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.

Smells

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

Tastes

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 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!
