Yalumba GEN Organic Shiraz 2021

The sole red wine in Yalumba’s new GEN. They are “five certified organic wines, sustainably made at the Yalumba winery” which “embodies the brand’s sustainable journey and commitment to the next generation, with a fierce determination for the future.” From 2022 the GEN wines will be Sustainable Winegrowing Australia (SWA) certified and the winery will ensure all leftover stalks, seeds and skins are used for under vine mulch. The labels are made from post-consumer waste and FSC-certified paper.

Yalumba, GEN, Organic, Shiraz, South Australia, 2021


Bright to bruise purple. Fresh and fragrant: Violets and berry coulis with licorice dark sweetness, plum jam, black peppercorns, CWA Fruit Cake, parmesan rind and fresh leather gloves. Slinky and fruit forward. Brightly fruited with impressive floral lift. There’s good spice and soft but firm tannin. No need to think about this one, plenty to enjoy.

RRP: $22
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
