Selected from the Estate vineyards of Chateau Yaldara at Lyndoch in the Barossa Valley. Crushed into open wooden fermenters and splashed twice daily. Pressed out into 20% New French oak for 6 months to maintain fruit purity.
Chateau Yaldara Foundations Petit Verdot delivers to you a lively wine, bursting with floral aromas, a core of dark berry purity and a salivating spiced/mineral palate that draws you back for a second helping.
The 2016 Vintage saw a dry spring and summer leading into the growing season, but with a relatively cool ripening period. This resulted in lower than average crops, with very small berry size. The resultant wines are intense in flavour and tannin structure with a dense core of dark, black fruit. The ability of these wines to age will be immense. This Grenache was de-stemmed into traditional open concrete fermenters with heading down boards. Matured in seasoned oak barrels for 12-15 months with minimal filtration before bottling.
Chateau Yaldara Foundations Shiraz delivers to you a luscious wine, bursting with spicy oak aromas, enveloped by intense plum fruit purity and a rich chocolate/mocha length of palate that draws you back for a second helping.
Chateau Yaldara Foundations Sauvignon Blanc delivers to you an aromatic floral wine, with an intense core of grapefruit, gooseberry and lime zest; the zingy finish will draw you back for a second helping.
Chateau Yaldara Foundations Cabernet Sauvignon delivers to you an intense wine, supported by herbal and mint aromas, built around dense cherry and blackcurrant purity and a savoury length of palate that draws you back for a second helping.
