Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"Eden Valley has been home to Yalumba and its Shiraz since 1849. Taking the name from Yalumba’s oldest surviving centennial Shiraz vineyard, and grapes from a handful of our most loved vineyards, the Triangle Block pays testament to this history. There is great diversity across the Eden Valley; from vineyards that exhibit quite subtle fragrant aromatics and a much finer, more elegant palate to those that are more dense in style with darker brooding aromatics and palate richness. What links them all together is an underlying finesse and purity, the hallmark of Eden Valley Shiraz.

Triangle Block 2013 Shiraz is all dark and brooding fruits. This is a dense wine with briar and dark forest fruits like dark mulberries and blackberries. The high-toned red fruit edge reminds us that this is from the cooler hills of Eden Valley. The palate is all precision and energy with a refined purity of Shiraz. It shows an acid tightness enveloping the mid-palate fleshiness and then the gravelly tannins complete this brooding package. Cellar for 5-7 years. Drink with sage and rosemary crusted lamb with redcurrant sauce and a watercress salad."
94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2017 (2013 Vintage)
"​Ripe, fragrant and inviting, the gorgeous bouquet shows blackberry, raspberry coulis, dark chocolate, cedar and floral characters with nuances of warm spice and black pepper. The palate is concentrated and impressively weighted, but not heavy, offering refined mouthfeel and fleshy texture, superbly structured by loads of polished tannins. An elegantly opulent shiraz. At its best: now to 2023."
93/100 & Best Buy, Wine & Spirits Magazine (2013 Vintage)
"A modern take on an old-fashioned style of Eden Valley Shiraz, this is bold in flavour but not at all massive - more about stamina and grace than density and weight. Its flavours of red currants, jasmine and tar have forthright power, a zesty blast of Shiraz spice that leaves a clean, fresh taste in its wake. This performs far above its price, a wine to buy by the case and enjoy this winter into spring."
