About the wine

Super Premium Barossa Shiraz!
  • Simon ‘Sorby’ Adams is a Barossa legend. This super premium shiraz is modelled after a wine extremely close to his heart. Yep, he made the iconic Yalumba Octavius from inception in 1988 right through to 1999.

  • Juicy, rich and supple with a complex mix of red and blue berries and an underlying power of mocha and coffee. This delicious character is a direct result of maturation in the oak that has been extra air dried prior to barrel making.

  • Amazing length of flavour and richness on the palate and a long future that will reward cellaring for 15 years.

     

Best before
Ageing 15 - 20 years under the right cellaring conditions.

Serving advice
No need for decanting until at least 2025.

Food match
It has to be char grilled sirloin steak!

Meet the winemaker - Simon 'Sorby' Adams

  • Simon Sorby Adams is one of the most influential and acclaimed winemakers in Australia, with 40 years experience in the Barossa.

  • He was instrumental (firstly as Senior, then Chief Winemaker) at Yalumba for twenty years, in establishing the truly iconic international reputation for its masthead premium wines.

  • Throughout his award-winning career, Sorby’s philosophy of seeking out the finest grapes from the best vineyards in the Barossa and high Eden to create exceptional wines, has been at the very heart of everything he does.
