  • THE BRIEF
  • Proprietor, Robert Hill-Smith and winemaker Louisa Rose, intrinsically linked with Eden Valley Riesling, had tasted and talked about Tasmanian Riesling on many occasions, over many years. Enthralled by the bracing steely backbone of these wines, reflecting and reminding them of the cold and wild climate of the Tasmanian Coast. Just 30kms north east of Hobart in the Coal River Valley they discovered this unique site. And the rest just happened.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    This Riesling is defined by a long spine of slaty acidity, but balanced by textured complexity, flavours of feijoa and grapefruit and aromas of tea rose, cumquat and ocean spray. It's hard to see past the perfect food match of freshly shucked Tasmanian Oysters.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Chief winemaker Louisa Rose directs the winery in a style of their own. It incorporates unique elements such as a grape vine nursery and on site cooperage. Yalumba is at the forefront of introducing new varieties and styles to the Australian palate. They include perfumed Viognier, fresh Vermentino and supple Tempranillo, with Fiano and Verdejo soon to come. Yalumba adopts a holistic approach to environmental practices, focusing on sustainability and natural resource management. They take a leading role in the industry by reducing carbon emissions, increasing biodiversity and exploring organic viticulture. Yalumba has been recognised on the international stage with numerous awards for sustainable environmental management practices. They celebrated 160 years of Barossa heritage with the development of the Barossa Old Vine charter and the release of red wines from ancient Shiraz and Grenache vines. Yalumba was founded in the Barossa Valley in 1849 by British migrant and English brewer, Samuel Smith. Smith and son planted the estate’s first vines by moonlight after purchasing a 30 acre parcel of land just beyond the south eastern boundary of Angaston. Samuel named the patch Yalumba, an aboriginal word meaning all the land around. Five generations and 160 years later, Yalumba has grown in size and stature to become Australia's oldest family owned winery. Yalumba is now run by fifth generation descendant, Robert Hill-Smith and family. Robert was appointed Managing Director of Yalumba in 1985. The Hill-Smith family is committed to an energetic and innovative company that is quality focused and young at heart.

    Quartz-green; an exercise in raw power, it has length, intensity and elemental purity, but I'd be inclined to leave it for 5 years to soften its stance a little.'
