Yalumba The Signature is one of Australia’s two most outstanding Premium Red wine bargains. First released in 1962 it is crafted to excite with each vintage marked by a special “Signatory” , a person who has left their legacy on this remarkable 170-year old Aussie family owned wine company.

2016 Signature is sensational – indeed it’s 96/100 sensational according to international critic James Suckling. A classic Cabernet Shiraz blend it’s in the class of Penfolds Bin 389 at $99 bottle but at our special price of $42.99, the price difference is a massive $56 bottle in Signatures favour.

History of Signature...
The first Signature was released off the great 1962 vintage. This outstanding and classic Australian Cabernet Shiraz blend has acknowledged 57 Signatories; all people who have embraced and enhanced the traditions and culture of Yalumba. 2016 is the 54th vintage and current release and its signatory Louisa Rose, is Chief Winemaker at Yalumba - her first vintage there in 1992. Louisa embodies everything that Yalumba and the Signature represents... strength, character, tradition, innovation and leadership.

The Wine...
Sensationally pure on the nose, encompassing cassis, blueberry pie, blackberries, ripe plum, leather, tobacco and cedar, along with a myriad of wild floral notes.

The palate is polished, silken and deeply concentrated, the ripe, sweet tannins fading into a supporting role even at this early stage. The finish is long and layered, with berry, plum, chocolate, liquorice and fine cedar, the wine is powerful, yet composed.

2016 is one of the finest Signatures deserving of its James Suckling 96/100 and without doubt one of Australia’s finest Premium wine bargains. At its elsewhere price of $64.99 it is outstanding value... at our special price of $42.99... it is outrageous quality v price not to be missed.

Enjoy, JEFF

Description

The 47th vintage release of Yalumba’s iconic Signature, 2016 signatory Louisa Rose embodies everything that Yalumba and the Signature represents. Her tenure at Yalumba is aptly mirrored in the great 2016 Signature. Intent, deeply layered and concentrated, silky-smooth, powerful, yet fine with it. The Cabernet components come from 5 different premium vineyards in the Barossa, while the Shiraz comes mostly off the Schiller family vineyard in Nuriootpa on the valley floor. A wine that can enjoyed upon release or cellared with confidence for 10+ years.

The finish is long and layered, with hints of plum, chocolate and liquorice, the wine is powerful, yet composed. An absolute gem of a Signature, secure at least a pack and enjoy over the next 5-10 years - although it is already amazing drinking!
