Description

Octavius is the finest straight Shiraz wine that Yalumba make, only trumped in the hierarchy by The Reserve and lately, The Caley (both Cabernet Shiraz). Made in only the finest years since 1990, Octavius has become an amazingly fine wine over the years, this 2014 vintage following in the finest tradition of the Hill-Smith family. Matured for 20 months in French and American oak barrels crafted by Yalumba's own inhouse coopers, Yalumba Octavius is decadent and soulful in its youth but has the gravitas to cellar for 20 years with ease.

Smells

Dark, brooding nose showing cedar, dark chocolate, Xmas cake, plum, cassis and boysenberry. A hint of new leather too for good measure.

Tastes

Luxurious liquorice flavours flood the fiercely concentrated palate, the wave of dark fruit giving way to plush pillowy tannins that guide the long finish. Quite a refined and measured Octavius this year, it looks like one of the greats already as it balances its effortless power with a refreshing refinement. Cellar 5 to 25 years at least, and enjoy its magical evolution.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
