The philosophy behind the Chateau Yaldara Wine Collection stems from its founder Hermann Thumm who first started crafting Barossa Wines in 1947 and was one of the regions first boutique winemakers.
Thumm pushed the boundaries of Australian winemaking through his appetite for experimentation with wine techniques, styles and blends. Today, we embrace this approach through the crafting of balanced, structural wines that showcase the harmony of varietal integrity from the select premium South Australian wine regions of the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, Adelaide Hills, Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale.
With over 160 years of winemaking heritage, the Barossa is one of the world’s most acclaimed wine regions.
It enjoys a Mediterranean climate characterised by cool, wet winters, with temperatures between 8°C to 20°C and warm, dry summers where temperatures are generally between 30°C to 35°C.
Nestled at the foot of the Barossa Ranges, the Rowland Flat sub-region is located between the towns of Tanunda and Lyndoch and is home to the 1847 Estate Vineyards. The sub-region covers a small yet unique area and is noted for the bright red colour of its soils. The soils are mixed with a wide assortment of roughly rounded pebbles, many of which are granitic and not found anywhere else in the Barossa.
