Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2013
Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz, Barossa, Australia, 2013
A classic Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz blend matured for 20 months in 37% new French barriques, Hungarian, French and American hogsheads with the balance in older French, Hungarian and American barriques and hogsheads.
The colour of The Signature 2013 is almost impenetrable, this is a wine of aromatics and fineness with great depth of concentration. Showing dark red powdery currants and the leafy freshness of mint and cool spices, the aromatics are complex Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is all about Shiraz with dark plum, licorice and a potpourri of berry fruits, round, rich and complete with an ironstone depth of tannin, giving the support that will take this through the cellar for a very long time.
Not to be opened for at least 5 years, but if you weaken, enjoy with a char grilled rump steak with all the extras
