STUNNING PACKAGING AND QUALITY!!

"A blend of Barossa tawnies averaging 21 years of age, the NV Aged Tawny 21 Years Old is mostly red varieties, like Grenache and Mataro, but could contain others as well, including whites like Muscadelle. This is sweet and rich, full-bodied and imbued with scents and flavors of golden raisins but balanced by bright notes of orange peel and made complex through the inclusion of walnuts and a touch of rancio. This is the sort of wine that will live forever if properly stored, and even for several weeks after being opened.

Yalumba's roving ambassador, Jane Ferrari, was recently in New York to launch the winery's line of old tawnies and the latest release of its new flagship, The Caley. Both are not to be missed by lovers of Australian wine. Unfortunately, both come with price tags that will limit the likelihood of being purchased. The Samuel's Collection trio of Grenache, Shiraz and Viognier are more popularly priced, representing solid values for around $20." (WA)

Winery Notes:
A deep tawny in colour with a distinctive yellowgreen edge indicating extended wood maturation. The aroma is multi-layered with intense raisin fruits, fruitcake, anise, roasted nuts and caramelised toffee, all seamlessly wound together. The palate is richly flavoured, sweet, round and luscious, revealing dried fruits and caramelised toffee with a persistent lingering finish.
