Yalumba The Caley named in 100 Best list
Jukes also listed Yalumba The Caley Cabernet & Shiraz 2013 in the Great Australian Red category.
Yalumba is one of only four Australian wineries to be featured in Jukes’ list every year since its inception in 2004.
Yalumba Managing Director Nick Waterman said he was “delighted that Yalumba and the HillSmith Family Vineyards are well represented once again.”
“Matthew Jukes is a champion of Australian wine and in particular the Great Aussie Red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz,” he added.
“To once again lead the tally of highest number of headline wines over the last sixteen years is a testament to our commitment to the land and the wines that we produce from it, which began with our founder Samuel Smith 170 years ago,” Waterman said.
Yalumba had three wines in the list: Yalumba The Caley Cabernet & Shiraz 2013 – Great Australian Red category; Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling 2018 – Riesling category; Jansz Tasmania Premium Rosé NV – Sparkling category/
