Yalumba Barossa Shiraz Cabernet

Yalumba Barossa Shiraz Cabernet

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

With 170 years of unbroken independence, Yalumba continues to make wine at its founder’s home estate under direction of the same family today. Samuel’s Collection honours Yalumba’s founder Samuel Smith, his spirit of independence and conviction to invest in the land and make great wine.
VINTAGE CONDITIONS The growing season began with a wet winter and spring, providing plenty of water throughout the root zone for the vines to access. Spring and early summer temperatures were mild and below average, resulting in a long, even ripening period. Warm, dry days with cool nights during late summer and autumn were ideal for grape growing, producing grapes with a richness and purity of fruit, balanced with concentration of flavour. VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING Select parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz were handpicked and crushed into open top fermenters. The balance were machine harvested and fermented in static fermenters. The wild yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate fermentation and then cultured winery yeasts were added to complete the process. Different fermentation options allowed us to optimise each individual batch and promote excellent colour, rishness and texture. The wine was matured for eight months in 16% new French, Hungarian and American oak hogsheads and barriques, with the balance in one to five year-old French, American and Hungarian oak.
TASTING NOTES Initial Shiraz aromas include ripe plum and cherry, followed by the leafy, cedary spice and red currant aromas of Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is rich and very generous, yet soft and supple. Balanced flavours linger throughout the long finish.
Enjoy with prawn, chilli, garlic and rocket linguine or a kale, black bean and avocado burrito bowl.

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.
