Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2016

Yalumba is pleased to present the 46th vintage release of The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz – a superb 2015 vintage that honours Darrell Kruger. Yalumba raises a glass of this wine to celebrate Darrell’s years of service, commencing in 1975 working for Yalumba in the Barossa vineyards. Darrell lives by the old saying “if you enjoy what you do, you never work a day in your life,” and over the years Darrell rose to become Barossa Vineyard Manager, a position he still holds to this day.

Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2016

Each vintage of The Signature is named in honour of an individual who has made
a significant contribution to the culture and traditions of Yalumba. It is with great
pleasure we present our 2016 vintage to Louisa Rose. Named Australian Winemaker
of the Year in 2008 by Gourmet Traveller WINE, Louisa has built a reputation with
white wine, especially Riesling and Viognier from our valued Eden Valley vineyards.
She is a celebrated champion of these varietals across the wine world.
VINTAGE CONDITIONS
A moderate winter led into a warm, dry spring
giving a somewhat sedate start to the growing
season. This weather continued into summer until
the end of January when 25mm of rain fell. The rain
was welcomed and gave the vines the drink they
needed to finish off ripening the grapes. The warm
days during summer and autumn were mediated
by cool nights, leading to great concentration
and length of flavour.
TERROIR/PROVENANCE/REGION
The majority of the Cabernet Sauvignon components
were sourced from four vineyards in the Barossa
Valley. The diversity of our vineyard selection provides
the rich, lifted Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics and
palate structure for which The Signature is renowned.
The Shiraz components include plantings of varying
vine age, the oldest were planted in 1925. These
blocks are of sandy loam, featuring yellow sand and
ochre clay over red clay. The combination of these
Barossa blocks provides a Shiraz with sweetness,
fullness, depth and layers of complexity.
TASTING NOTES
A very deep, dense, red in colour. Aromas of red
currants, perfumed cedar and complex, savoury,
dried herbs. This Cabernet Shiraz blend shows precise
aromatics and is classically rich through the middle
palate with exotic florals, cranberry complexity and
dark chocolate. A full-bodied wine complemented with
a long, flowing, precise tannin profile. A wine that truly
reflects the generosity and refinement of the 2016
vintage. Very stylish.
FOOD PAIRING
Enjoy with beef tenderloin and blackberry dressing, or
mushroom bourguignon
