2012 The Octavius Old Vine Shiraz, Yalumba

Barossa Valley, AustraliaVintage: 2012

Signifying Yalumba’s commitment to Barossa Shiraz, this is a truly individual wine, handcrafted, handmade and matured in fine French oak and Yalumba coopered American octave barrels. These unique barrels, which offered inspiration for the wine’s name, are just one of the many harmonious components in the symphony that is Yalumba The Octavius Shiraz.  Sourced 64% from Eden Valley and 36% from Barossa Valley with an average vine age of 96 years. The Eden Valley Shiraz provides the exotic aromatics and seamless palate structure, while the Barossa Valley Shiraz provides richness, density and concentration.

This 2012 vintage opens with aromas of fresh, ripe raspberry and blueberry, then powdery exotic spices, violets, wildflowers and black cherries. It has a plump and harmonious palate – a brooding, dense, dark mouthful of delicious Barossa Shiraz. A supple beauty that isn’t about aggressive power. The flavour is tremendously long, with a rush of energy that will carry this wine for many years.

Why we love it

The Vineyards

Barossa – Eden Valley and Barossa Valley
Barossa is arguably the single most famous wine region in Australia. Barossa includes both Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, making it one of the only areas in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions.
Yalumba is privileged to have access to some of the oldest vineyards in the world in Barossa Valley, including 1889 bush vine Grenache and 1908 Shiraz.

At the inner sanctum of Coonawarra, on the prized terra rossa soil, lies Yalumba’s Coonawarra estate, The Menzies Vineyard. Comprised predominantly of Cabernet Sauvignon vines, this single-vineyard is committed to growing premium quality fruit reflecting distinctive varietal characters of the region.

Wrattonbully’s cool climate, plentiful high-quality artesian water and well-drained terra rossa soils led wine companies to plant large areas of mainly red grape varieties.
