2015 Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Barossa Valley – Throughout Barossa and Coonawarra, pockets of carefully tended vines have been hand-selected to provide the fruit for their very best and most sought-after wines. Crafted only when all the elements of viticulture and winemaking interact perfectly, their Rare & Fine wines are the very best examples of the varieties and blends that have found a natural home here in Australia during the past five generations.
Encompassing everything their family stands for and the perfect representation of their history and ethos, The Signature is a sentimental favourite. A classic Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, the first vintage release of The Signature was in 1962. Since then, this outstanding wine has acknowledged more than 56 Signatories; people who have enhanced the traditions and culture of Yalumba.
The majority of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are sourced from five vineyards in the Barossa Valley, as well as one vineyard in Eden Valley. Diversity in the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard selection provides rich lifted aromatics and palate structure. The Shiraz grapes include old vine plantings, the oldest having being planted in 1925.
Stylish, approachable and very drinkable. This wine opens with perfumed fruits, showing blue exotic florals, pomegranate and cranberry, with milk chocolate and liquorice depth. The palate is medium weighted with a fresh, tight acidity carrying through.
To enjoy this wine at its best we recommend decanting.
