Yalumba Eden Valley Rousanne – A great white wine from Eden Valley

Since starting work with Viognier in the 1980s the Yalumba winemaking team has been keen to work with Roussanne, the other perfumed and exotic variety originating in the northern Rhône. Following the sucess of Viognier and other varieties of Rhône origin in the Barossa, this region was the natural place to plant. The result is this new wine varietal.

This wine is straw green in colour, showing aromas that are reminiscent of walking through wild flowers; camomile, lavender, wild rose and the suggestion of a nearby bee hive. The palate is silky yet defined; white fleshed peach, vanilla custard and cumquat layered over fresh grapefruit acidity and a fine almond meal texture with lingering hints of honey and fresh bees wax.

Yalumba has been developing its own sustainable viticulture program since the mid 1990s. This starts in the vineyard and extends to every aspect of winemaking, production, packaging and distribution. Many awards and milestones have resulted due to sustainability now being at our core. All Yalumba wines were announced vegetarian and vegan friendly as of 2011. Yalumba is the first wine company in the world to receive the Climate Protection Award from the US Environmental Protection Agency, 2007. These benefits are most obvious in your wine glass.

“Apart from economic viability and social equity, for us, sustainability is about biodiversity in our vineyards,” says Winemaker Louisa Rose. “To encourage it, we’ve done a number of things: we’ve reduced the amount of chemicals we use, incorporated an integrated pest management system, and encouraged biodiversity of vegetation in our vineyards”. All in the name of better winemaking

“Founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family owned winery. Today, the winery is owned by fifth generation descendants, Robert & Sam Hill Smith and their families.
Yalumba is determined to create wines with genuine regional character, varietal flavour and individual personality; wines that say remarkable things about some of the world’s most remarkable wine regions.”

Eden Valley

The Eden Valley is between 400 and 600 metres in the Barossa Range, part of the Mount Lofty Range. It shares it historical roots with the Barossa Valley. Yalumba has substantial vineyard holdings, and a winery at Angaston, the site of the first vines planted by founder Samuel Smith in 1849. The cool climate provides ideal conditions for the production of high quality Riesling, Chardonnay and Shiraz wine.
