The Scribbler Barossa Cabenet Shiraz

The Scribbler Barossa Cabernet Shiraz

The Scribbler Barossa Cabernet Shiraz is a youthful embodiment of The Signature which reflects Yalumba’s dedication to this blend and celebrates its heritage.

Vintage 2012 in the Barossa could be summed up as a vintage without extremes. La Nina conditions moderated throughout 2011 leading to good soil moisture at the beginning of the growing season. Average temperatures through spring and early summer enabled the vines to flourish giving healthy balanced canopies and good fruit set. Mild conditions through January to March allowed the Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes to ripen in ideal conditions producing fruit with outstanding depth of flavour.

The wine opens with floral notes of red compote berries. Very coastal aromas, and a fresh palate, with a very direct line of fruit running through and hints of cool mints and rich midpalate textures. This is an energetic wine, with a mouth coating powdery tannin finish.

South Australia

The Barossa Valley is one of the major regions in Australia, where many of the major wine companies are based. It is believed the first vineyards were planted in the 1840s by Silesian migrants (who settled in Bethany). There followed a rapid expansion of plantations. The early styles of wines produced were heavy dry red wines and fortified wines that were popular both domestically and in Britain. After the Second World War the styles shifted to lighter table wines with production of Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The Barossa Valley is home to some very well known names such as Seppelt, Wolf Blass and Penfolds as well as many smaller producers. The climate is Mediterranean with hot dry summers and cool wet winters, making it ideal for viticulture. The main wine styles: White – Semillon, Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon-Chardonnay blend; Red – Shiraz (full bodied & ripe) with Old Vine Shiraz a speciality of many vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Shiraz-Grenache-Mataro blend, Cabernet-Merlot blend.
