Yalumba is a winery located near Angaston, South Australia in the Barossa Valley. It was founded by a British brewer, Samuel Smith, who emigrated to Australia with his family from Wareham, Dorset in August 1847 aboard the ship 'China'. Upon arriving in Australia in December, Smith built a small house on the banks of the River Torrens.
He lived there less than a year before moving north to Angaston where he purchased a 30-acre (120,000 m2) block of land on the settlement's south eastern boundary. He named his property "Yalumba" after an indigenous Australian word for "all the land around".
In 1849 Samuel Smith, along with his son Sidney, planted Yalumba's first vineyards, beginning the Yalumba dynasty. Today Yalumba is Australia's oldest family-owned winery.A winery that produces fine wine with a reputation for exceptional quality. All the wines are an evident result of a well thought out creation process.
Tasting Note: Spearmint, liquorice, spicy plum, star anise, subtle vanilla and blackcurrant. Rich fleshy plum and fruitcake flavours with a long and persistent spicy and juicy finish.
