Yalumba to launch new Samuel’s Collection Posted by: Alana House January 18, 2021 Yalumba is counting down to the launch of Samuel’s Collection; the gateway to Yalumba’s premium wine folio. On Friday, March 1, 2019, Samuel’s Collection will be available in Australia and all major export markets and promises to offer something a little different for Yalumba fans. Yalumba Head of Winemaking Louisa Rose said: “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.” Samuel’s Collection are the first wines to feature the new Yalumba Clocktower iconography which will now be present across all brand material. It’s been 170 years since Yalumba founder Samuel Smith planted his first vine – Samuel’s Collection honours Smith’s spirit of independence and conviction to invest in the land and make great wine. The collection celebrates Yalumba’s heartland, its heritage, longevity and estate with seven wines, showcasing varieties and blends iconic to both Barossa and Yalumba. 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. “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,” said Yalumba Executive Director of Marketing, Nicky Gameau. “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.
