Five generations and 167 years later Yalumba, Australia’s most historic family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over.
The Paradox is not what you might expect from a wine from the northern Barossa. It’s not the high octane, lots of new oak stereotypical northern Barossa shiraz, but rather a softer, more gentle velvet-like and savoury style of wine.
An inky crimson wine with complex aromas full of freshly baked plum cake crushed black pepper, violets and fennel with hints of blueberries. The palate is lush with layers of velvet, great structure and flavours reminiscent of satsuma plums, olives, black pepper and anise.
The wine finishes savoury and is driven by fine powdery tannins.
