The Signature Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

The Signature  Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

It is with great pleasure we present our 45th vintage release of The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz – a superb 2014 vintage that honours Chris Greening. We raise a glass of this wine to celebrate Chris’s years of service, commencing in 1989 as Sales Manager, S Smith & Son, Adelaide. Chris rose to State Manager, South Australia & NT in 1998, in 2016 this was coupled with managing Western Australia, before retiring in 2017.

The Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz blend is a distinctively Australian style, and The Signature has set the benchmark for this iconic style, drawing heavily on Yalumba’s great Barossa resource of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz vineyards. Deep and intense – a wine made for longevity, very much `The Signature` style.

Terroir & Site The majority of the Cabernet Sauvignon components were sourced in the Barossa Valley from four main vineyards as well as one vineyard in Eden Valley. The diversity of our vineyard selection provides the rich lifted Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics and palate structure that the Signature is renowned for. The Shiraz components include plantings from as old as 1925, 1935 and 1945. These blocks are of sandy loam, featuring yellow sand and ochre clays over red clay. The combination of these Barossa blocks provides the Shiraz sweetness, fullness, depth and layers of complexity.

This wine is medium to deep brick red in colour and opens with perfumed fruits, showing pretty blue exotic florals, pomegranate and cranberry, with milk chocolate and liquorice depth. The palate is medium weighted, with a fresh tight acidity carrying through. Very stylish, very approachable and very drinkable. Decant and enjoy with a char-grilled rump or eggplant steak with all the extras.

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.
