Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"Named after Yalumba founder Samuel Smith, Shiraz grapes come from diverse Barossa vineyards aged between 10 to more than 35 years old. The goal is accessibility, with a strong varietal and regional accent – and it hits the back of the net. Very Barossa, with generous Black Forest gateaux-like cherry and mocha oak (26% new French, American and Hungarian hogsheads, barriques and octaves), juicy blackberry and plum fruit and meaty, peppery undertones. (Drink between 2020-2026)" - Sarah Ahmed (Nov 2020)

93 Points - James Suckling:
"A rich, blackberry and raspberry nose. Softly supple palate with a fresh and vivid core of ripe raspberry, red-plum and blackberry flavors. Nicely rounded out, with some good concentration. Drink now." - (Sept 2021)

90 Points - Wine Spectator:

Dense, dark and fleshy, featuring notes of black licorice, iodine, blackberry, blueberry and black tea, with a thread of minerality and herbal accents that gain intensity on the finish. Drink now. 15,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported. - MaryAnn Worobiec (Oct 2022)
