Trophy for Champion Single Variety Red – New World Wine Awards 2022
Gold Medal & 95/100 – New World Wine Awards 2022
We sell a lot of Spanish Tempranillo wines, but it is rare for us to offer one from across the ditch. This is a delicious wee number from the Yalumba team and a bit of a surprise package. Nothing too serious just a great priced quaffing red.
Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"The Y Series is a collection of iconic classics and exciting new varietals. Each wine is authentically crafted with fruit from South Australia’s most celebrated wine regions. At Yalumba, we believe that one good wine leads to another. The Y Series was created with that belief in mind. We look forward to sharing our love of wine with you as you explore the Y Series.
Bright crimson in colour. Alluring aromas of blueberry, black cherry, violet and tomato leaf. Silky and juicy on the palate with loads of dark berry fruit that leads to a moreish, mocha-tannin finish."
95/100 NWWA, Judges Comments (2021 Vintage)
"Australia's oldest family-owned winery, Yalumba offers everyday Y Series wines all the way up to their ultra-premium icons, and delivers excellent value at every level. This Champion Single Variety Red is plump and fruit-forward showing Black Doris plum, olive and subtle spice nuances combined with fleshy texture and silky-smooth tannins. Tomato-based pasta is just the thing with this beauty."
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2021 (2021 Vintage)
"Youthfully charming and fragrant with Black Doris plum, floral, thyme and almond notes, it's attractively expressed on the palate displaying ripe fruit flavours and smooth texture. Well rounded and lingering with a juicy finish. At its best: now to 2025."
