During my travels in South Australia last week I visited Yalumba for the third (or fourth or fifth?) time since December 2003. As usual I was hosted by the ebullient Jane Ferrari, a wonderful lady who is a great ambassador for Yalumba and Australian wine as a whole.
Yalumba has an impeccable portfolio of wines. The Scribbler 2008 and The Signature 2008 were delicious. Jane was surprised that I thought it was the best tasting that I had had chez Yalumba – it must have been because I was in such a good mood.
Jane has written a very characteristic entry on her blog about my visit to the Eden Valley – which, after all the recent rain, was looking greener and lusher and lovelier than I’ve ever seen it. No wonder they called it Eden.
