On Friday 1 March 2019, Yalumba launch Samuel’s Collection; the gateway to Yalumba’s premium wine folio.
170 years since Yalumba founder Samuel Smith planted the first vine, Yalumba release Samuel’s Collection in honour of Smith’s spirit of independence and conviction to invest in the land, and a simple plan to make great wine. This collection of fine wine celebrates Yalumba’s heartland, its heritage, longevity and estate with seven wines, showcasing varieties and blends iconic to both Barossa and Yalumba.
Samuel’s Collection includes Barossa Shiraz, Barossa Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon, Barossa Bush Vine Grenache, Barossa Grenache Shiraz Mataro, Eden Valley Viognier, Eden Valley Chardonnay, and Eden Valley Roussanne.
“Samuel’s Collection celebrates the legacy established by Samuel Smith 170 years ago when he planted some of Australia’s first grape vines here in Barossa,” said Yalumba Executive Director of Marketing, Nicky Gameau.
“The wines in this collection showcase Yalumba’s Barossa style, a favourite across the world, and are wonderful complements to different foods and occasions”.
Yalumba Head of Winemaking Louisa Rose said “understanding that wine drinkers are seeking more youthful, generous and fresher wines, we have crafted Samuel’s Collection to fit this style, while still showing the hallmarks expressed in the Yalumba winemaking philosophy”.
Samuel’s Collection are the first wines to feature the new Yalumba Clocktower iconography which will now be present across all brand material.
All Samuel’s Collection wines are sustainably grown and vegan friendly.
Samuel’s Collection will be available in Australia and all major export markets from 1 March 2019. I look forward to tasting these wines on Let’s Taste!
