Yalumba The Signature 2002
Product Details

 

Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

The 2002 vintage release honours Rhonda Sexton, Key Account Sales Manager in our Victorian branch office. “I have been incredibly lucky. I have been a Yalumba salesperson since 1985 and I cannot imagine working for anyone else. I love Yalumba, who else would pick a ‘nobody’ like me for this great honour? My job has been more about forging relationships with my customers than selling; most people show a nice side sooner or later! In all this time, I have only had one nasty moment when a customer made me cry. I went next door, had a hair wash and dry then marched back into the store. I wrote the biggest order ever! Actually, it’s not so much a job, as a pleasant negotiation with friends. Nowadays, we often band together and head off to the track for a day at the races. I love frocking up for a big day out with the girls.” Ronda is industrious, always positive, genuinely caring and a good fun person. All of us who have been lucky enough to work with her can only wonder that she has not only carved out a formidable reputation in the Wine Trade of Victoria but raised a husband and three children and now moves confidently into her role of grandmother to Cooper and Jack.
