Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fans of Aussie Shiraz rejoice! Yalumba story teller Jane Ferrari describes this wine as B classified Shiraz. And that's not B for Bad. Simply means "little brother" to some of Yalumbas's bigger Shiraz.
Full bodied and packed with fruit. Red berries, plum, cassis and sour cherry. Black pepper, anise, plum pudding palate with round tannins balanced with lots of fruit. Long sour cherry and herbal finish.
Winemaker suggests several years of aging left in this wine but great now. Decant 30+ minutes. Burnt BBQ ribs, herb encrusted roast beef suggestions.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

This is the second wine to Yalumba The Octavius. A really traditional Shiraz with aromas of red liquorice, fermented cherries and lots of spices. The tannins are melted. A crowd pleaser if you are a fan of Australian Shiraz.
