The collection will feature seven wines, showcasing varieties and blends which are iconic to both the Barossa and Yalumba and which celebrate the winery’s heritage, heartland and estate.
Samuel’s Collection includes Barossa Shiraz, Barossa Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon, Barossa Bush Vine Grenache, Barossa Grenache Shiraz Mataro, Eden Valley Viognier, Eden Valley Chardonnay, and Eden Valley Roussanne.
Yalumba Head of Winemaking Louisa Rose explained some of the thinking behind the wines in the collection.
“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 winemaking philosophy,” she said.
Yalumba Executive Director of Marketing, Nicky Gameau added: “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.
“The wines in this collection showcase Yalumba’s Barossa style, a favourite across the world, and are wonderful complements to different foods and occasions.”
All Samuel’s Collection wines are sustainably grown and vegan friendly and will be available in Australia and all major export markets from 1 March 2019.
