    Yalumba Octavius Shiraz 2006 3Ltr, Barossa Valley

    , , ,
    Yalumba The Octavius has established a reputation as one of Australia's icon Shiraz wines, an amazing feat considering the first release was the 1990 vintage. In addition to being sourced from a number of very old vineyards in the Barossa, The Octavius is matured in American oak 'octaves' of 90 litres capacity. It is the only red wine in the world that is matured in such small barrels. The secret of the wine not becoming overpowered by the oak is that the wood is seasoned at Yalumba for eight years before the octaves are crafted. Yalumba is one of a select few wineries in the world who boast their own coopers practising the ancient craft of barrel making. A very limited release of 3ltr expressions from the Yalumba Octavius range were produced. This item is part of a vertical collection from the 2001 - 2006 vintages, and has been held in professional climate controlled storage since release. Buyers Commission of 15% excl GST applies to this item.
