- The Signature Cabernet Shiraz was first made in 1962. Each release is a ‘salute to an employee or person who has made a significant contribution to the culture and traditions of the company’. The Cabernet and Shiraz grapes derive from old vine material in the Eden Valley and Barossa Valley. After batch-vinification the wine completes fermentation in barrel, followed by maturation in Yalumba-coopered new and seasoned American and French oak. It is typified by rich plum/dark chocolate/panforte aromas and flavours, dense, chalky tannins, superb generosity of fruit and underlying savoury oak. Langton's Classified since 2010. Promoted to the 'Outstanding' category in 2018.
Varietal: Cabernet Shiraz

"Two years in oak, then two years in bottle prior to release ' it's a lovely approach. There's something old-fashioned about the flavour of Yalumba's Signature red blend ... and I mean that in the most positive of ways. As a young-ish wine there isn't a great deal to it ' but then, it's made to be aged. It has a lovely mix of dusty, briary, curranty flavours and more robust, chocolatey oomph, the blend of cabernet and shiraz leaning towards the former in terms of flavours, though with excellent support. It has fine tannin and enough flavour ' though there's also an (attractive) sense of lightness here. If you usually like Yalumba's Signature blend you will like this ' it's not overdone, it's medium-bodied in a classical way. '

"The 2005 Signature is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Shiraz aged for 22 months in French, American, and Hungarian oak, 31% new. Purple-colored, it emits an alluring perfume of cedar, leather, spice box, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. On the palate it shows off an elegant personality, incipient complexity, succulent fruit, ripe tannin, and a pure finish."
