Louisa Rose on becoming the 47th Yalumba signatory: S6E9

In this episode of the podcast we meet Yalumba’s head of winemaking, Louisa Rose, the signatory on the newly released Yalumba The Signature 2016.

Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz was first released in 1966.

Every vintage has been dedicated to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the culture and traditions of Yalumba, one of Australia’s most important family-owned wineries.


Previously honoured as winemaker of the year by multiple organisations, Louisa Rose joined Yalumba in 1992.

She is the current chair of the Australian Wine Research Institute and a Grand Master of the Barossa Valley fraternity, Barons of Barossa.
