Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2016
Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia, 2016
The 47th release of this 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. Some of the Shiraz vines were planted in 1925. Wild yeast fermentation of each grape variety, separately, parcel by parcel. Bottled unfined.
"Yalumba's 2016 The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz is a Barossa-based blend of 53% Cab and 47% Shiraz. Aged in a mix of barriques and hogsheads (28% new), it offers up scents of cherry, cassis and tobacco, with grace notes of cedar and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied, it's concentrated, silky, streamlined and long on the finish—very much a classic claret style despite the high proportion of Shiraz. Each year's edition of the wine is dedicated to a notable Yalumba employee; the 2016 is dedicated to Chief Winemaker Louisa Rose." 94/100 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, February 2021
Also awarded Gold Medal at TEXSOM International Wine Awards, 2021.
Pair with beef fillet accompanied by beetroot and horseradish, or pinto beans with mushrooms and caramelised onions.
