YALUMBA has unveiled a new regional wine range in tribute to company founder Samuel Smith.
Yalumba launched Samuel’s Collection; described as “the gateway to Yalumba’s premium wine portfolio” in March. It is 170 years since Smith planted his first vines in the Barossa, and Yalumba is releasing Samuel’s Collection “in honour of his spirit of independence”. The collection of fine wine, with an RRP of $28, will celebrate Yalumba’s heartland and its heritage, with seven wines showcasing varieties and blends iconic to both the Barossa and Yalumba. Samuel’s Collection includes Barossa shiraz, Barossa shiraz and 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 wine-making philosophy.”
Samuel’s Collection will be the first wines to feature the new Yalumba Clocktower iconography which will now be present across all brand material. All Samuel’s Collection wines will be sustainably grown and vegan friendly.
