Paradox: A person or thing made up of contradictory elements.


Made as a slightly different style for the Barossa, as Yalumba say. The Paradox is not what you might expect from a wine from the northern Barossa. It’s not the high octane, lots of new oak stereotypical northern Barossa Shiraz, but rather a softer, more gentle velvet-like and savoury style of wine.​​ It's a style that seems to suit the Kiwi palate perfectly and over the past few vintages, this has been one of our top selling Shiraz. This new vintage release 2017 has just arrived and even more than usual, is a great combination between the sweet plummy Barossan Shiraz fruit and the brooding savoury, meaty flavours. Plush and warming on the palate. This is seriously sexy!


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"The fruit for this wine has always stood out as being unique. Sourced from special plots on selected family-owned vineyards in the Barossa Valley and made to support Yalumba's winemaking philosophy of "pushing the envelope". The vines sit in centuries old iron rich solis, delivering an exciting and defining Shiraz of purity and vibrancy.

This is a wine of line and length with soft tannins, alluring aromas of violets, anise, peat and tar. Fermented in open and much loved oak vats and matured in French oak puncheons."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"Offering elegance and opulent in one, the wine shows sweet plum, blackberry, dark cocoa, cedar and fragrant spice notes on the nose, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate that's silky and flowing. It's flavoursome and persistent with delightful fruit purity together with spicy complexity, finishing impressively long and soothing. At its best: now to 2027."


4 Stars Cuisine Australian Shiraz Tasting, August 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"Another Yalumba stunner with red fruit, blueberries, brambles and lifted sweet aromas not unlike cola on the nose. A textural wine with chewy grainy tannins, vibrant intensity and silky richness. Crisp acidity and grippy tannins uplift this shiraz providing elegance, freshness and refinement."


4 Stars Cuisine Australian Shiraz Tasting, June 2021 (2017 Vintage)
"Entirely from grapes grown in the northern Barossa, this is nevertheless (as the name suggests), not your usual full-throttle jammy rendition of that terroir. An intriguingly complex and nuanced wine with sweet blackcurrant and blueberry balancing some winemaking funk, the oak is well-measured on this velvet-textured, relatively restrained Barossa shiraz."


Reviews for the 2015 vintage below…


95/100 & Top 5 Gourmet Traveller Barossa Shiraz Tasting, June 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"2015 Yalumba Paradox is beginning to show development, which is adding complexity to its red fruits and spices. The flavours are rich, yet typically of Yalumba reds, the wine has a stylish balance and leaves the mouth fresh. “A rich bouquet,” Bennie said. “Ripe plum, choc-liquorice, sage, coffee grounds, Bonox and bergamot tea. Enticing, Barossa 101 scents. Concentrated, yet fresh to taste, inky berries, ferrous tannins, more tea-like character and liquid minerality to finish. Structured yet svelte, this feels like a serious wine, a touch elegant, yet with the brute lurking beneath."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, January 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Dense, rich shiraz with sweet, ripe plum, black currant, violet, liquorice and nutty oak flavours. A supremely elegant wine with succulent sweet fruit perfectly restrained by fine tannins. Plenty of cellaring potential."


94/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, March 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Shiraz from the northern end of the Barossa Valley. Fermented in open wooden vats, and matured in French oak puncheons. It tastes sweet, deep and essential. Sweet with berried fruit, deep of toast and earth, essential sump oil characters completing a luxurious display of Barossa shiraz flavour. Oak is certainly a keen player but it’s been folded seamlessly in, as though it was always there. Tannin too is in synch. You’ll see vanilla, violet, malt and mint characters here if go looking but chances are, if you enjoy Barossa shiraz, you’ll be too busy sinking into its loveliness."

The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
