Yalumba wines have a style all of their own and each have been influenced by a diverse range of elements. They have a history and tradition combined with a reputation for innovation. Yalumba has been at the forefront of introducing new wine styles to Australian drinkers over the past decade. They lead the industry in environmental performance; reducing carbon emissions, increasing biodiversity, and exploring organic viticulture. 'In addition to looking towards the future and remaining one of Australia's oldest, largest, and most prestigious family-owned companies, Yalumba's top wines should not be overlooked amongst the limelight-hogging young-gun wines that have sprung-up around the Barossa in the last 20 years.'

Magenta in colour with purple hues, the Yalumba Organic Shiraz is bursting with varietal aromas of plums and violets, sweet fruit with a forest floor finish. On the palate the aromas continue through to the palate with plums and violets joined by peppercorns and spice. This is a fruit driven, medium bodied wine with fine, soft tannins and a savoury, persistent finish.
