild flower notes that lead into a brambly herbal savour with smoky earth tones. On the palate a dark mulberry and plum fruit appears with a succulent jazzy acidity lifting the gravelly fruit.

Vintage 2012 in the Barossa could be summed up as a vintage without extremes, ensuring healthy balanced fruit. After harvest in march a combination of small 8 tonne and medium size 25 tonne static fermenters were used to ferment the grapes with natural or wild yeasts. The majority of parcels were then run to barrel, the result being a wine with excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity. Open while the lamb is in the oven and have a second bottle on hand. It comes with the vintage information as follows: Total Acidity: 6.5 g per litre; pH: 3.60; Total SO2 :100 mg per litre.
From the manufacturer
The coopering of oak barrels is a proud tradition at Yalumba, with a coopering history dating back to the turn of the century. With oak playing such an important part in the winemaking process, Yalumba is one of a small group of winemakers around the world to exercise full control over the quality of oak used to age their wines.
The Yalumba cooperage works closely with several French tonnellerues and American stave mills to select French, Hungarian and American staves. These staves are then stacked and left to season in their country of origin for two years before arriving at the Yalumba cooperage.
The Yalumba Nursery began in 1975 as a vision of the then Managing Director, Wyndham Hill-Smith and Chief Winemaker Peter Wall, so that they could a have greater control over grafted vine selection. At the time it was difficult to find quality grafted material, and a nursery would provide control over the planting material in the vineyards as well as an opportunity to begin selecting and importing vine material from overseas.
For many years the Yalumba Nursery serviced the needs of the business and very quickly gained a reputation for quality, consistency and innovation, with Yalumba Vineyard Managers and Winemakers providing invaluable feedback and insights on clone and rootstock performance.
With more than 168 years of winemaking behind them, Yalumba understand the need to make the right choices for the environment, the local community and the wines.
In the vineyard, Yalumba have a holistic approach to growing grapes. This is embodied in their ‘Vitis Programme’, which states a commitment to having minimal reliance on pesticides and maximum attention to environmental improvement.
