Yalumba The Octavius 2001
Product Details

 

Barossa Old Vine Shiraz

The 2000/2001 growing season was ideal. Much needed winter and spring rains filled the soils and the vines began their growth in near perfect conditions. Flowering was even and followed by a warm and dry ripening period. Grapes for Yalumba The Octavius Old Vine Barossa Shiraz 2001 were sourced from vineyards within both Eden Valley and the Barossa Valley. Only mature vines were used for this wine, with most aged between 70 and 100 years. Indigenous or 'wild' yeasts, naturally present on the grape skins, were allowed to complete fermentation. These 'wild' ferments have helped contribute to the individual complexities of this wine, creating richness and fine textures.
