Wine.comYalumba The Octavius has established areputation as one of Australia's icon Shirazwines, an amazing feat considering the firstrelease was the 1990 vintage. The 2002 vintage was exemplary. The weather remained mild and dry over the long ripening period - in fact the month of January experienced the lowest day temperatures on record. The end result was wines with great color, varietal flavors and intensity. Yalumba The Octavius Barossa Shiraz 2002 is vibrant deep ruby red in colour. Deep, dark, brooding aromas of plum, blackberry and chocolates are lifted by nuances of ground coffee, read more...licorice, violets and cassis. Soft, velvety and sumptuous, the palate is a voluptuous concoction of blackberries, cherries,dark chocolates and creamy vanilla oak, all framed by tight knit tannins. The length is remarkable and the balance exceptional. (hide)
